You Know Him, And Have Seen Him…
Jesus Christ said “I am the truth, the way and the life…”. We all want to know the Truth, we want to speak the Truth and we want to live in the Truth of our life. Even the most hardened of hearts has a desire to speak Truth in their life so they may know God. The person with the longest list of homicides still wants to live in the Truth of their life. They want, in their heart of hearts, God to speak to them and to tell them they are loved, they are beautiful and they are needed to be a the man or woman that God intended them to be.
If ye had known Me, ye should have known My Father also: and from henceforth ye know Him, and have seen Him. ~ John 14:7 KJB
It is in our not knowing Him, Jesus Christ, that we do not know the Father and in not knowing the Father we do not know love, kindness and beauty. We knew it when we were children and our hearts were carefree, innocent and could not see anything ugly. It is only when our dad, or mom, beat us to a pulp or someone at school mistreated us in a horrific manner or someone abused us, as a child, in ways that children should never experience life. Then we see ugly. Then we see our nakedness and we don’t like it and do our level best to hide the scars.
We want to love. We are made to love one another. God made us in His image. Once a person wraps their head, and their heart, around this Truth, living the Life according to the Way becomes a curiosity. We want to know more. We find it in our hearts that maybe the way we are living is out balance with who we are suppose to be. We discover new things that hold our attention. We seek, first, more love. We ask, first, for help. We knock, first, upon the door of others seeking and asking for wisdom.
Our heart may still be hard but the vise grip that holds it seems to be loosening. The chains that have us shackled to hatred begin to break. The darkness in our soul suddenly has a spark of Light and we begin to move differently as we can now see. Pain begins to ease as we can feel something that we may have not felt in years, if not decades.
We all want to live in the Truth of our life. We all want to know love. We all want to be a beacon of hope for others. Some of us just don’t know it and don’t know that love, hope and salvation is, in fact, what we all want in our life. It is when we know Jesus Christ that our life changes. If Jesus Christ lives in you, please go and find someone, today, that needs to meet Him.
Either the Scripture is the divine Word of God teaching us how to live and how to be a reflection of God, or it’s nothing more than a historical account of events.
