There is a significant difference between knowing about God and truly knowing God. It is all about relationship. To know about Him is to know the right words, to memorize some stories and to even to be able to speak about Him. I have lived this sort of existence for many years of my life and thought I was doing well. Take a moment to think about people in your life…there are some you know about and there are others that you truly know very well. God desires to be someone you truly know.
To truly know Him means to be in relationship with God daily. Through reading, prayer and quiet time between just you and Him. To experience his presence in your daily walk of life. It means you are willing to share your highs and lows with God. It means you love and trust Him. No matter where you are in life the best way to engage this relationship is to accept His Son Jesus Christ into your heart.
“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
