The way to know God
February 10, 2010
"And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent."
It's an amazing thing to realize that we can know God. But do you know why it's possible to know him? There's really only one reason, and it's because God wanted you and me to know him!
Now, some people have this concept of God that is more like the wizard in The Wizard of Oz. Do you remember when Dorothy, the cowardly lion, the tin man, and the scarecrow finally arrived in Oz? They faced a fearsome sight. There was thunder and lighting and the travelers were frightened for their lives. But then the little dog pulled back the curtain to reveal an ordinary man using tricks to seem powerful. The wizard didn't want to be known for who he really was.
But God is not some powerless wizard. No! In his marvelous grace and love, God desires for you to truly know him and he wants to give you eternal life. That's exactly why he sent Jesus to earth, so that you may "know the only true God, and Jesus Christ."
Do you long to know him? Are you searching?
Look for God in the life and person of Jesus and you will find him! That's his promise to you. And knowing him will make your life worth living.
LOOK FOR GOD IN THE LIFE AND
PERSON OF JESUS AND YOU WILL FIND HIM!
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
