Knowing versus Relationship

Scripture: Matthew 25:31-46, 7:21-23

If we truly know Jesus, we need to act like it and treat others in the same manner He treated them.

relationship involves connection, not only knowing who someone is. We need to not only know of Jesus Christ, we also need to connect with Him through relationship.

How can we know God on earth if we don’t  know or follow His example here on earth, set through the life of Jesus Christ?

Jesus lived out the example of God in that He:

  • preached — spoke God’s Word to the people
  • healed — brought emotional and spiritual healing to other around Him, as well as physically healing their bodies and minds.
  • prayed — even though he was God incarnate, Jesus still got down on His hands and knees and spoke to (and listened to) God

Reaching out to others, healing hearts with love, compassion, kindness, and gentleness is one of the best ways to get to know the Lord better.

We learn the Lord better when we love others better. We call that righteousness.

“If you fear it is a difficult thing to get to know the Lord better, get to know His people better.” — Ben Snyder, 10/3/2016
