Get to Know

John 17:25-26

John 17:25-26

How do you know you know someone? You get to know them. “Get” meaning, spend time with them, talk with them, and develop a relationship.

Jesus put it this way, “O righteous Father, although the world has not known You, yet I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me; and I have made Your name known to them, and will make it known, so that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.” John 17:25-26 (NASB)

There are only two things worth doing: To know Christ and to make Him known.

How can I introduce someone I don’t even know? I can’t. By introducing someone, I am implying there is a relationship there, right? I at least know their name. Most likely, I know more than that; I know who that person is, what they are like, and what they are about.

Get to know Jesus.
“Get,” meaning spend time with Him, talk with Him, and develop a relationship.

Get to know Jesus.
“Get,” meaning you are allowed to and you are excited to. It’s as if it’s a reward. We get to know Jesus! It is a reward!

Knowing Jesus wasn’t always the case. Old Testament folks would have been ecstatic to get to know Him. We don’t have to wonder about the mysteries of the future like they did. We don’t have to guess. It’s all laid out for us and it is beautiful.

We get to know Jesus, so get to know Jesus.

May God’s Love be with you
