How well do you know someone? I assume that if you have been married for many years you should know your spouse really well. If you have kids you should also know them, if they are grown you should know them even better. How well do you know yourself, do you sometimes do things that even surprise you? What about your family, friends, church family and coworkers, do you know them well. We should know these people well if we have been around them for a time in our lives. I can say that if my wife would call me from a number I did not know that I would recognize her voice immediately. Recently I received a call from a former Jackson County Sheriff's Deputy whom I worked with in the DARE program, as soon as he spoke I knew who it was and I had not talked to him in years. My point is this, how well do we know Jesus?
Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? John 14:9
When Jesus asked this question of Philip, he had been with Jesus a while, but yet he still did not know him. I read this verse and I was on my knees crying out to the Father for I realized he was talking to me also. How well do you know Jesus?
Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you? 2 Corinthians 13:5
Have you taken the time to examine yourself, or is the thought that you are ok and do not need to be examined? We all have our faults and we must know Jesus in order to let go of these issues we may have. Remember we belong to the King and not the world.
Have an amazing day!!!
