Is Knowing God All It Takes To Make Us A Christian?
Please contact us if you have questions or if you need some encouragement.
The idea of knowing God is an exhilarating and awe-inspiring concept. It fills our hearts with hope and excitement, for to know God means we are connected to the ultimate source of love, wisdom, and power. As we dive deeper into this idea, a striking realization dawns upon us: even Satan knows God. However, what sets us apart is not merely knowledge but the choice to honor and follow Him wholeheartedly. Satan’s rebellion against God stemmed from his desire to be exalted above Him—an act that led to his banishment from heaven. Similarly, many individuals within our churches today possess knowledge about God but fail to genuinely honor or follow His teachings.
It becomes evident that mere intellectual awareness does not equate to true discipleship. Instead, what matters most is whether we embrace a profound understanding of who He is—a loving Creator who longs for an intimate relationship with each one of us. In His infinite grace and mercy, He desires nothing more than to share His Holiness with those ready and willing to receive His truth as revealed in the Bible. Let it stir within your heart that you are deeply cherished by Him; He yearns for a personal connection with you—yes, you! And here’s the marvelous part: there are no prerequisites or conditions placed on approaching Him. You needn’t strive for perfection or cleanse yourself of sin before coming into His presence; rather come as you are – brokenness included – allowing God’s transformative power to renew your spirit. Think about this question…Do you really understand what it meant that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you and me? That should stir up some thoughts and feelings about what that makes you want to do? That can be the best place to start your journey of knowing God more deeply. ~ Bill Greguska
Psalm 14:2 The Lord looks down from heaven on all mankind to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God.

How To Know God’s Will For Your Life?
Knowing You, Lord
Lord, I know that I’m in a spiritual war. For me to be victorious, it is important that I get to know you as well as I can, using the essential equipment you have given me, such as my Bible (so I can read your word each day), and frequent prayer. I need to get my marching orders from you. It’s not hard to understand what you want me to know and do; I know you came into the world to live and to die for my sins. My job is to accept your sacrificial gift by faith, and to follow you one day at a time, until you take me home to heaven with you. That is the key to success in the fight.
I’m so thankful that over the years I have learned so much about you and your ways, Lord, and have grown closer to you, though I know I still have much growing and learning to do. I am glad that you saved me, and that you have sown into me the desire to obey you. I know that, because I gave my life to you as my Lord and Savior, when my time on earth is over, I will meet you in heaven. True, I sometimes get confused, but I have learned that the answers are in your word. Help me keep it simple by remembering that you love me and died for me.
Another important weapon you have given me to fight this spiritual war is fellowship with other believers. Having an accountability partner to share ideas, thoughts, and feelings with, helps me continue growing. Lord, help my understanding of you grow more each day, week, and year, with the help of other Christians.
Faith is the first step to understanding. Either it’s the Word of an infallible God, the fallible words of men, or faith in what you believe. You’ve got to have faith in something. Believe me. ~ Ray Comfort, Christian minister and evangelist, founder of Living Waters Publications.
