Getting to KNOW Jesus Christ
Most people who call themselves Christians do not know what it means to be a Christian. A Christian is a follower of Jesus Christ. You cannot follow Jesus Christ if you do not KNOW Him. His sheep HEAR His VOICE, they LISTEN to Him and they FOLLOW Him.
Most professing Christians do not know Jesus Christ, they have never met Him. They do not know His VOICE. How can they follow Him?
Most of those who call themselves Christians are just religious or they belong to a church, or they grew up in Christianity. Maybe they know some Bible verses but they do not know Jesus Christ. They CANNOT be followers of Jesus Christ, they do not KNOW Him.
When you tell Christians that they have to know the voice of Jesus Christ and be led by the Holy Spirit they want a QUICK FIX, they want an instruction book and they go and look for answers in the Bible or from other people. There are not answers in the Bible, other people don't have the answer. It is about KNOWING Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is GOD. He made us. He knows us. He has always been with us from the beginning but we do not SENSE Him, we do not KNOW Him because we have never met Him, but if we seek Him we will find Him. We have to be serious about knowing Jesus Christ. We have to seek Him with all our heart, humble ourselves before Him, speak to Him, pray and ASK Him to reveal Himself to us.
There is no EASY FIX, there is no METHOD. It is about crying out to Jesus, seeking Him, being obsessed with knowing Jesus Christ. If we draw closer to Him and we yearn for Him, we focus on Him and seek Him with all our heart, then He will reveal Himself to us and we will get to know Him. But we have to SEEK Him and SEEK HIM always, not just seek Him until you have one experience, or until Jesus reveals Himself to you once. We have to WALK with Jesus, STAY with Him and be close to Him every day and we have to follow Him until the very end to have salvation. Those who endure with Jesus until the very end, they are the ones who will be saved.
You have to seek Him with all your heart, and never give up. You have to EXPECT Him and WAIT on Him and He will OPEN your spiritual eyes and spiritual ears, you will hear Him, you will see Him, you will sense Him, you will become aware of Him every moment of your day. But if you turn your back on Him and you ignore Him then you will lose sight of Him, you will be separated from Him.
Seek Jesus with all your heart and He will reveal Himself to you.
May Jesus bless you.
