Three young boys were playing in one of the boy’s backyard. As boys will often do they urging; the topic was which father was the most important. Boy #1 said, “My dad is so important he personally knows the mayor of our city.” Boy #2 “That’s nothing! My dad personally knows the Governor of our state!” Boy #3, not to be outdone said, “Well, my dad is so important,he personally knows God!” I am sure that ended that argument.
You have heard it said,”It’s not what you know but WHO you know that makes the difference.” In the secular world that is sometimes true but in the spiritual realm, it is ALWAYS true. Many people today think they will get to heaven if they do more good than bad. Unfortunately, that is not true. Ephesians 2:8-9
Eternal life is obtained by Who you know; not be what you do. It is by having a personal relationship with God through the person of Jesus Christ. “Eternal life is to know you, the only true God, and to know Jesus Christ, the one you sent.” John 17:3 (CEV)
