Know vs. Known

Abstract Silhouette PrayingI know some things about life in general. I know some things that won’t work and I know some things that will work. I know enough about some things to be downright dangerous. There are other things that I know very little about. I know what I believe about God and His Word. I know what I believe about Creation. I know what I believe about Salvation.  I know what I know, but it’s way more important to be known by God. Check this out….

But knowledge puffs up while love builds up. 2 Those who think they know something do not yet know as they ought to know. 3 But whoever loves God is known by God.
4 So then, about eating food sacrificed to idols: We know that “An idol is nothing at all in the world” and that “There is no God but one.” 5 For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are many “gods” and many “lords”), 6 yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live. (1 Corinthians 8:1b-6 NIV)

I want to be known by God. I love the Lord and I want to live my life to honor Him. His Word says that he will know me.  He is like no one else on this earth. He is the Creator of all that I see and know on this earth. He is worthy of my genuine love, utmost honor and respect. He is the Amazing Almighty God who sent His one and only Son to this world to serve as a sacrifice for my sin. He loved me first and to be known by Him all that is required is love.

I can’t begin to wrap my head around all the amazing characteristics and facets of God. I just know that I feel His Presence in me. My obedience to His call upon my heart is crucial to me knowing Him deeply. When I follow His call, my trust for Him grows and His love for me deepens. I want to be known by God above all else.

Pressing On!
