This year, we have purposed to seek God in order to have a closer and more intimate relationship with Jesus. Many of us have known Christ from Childhood in Sunday School; some of us say we are Christians because we were born in a Christian home. Years later, how much do we know Christ? Do we know Christ or do we just know about Him.

 

Last year, I was doing a training in Kenya and I asked participants to introduced themselves. Most of them introduced themselves as President Barak Obama's first cousin. I asked them whether they had ever met him....There was loud laughter in the room. I asked them whether he knew them. I probed further to know whether if they met in the street they would give each other a high five. Reality hit. Maybe they know his grandmother, his village, some of his family members...they know he lives in the White house in Washington, is married to Michelle and they have two beautiful daughters but they soon realized they they do not know President Obama at all nor does he know them.

 

The same can be said about some of us in terms of our relationship with Jesus. We know about Jesus but do we really know Him?. In Phil. 3:10, Paul writes 'That I may know Him...' Not just about Him. Paul is talking about spiritual intimacy. Having a relationship with Jesus. Becoming more like Him - 2 Corinthians 3:18 says 'but we all, with unveiled face....are becoming more and more like Christ; being transformed from glory to glory by the Spirit of the Lord;'

 

To know Christ our hearts and lives need to be changed through His Word - Jer. 15:16,James 1:21-25. We need to experience the power of the Word of God in our lives.

Hebrews 10:25 encourages us not to give up the habit of meeting together.

 

When seek Christ and find Him, we will make Him known in every situation of our lives. Read Daniel 3:17-28. 'Blessed be the God of ...'

 

My prayer is that like Job in Job 42:5 'I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear but now my eyes see You.'

As we seek God and find Him, may we experience a renewed level of intimacy with Him that we cannot keep to ourselves but pass on to a seeking and hungry world.
