Day 8 Many Other Things
Jesus also did many other things. If they were all written down, I suppose the whole world could not contain the books that would be written. J0hn 21:25
The longer with we walk with the Lord and build a relational history with Him, the more we realize we have a long way to go. I’ve heard many experts with decades of experience in a particular subject say something to the effect of , “the more I know, the more I realize I don’t know.”
When I began to “study to show thyself as one approved” (2 Timothy 3:15), one day I realized that the study of God, the “knowledge of God”,Â is inexhaustible.
God is completely fascinating. If you’re bored with this stuff, it’s because you don’t realize what you are lacking.
You donâ€™t realize that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked. Revelation 3:17
People need God. It’s a built-in design of the human spirit.
Jesus revealed God in the fullness of His reality, His truth. Jesus showed us who God really is and what God is really like.
By His life and teaching, as well as His death and resurrection. During His 33 years on the earth, Jesus did much more than could be documented, in order to show the love of God and build up our faith in Him.
Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name. John 20:30-31
Â Worship is response to God’s invitation.
Healthy relationships are built on mutual love, trust, respect and intimacy.
The invitation of God is to engage in a healthy relationship with Him.
“Get to know me” He seems to be saying, “because I already know everything about you. I desire to bless you, but you gotta do life my way. If you do that, you’re gonna be a whole lot happier.” (Uncle Robbie paraphrase).
It is a lifelong quest to build a spiritual history with God, to invest in an authentic, sincere relationship with Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
But the rewards are worth it. There is joy in the journey.
I invite you to pray with me today.
â€œJesus thank you for showing me the Father. Thank you that You know me completely. Help me to know You more, moment by moment, day by day, chapter by chapter. By Your Spirit and for Your glory.Â Help me to do Your will today. In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.â€
According to the historical church calendar, the Easter season is the 50 day period from Resurrection Sunday to Pentecost Sunday.Â Iâ€™ll post a fresh devotional thought with my sunrise photo of that morning, everyday through Pentecost, commenting as the Spirit inspires. Check out the rest of the series here.
I invite you to join me on this journey from Easter to Pentecost!
