Have You Come to Know and Believe

What have we come to know and believe? Is it that Jesus is Lord? If so, that is not enough. 

The disciple John records an amazing conversation between Jesus and His disciples. He has just finished sharing some hard truths for many to believe and many of His followers were choosing to walk away. Lets pick it up here in John 6:67

67 So Jesus said to the twelve, “You do not want to go away also, do you?” 68 Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life. 69 We have believed and have come to know that You are the Holy One of God.”

I wanna highlight their response found in verse 69. For them this was a powerful statement of their faith. They had come to know and believe that Jesus was the Son of God. If you are believer then you have also came to this same conclusion. You have come to know and believe that Jesus is Lord and that He is the Son of God. But is this where you have stayed? What if I told you that the disciple John had also written in another writing a higher call?

“It isn’t enough for us to just know and believe that Jesus is Lord”
1 John 4:16

16 We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.

It wasn’t enough for the disciples to know and believe that Jesus is Lord. They had to come to a revelation of His love and goodness. Where are you at on your journey? Have you declared that you have come to know and believe that He is Lord? Have you stayed there? Beloved lets not stay in that place but lets move deeper in the heart of Jesus and let us declare with our lives that WE HAVE COME TO KNOW AND BELIEVE IN HIS GOODNESS AND IN HIS LOVE!
