Jesus wants you to know Who He is intimately, not by what the world says, but by what His Word says. Ask Him into your heart, give Him lordship, then begin the most incredible journey ever. It is a great adventure! You will understand His loving kind nature, His consistency, faithfulness, goodness and realness. I don’t want to know a lot about God. I want to know God. It’s not about acquiring knowledge of Jesus, but rather feeding a friendship with Him. You can’t really know God until you know Jesus. Knowing Jesus is to understand the nature of God. God may change His mind but not His nature. There is no other way to know Jesus than by personal experience that nurtures relationship with Him. Prayer is the doorway that takes you to the inner room of intimacy with Him. Jesus above all else! He loves you, cares for you tenderly, is constantly aware of your presence, your needs, your heart. Love Him above all else as He loves you!
“…I am the bread which came down out of heaven.” John 6:41.
Jesus is the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. Jesus grew up in the LORD’s presence like a tender green shoot, like a root in dry ground. There was nothing beautiful or majestic about his appearance, nothing to attract us to him. He was despised and rejected— a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief. We turned our backs on him and looked the other way. He was despised, and we did not care. Yet it was our weaknesses he carried; it was our sorrows that weighed him down. And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for his own sins! But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was whipped so we could be healed. This is my Jesus, Whom I love and serve.
