DOES CHRIST KNOW YOU (2)
*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*DOES CHRIST KNOW YOU (2)*
2 Tim 3:19 *Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
If you do not know the Truth: Christ, you will believe the lie, called the devil.
To know Christ is more than the knowledge that realizes His existence. It is knowing the truth about Him, being His friend.
Many are deceived today and many deceive themselves.
Miracles are good but be careful because an apparent manifestation of an anointing can be the working of Satan, 2 Cor 11: 13-15. Be not deceived!
There is a question that often comes with the statement of Jesus in Matt 7:23.
Jesus is all knowing, so why would He say *l never knew you"*?
The answer is best found in relationship. There is nothing unknown to Christ
Even from the moment we were poured out as milk Job 10:10, to the time we were in the womb Jer 1:5 and to the time we were framed and formed as humans, Ps 103:14.
Here Christ is talking about relational knowledge. Jesus was saying, He never had anything in common with them nor approved of them. No relation at all, ref Mark 3:33-35.
How well does God know you relationally?
There are people who will claim they belong to God, yet they do not belong to Him.
*Call to Word action.*
Isaiah 40:11---►🔹 *He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm,...."*🔹
John 10:14---►🔹 *l am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.*🔹
*The Christian Clarion duty*
Galatians 4:9 ---►🔹 *But now, having known God, but rather having been known by God, how do you turn again to the weak and destitute principles, to which you desire to be enslaved again anew?*🔹
Lord, let me not be cast away from your sight. Let me be a workman approved before you, in Jesus name.
Good morning all and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
