Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 02/01/15

This week’s scripture is from 1 John:

Jesus Christ 3“And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true”    (1 John 5:20a)

Jesus came that we might know Him and the beauty of His grace. Certainly He came that we might receive salvation and be reconciled to God, but He wants us to know Him, as we are known by Him. The Lord wants us not only to believe, He wants us to become disciples.

He knows us and He wants us to know Him as brother and friend, as well as Lord and Savior. To know Him, to be disciples, we must spend time with Him. He has given us His holy word; He has taught us how to pray; He has sent the Holy Spirit to give us understanding. Let us resolve to know Him who is true, who came for us, and who died for us.

May the Lord bless you with a heart that hungers for Him.
