Breathe

Charlie Hall said something during a worship set at the OneThing conference that really struck me as profound. It was after we had sung the song “One Thing.”

The last stanza says “All of life comes down to just one thing, And that’s to know You, oh Jesus, And make You known.”

I never realized it, but technically there’s 2 things there- to know Him and make Him known. Charlie Hall explained it this way: Breathing is “one thing” — you breathe in, and you breathe out.

If you know Him, you must make Him known.
To make Him known you must first know Him.

Exactly.

One Thing
by Charlie Hall

Single minded, whole hearted, one thing I ask
That I may gaze upon Your beauty, oh Lord
That I may seek Your Holy Face
That I may know You in an intimate way
And follow after You all of my days

All of life comes down to just one thing
And that’s to know You, oh Jesus,
And make You known
