I write this blog tonight humbled. Humbled that Christ has laid it upon my heart to write about something so incredibly important. Humbled that as I examine my own life, I can look back over the years and can relate to all the examples described in the video below.
My heart’s desire is that you would watch the video below and examine yourself. That it would prompt you to ask yourself the most important question you ever could ask: Does Jesus know me?
You see, as Pastor Washer explains in his message, you can say you know Jesus. Most of America claims they’re believers. But even Satan believes and knows that Jesus Christ is LORD. Even the demons know Jesus Christ is LORD. We can say we believe and know Jesus Christ is LORD. We can say we know Him, but can He say He knows us?
If our entire identity as a Christian is reliant upon a prayer we prayed as a young child, but our life shows no more evidence of being a Christian than someone living a worldly lifestyle – then my friend, we need to be afraid. If I believe I’m a Christian because a parent or pastor told me that because I prayed a prayer, but my lifestyle doesn’t prove it, can I say that Jesus knows me?
“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is narrow and the way is constricted that leads to life, and there are few who find it. “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorn bushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, you will know them by their fruits. “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, in Your name did we not prophesy, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name do many miracles?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’”
Again, my prayer is that the Holy Spirit will speak to you in this video. Feel free to comment below with your thoughts, or reach out to me if you have any questions and would like to know how you can answer “Yes” to the most important question you’ll ever be asked.
