Knowing God and Seeing God….

download (5)To begin with, knowing God personally is the only way we sinners can be saved. Jesus said, “Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent” (John 17:3). After healing a blind beggar, Jesus later searched for him and found him in the temple, and the following conversation took place: “Do you believe in the Son of Man?” asked Jesus. The man said, “Who is he, sir? Tell me so that I may believe in him.” Jesus replied, “You have now seen him; in fact, he is the one speaking with you.” The man said, “Lord, I believe,” and he fell on his knees before Jesus (John 9:35–38). Not only was the beggar given physical sight, but his spiritual eyes were also opened (Eph. 1:18) and he received eternal life. His first response was to worship Jesus publicly where everybody could see him.
Today as we look around we see people putting their faith in everything. What is your faith in?



We all love our name… really we do, that’s is how we have known it was time for dinner growing up! Ha, Even if that name called was not the name on our birth certificates we love that name. All through our life our name is used in applications, and interviews and report cards. Even at Chick-Fl-a they ask us what our name is for the order. We love our names. Luke 16 Jesus tells the Pharisees what he thinks about them and their separated hearts and heads. The “rich” man and Lazarus is as the story is told in Sunday Schools. This “rich” man is not in fact Rich at all, he is currently as when the story was told in hell paying the price for his sin’s. He had a redeemer that paid his sins and was revealed to him in the Old Testament, but this man did not accept this. He trusted in his own works and “fell short of the Glory of God”. Today, he is still paying for his sins. Today he is still, as in Luke 16, asking for someone to tell his living relatives about Christ. Today, we have a name, will we in heaven? Revelations 20:15 “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire”

Question: Does God know your name? Why?
