Why must I know Jesus more? Many people think that it is enough just to be saved and go to church. On the contrary, life in Christ is more than that. It is a relationship that must be nurtured and developed both for earthly and eternal benefits.
Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest (relief and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls - Matthew 11:29 (AMP)
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly - John 10:10 (KJV)
To Know Jesus is to know God and your inheritance in Christ. A life without Christ is a life full of crisis. Therefore a better knowledge of Jesus keeps you farther away from crisis. In Him you live, and move and have your being.
A close relationship with the Lord is sweet! There is so much joy and peace, contentment and liberty in Christ. You will not trade your relationship with Jesus for anything else, including money if you know Him more. You would want to be with Him all the time. When you know how much He loves you, you would want to love Him back. Taste and see that the Lord is good.
Every day with Jesus is sweeter than the day before. You would love Him more and more as you abide with Him daily. The Lord reveals more of Himself to you as you walk with Him. You will go beyond seeing Him as your saviour only, to seeing Him as your best friend, a comforter, a present help in time of need, etc.
Also, when you know Jesus more you will come to appreciate the meanings of all His names because they will be manifesting in your life. For instance, you will really experience Him as your healer or provider because He will always heal you and provide all your needs.
In addition, knowing Jesus more will give you more access to all God's blessings. Jesus is the way to all God the Father has to offer including eternal life. God has designed it in such a way that you will get nothing from Him except in the name of Jesus. For you to exercise your dominion on earth and fully enjoy the package that comes with salvation, you need to know Jesus more.
Furthermore, Jesus Himself desires to have a closer walk with you. He wants you to fully utilize the power that He purchased with His blood from the enemy, but he can only teach you how to do so when you come closer to Him.
It pays to know Jesus more. It is never a wasted exercise. I will give anything to have a closer walk with Jesus. My life is always at peace because of Jesus. I am not afraid of tomorrow because I know He will always be there for me. I am not sure of many things but I am certainly sure of His love for me. His love had kept me through thick and thin. Truly Jesus is my everything. The good news is that He can also be your everything today.
