If you’ve ever gone on a tour or to a museum, you probably noticed that your guide always knows all about the people, places, or things that are on display…down to the smallest of details. They can tell you how a person lived, what they ate, their likes & dislikes….it’s almost as if they knew them. Almost. But of course they didn’t. They can’t tell you what was in their heart, who they loved, what made them cry. They can tell you facts and stats but they can’t tell you what it was like to have a conversation because they’ve never met. How many of us know about Jesus? We can tell you about His birth, about His ministry, His death, His resurrection. We can tell you about how He healed the blind man & brought another back from the dead. We can tell, teach, & preach about His miracles. But do we know Him? When we stand at the throne of God to face our judgement and we tell Him how we’ve told others about Him, is He going to say, “Well done my good and faithful servant.”? Or is He going to say, “Depart from Me. I never knew you.”? Do you know Him….or do you just know about Him? There’s a huge difference. My fear is that when that day comes, there are going to be so many people…good people…who will be told to depart, because although they were willing to learn, they weren’t willing to turn their lives over to God & form a relationship with Him. Don’t just know about Him. Know HIM!! Let go…and let God! Before it’s too late.

I'm a busy mom, submerged in chaos but infused by the saving grace of God. And while some days it feels like I am hanging on by a thread, I know that everything will always be ok as long as the thread that I'm hanging onto is His. Matthew 9:21-22 For she said to herself, "If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well." But Jesus turned around, and when He saw her He said, "Be of good cheer daughter; your faith has made you well." And the woman was made well from that hour. View all posts by Tonivandewiele
