Do You Know Me?
We live in an interesting culture where we know a lot about a lot of people, but do we really know people. Because of Facebook, I know much of what happens in many peoples lives. The newsstands keep me filled in on what is happening in the lives of the rich and famous and "reality" TV engulfs us in the drama of others. But do we really know people.
Does this surface knowledge and lack of true relationship affect our faith. I think so, take a look at this passage:
John 5:39-40 (ESV)
39 You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me, 40 yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life.
This is not a new problem, we as a people are good at information, it is the relationship that we have difficulty with. Life is not in the knowledge, it is in the relationship. How is your connection with God. Do you just know a lot about God, or have you come to Him and put your faith in him. When did you last spend time connecting to God. Not just learning about Him, but connecting to Him. If you feel you are missing this part of your faith, talk with your mentor, or get a mentor, that can help you not just know about God, but Know God.
Enjoy the Journey,
