Knowing God



I found a couple of scriptures and I am sure there are a lot more that describe ways of how to recieve eternal life, I want to present them each, but I want to focus on the thread that goes through them all.

The first one:
John 3:16
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life.

Can you see who was given? The Son.
Can you see what is necessary? Believe on Him.
If I believe on Jesus Christ, I have eternal life.
Another way of saying it might be: "Believing on Christ is Eternal life."

Sound strange? Look at the next scripture:

The second one:
John 17:3
Now this is eternal life: That they may know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

Knowing God is eternal life!! To know God and to believe on Jesus Christ is eternal life.

Now remember, God chooses to reveal himself to whomever he wants. We can not know God from our own minds. He meets us in our Spirit.

So what did He do?
1 Cor 1:30
But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God--and righteousness and sanctification and redemption--

Jesus Christ became what we needed. He became the Wisdom of God to Us. So to know God is simple, have Jesus Christ!! Having Jesus Christ, is knowing God, look at this:

The third one:
1st John 5:12
He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.

Having the Son, means having life, means knowing God, means believing on Christ, means having life.

You can not seperate these!! If you know God, it means you DO believe on Jesus Christ, it means you DO have eternal life, it means you DO have the Son.

The fourth one:
John 4:14
but whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall become in him a well of water springing up unto eternal life.

Drinking of Him is eternal life.
It is knowing God,
It is having Christ
It is believing on God.

Have you seen the thread? The idea running through these scriptures?

John 14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life: no one cometh unto the Father, but by me.

It is all about Jesus,

In the first scripture Christ is the gift unto which we believe to receive eternal life.

In the second, Jesus is the knowledge, the wisdom through whom we know God.

In the third, Jesus is the one we have to have eternal life.

In the fourth, He is the giver of the water springing up unto eternal life.

What else do we need?

Jesus Christ is the ALL of God, He is everything God intended for us to have. There is no secondary gift, no additional flavours, no addons.

In Christ, you will find all your needs fulfilled.

John 14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life: no one cometh unto the Father, but by me.


This is the essense of the Gospel: Have Christ.

Have Him by believing, have Him by knowing God, have by drinking of His life giving water, have Him by receiving Him.
Have Him by All of Him, cause He is the ALL of God.

There is not enough time in our human lifetimes to have Him in all the ways He present Himself.
Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Bread, Shepherd, Door, Bride, Life and so the list goes on!!

The simplicity of Jesus Christ is unfathomable. And it is all inside of the christian, in each one of us believers.

You, can know Him personally and deeply. Far more personal, and far more deeply, than your mind can explain.
Our Lord did not come to be feared or explained, or proved, He came to be known.
He wants a relationship with you and me, personal and deeply, not simply as "He is my saviour" Yes, that is glorious and wonderful. But There is so many more ways to know Him.

Before we try to evangelise two weeks after we were save,, let us take the time to get to know Him. Yes, the more you know, the more you realise, how little it is you know. But knowing Him is eternal life!!

And the more you know, the more you will want to know. Know HIM. Unless, you always listen to someone elses knowing, that is not necessary and will not suffice. You can know Him yourself.

He who has the Son, has Life. Inside you is depths and riches that only you can discover and explore. Inside you is Jesus Christ. The wisdom of God, waiting to reveal Himself so you can know Him.

Paul said: 1st Corinthians 2:14
For the natural man is not able to take in the things of the Spirit of God: for they seem foolish to him, and he is not able to have knowledge of them, because such knowledge comes only through the Spirit.

And later:
That I may KNOW him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;


You may know Him.
