How can we know Jesus?
As His creation, we have three sources to get to know Jesus. The first is Jesus. If you pray to Jesus, you will learn the very nature of God. This is due to Jesus being ⅓ of the Trinity. As such He is God. In His Earthly form, He was the best reflection of who God truly is.
Jesus was raised from the dead and as such, still lives today. He still embodies who God is and is still the bridge between God and man. When you ask Him for help and guidance, He will respond by sending the Holy Spirit to assist you in life.
Learn who the Holy Spirit is
The second source is the Holy Spirit. Once Jesus sends the Holy Spirit to assist, you will experience a relationship with the creator of the universe. The Holy Spirit guides and directs you through life, through the good times and the bad. He never leaves you or forsakes you.
He is with you as a wonderful counselor. You can bring your problems to the Holy Spirit, and while you may not experience an immediate resolution, you will experience comfort and peace.
He is a wise teacher, opening your eyes to the universal truth of who God is and what He sacrificed for you. He will assist you in applying the truth found within His Word in your life, making the fullness of life available to you.
The third and final source is The Bible. In it you will find a great many things. It is an instruction manual for life and it is a history of the Hebrew nation.
Reading the Bible and praying are the very foundations of getting to know Jesus, but it is just the foundation. As we will cover in future messages, there are many more ways to pursue God and how you can have a more full and complete relationship with Him.
