Jesus Christ who is also God Almighty, the One through Whom and by Whom all things were created, the One who holds all things together by His power, invites us to GET TO KNOW Him, to FOLLOW Him and to go on a SPECIAL ASSIGNMENT with Him, so that we can GET TO KNOW HIM, so that we can be part of His Kingdom.
Jesus does not just call us to save us. He calls us to become part of the Household of God. We can only get to KNOW Him if we go WITH Him, if we FOLLOW Him. He will take us on a SPECIAL ASSIGNMENT that He has prepared for us. He will take us through the valleys and over the mountains. He will take us through GOOD TIMES ind BAD TIMES, through difficulties but He will never leave us and He will never forsake us, and through our trials and tribulations and through the challenges that we face and overcome with Him because we follow Him, through those things we will get to KNOW HIM.
Very few people get to KNOW Jesus Christ because very few are willing to FOLLOW Him. Very few are willing to go on that assignment with Jesus Christ so that they can become closely acquainted with Him, so that they can learn to TRUST Him, so that they can learn to ENDURE and PERSEVERE, and be approved as sons of God.
Most believers just want FIRE INSURANCE. They don't want to go to hell but they don't want Jesus ether. They would rather spend their life studying the Bible and being religious than to TRULY get to know the King of kings and the Lord of lords. They do not want to go WITH HIM, they don't want to WORK FOR HIM; they want to enjoy THEIR lives, they want to have A LIFE, ENJOY LIFE go after the lusts of their flesh and then in the end they want Jesus to accept them.
If we are not willing to go WITH JESUS through the ups and the downs we will never get to know Him. If we are not willing to forsake our own desires, our own plans and our own ambitions and go after Him we are not worthy of Him, we will never get to know Him. And He will say to so many believers who thought they were saved, He will say to them:”Go away I never knew you, you workers of wickedness.” All because they would not go with Him, they would not FOLLOW Him and they would not go on that Special Assignment that He prepared for them.
Are you willing to go WITH JESUS all the way until the end so that you can truly get to know Him?
May Jesus bless you.
