Do You Know Jesus?

Many people have heard about Jesus, but not many people know Jesus. It’s one thing to know about Jesus, and an entirely different thing to know Jesus on a personal relationship level. We can consider the first group has having a “head knowledge” of Christ, while the second group has a “heart knowledge” of Christ. While a mind knowledge of who Jesus Christ is could lead to a repentant heart, that leads to salvation; this is not always the case. Salvation begins the lifelong process of becoming more Christlike. We desire to know more about God, the Father, and Jesus, our Savior, and to develop a personal relationship with them. Once we accept God’s free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ, our hearts, minds and souls begin to sense the presence of God’s Spirit interacting with our spirit – God is opening our senses to Him. The Apostle Peter describes it as follows:

“Though you have not seen Him, you love Him; and though you do not even see Him now, you believe and trust in Him and you greatly rejoice and delight with inexpressible and glorious joy, receiving as the result [the outcome, the consummation] of your faith, the salvation of your souls.” ~ 1 Peter 1:8-9 (AMP)

To know Jesus and to love Jesus is to obey Jesus:

In John 14:15 Jesus tells us, “If you love me, obey my commandments.” And the Apostle John explains it in this manner: “Loving God means keeping His commandments, and His commandments are not burdensome. For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith.” ~ 1 John 5:3-4

Through the lifelong process of loving God, we slowly will become more like Jesus in our thoughts, words, actions/reactions, and deeds. Don’t allow the evil one to defeat you when you stumble and fall along the way – this world is out to steal the joy that you have obtained access to through the salvation of your soul. When we stumble/fall, we ask God to forgive us, and in the power of His Holy Spirit we learn to avoid that pitfall again.

Where will you spend ETERNITY?
