Do you have a church where you fellowship every Sunday? Great, but the whole point is not about going to church or meeting fellow brothers and sisters, one has to know Jesus Christ and accept Him as the Lord and Savior. I am glad that the scripture speaks of knowing Him, and not just about Him. Knowing about someone is as good as you don’t know them because you may have heard about them or have seem them. God wants us to have a personal relationship with Him.Knowing Him means having a one on one relationship with Him, talking to Him daily, being open to Him and let Him take the lead in your life. It is so sad that we are living in a generation that is only interested in knowing more about the pastor, the prophet and the church…leaving no room to know God and what His word teaches. Knowing everything about the church and the pastor will not work if you don’t know the Lord Himself. Apostle Paul says: that I may know Him, not the church, not the pastor, but Him and experience the power that raised Him from the dead. (Philippians 3:10) There are many people that know the church and all the affairs of the church but still going to hell because they are not saved. These kind of Christians always behind knowing the things of God, the things of church and they have seen the things of God. There is a difference between knowing God and knowing the things of God. Christians of this day seek more the benefits of being a Christian yet denying the actual power that transforms one to live a Christ like life.
Where are the ministers of the word that will preach the same gospel which the apostle Paul preached? The Gospel that has power to change the lives of people. Where is God when every preacher preaches what they want. I believe that if apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers were not only preaching to keep people in the churches, this gospel would have been changing the lives of many. We don’t preach things that will make people stay in our churches, but things that will make people stay in the Lord and fear Him. People have twisted the gospel to what they want to hear, and not the truth. Our God is still the same God of love, God of power. The God who used Moses, the God who used Elijah. Let us seek God with all our heart and fear him. I thank God that I know my pastor, I know my church and I know my fellow brethren in Christ, Now I want to know Jesus Christ and the power that raised Him from the dead.
