Let’s say you have a best friend that lives on the other side of the country. You tell me all about this person frequently. Although I have never met this person, I know all that you have told me about them.
I know a lot about them, but I don’t know them.
Perhaps It’s the same way with God. We may hear about God all the time or know a lot about Him...yet there may be a huge distance between our heart and His. We may not KNOW Him.
Do you know a lot about God or do you know God personally?
“I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death”
“Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.”
