Do you know where Jesus was born? Do you know who His earthly parents were? Do you know where He was baptized? Do you know how old He was when He started His ministry? Do you know where He was the night He was arrested? Do you know who sentenced Him to death? Do you know where He was crucified? Do you know what day He was resurrected? Now, the most important question of all? Do you know Him personally?
As we begin a new week, let's focus less on all the facts about Jesus and more on getting to know Him on a personal basis. The Bible teaches us that He longs to have a deep relationship with us. Just think about the scope of that for a minute: The Lord that created this whole world and everything in it still wants to be a personal basis with us. How awesome is that?
John 15:15 says, "I no longer call you servants....instead I call you friends."
Father, please help us get closer to You today. Teach us how to have a personal relationship with the God of the universe. In Jesus name, Amen.
