You’ve got to know Him

You’ve got to know Jesus. He is meek, and humbled himself from the highest to the lowest for your sake.  You would be making a fundamental mistake to judge his worth according to his humility, which is the very basis of your salvation.

Is your life without purpose? Is your life too complicated? Is your life sin-laden? If so, it is because you haven’t known Jesus. But how can you know him without first accepting him? You could know a theory without having to know its author, but you could not know a person without meeting the person.

A great mystery of gospel is that God became a person, not only to accomplish man’s salvation itself, but also to make it possible for we mortals to know God. For the proud, the very notion of God becoming a man stumbles him. Not only can he not accept this notion, in fact he supports his entire unbelief with reasons found in this notion.

For the proud, the very humbling status of Jesus becomes a reason for his despising the gospel. The proud prefers a luminous god which he makes up in his own mind, a god which he can control, a god which he can comfortably entertain and manipulate in his thought and his own domain.

However, regardless of the haughty thoughts of the proud, God Himself cannot be known by human being by their own effort. Philosophy and religion may lead to interesting ideas about God, but never to God Himself. But God gave us His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, so that you may not only be saved but in fact know Him.

Through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, God has not only become knowable but also desires to be known by us.

“All day long I have held out my hands to a disobedient and obstinate people.” Romans 10:21:

Will you turn to Him to receive His saving hands? You have nothing to lose, but everything to gain.
