What do I know? Well, I know that my redeemer lives. A man named Job, in the Old Testament, declared that, as a fact, right in the midst of the greatest suffering and grief. Other references may be found in Psalm 17:15 and 1 Cor 13:12.
“I love Jesus, does He know? Have I ever told Him so?” Actually, the children’s song says, “Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so,” which brings to mind another children’s song. “Into my heart, come into my heart, Lord Jesus.” And when He comes in, we know that we know. Would that we would recapture that simplicity in these sometimes complicated days of Threescore and Ten (TST). Certainly some days seem like a test.
Isn’t it amazing, the amount of knowledge we have accumulated since we first learned our a-b-c’s and how to count to ten? We learn 1 + 1 = 2; nouns, verbs, fractions, multiplication -all very beneficial, but what a difference between that knowledge and knowing Jesus loves me and knowing I love him (a real relationship).
The wonder of educational knowing, simple fundamentals, will help me to read a recipe and make a loaf of bread, while knowing the bread of life, Jesus Christ, creates in me the desire to share the loaf.
One knowing is necessary for living life on Earth. The other knowing is a must for living life eternal.
