  • No one can love Jesus without knowing Him !

    Can you love something you have never even heard of before.

    Can you truly love someone that you have never met and know absolutely nothing about. If you do not know one thing about them, you can not love them.

    You do not know if they are human or not. You do not know if they love Jesus or not. You do not know if they are God or Satan.

    I hope you are coming to see that you can not love someone you know NOTHING about. What if that person turned out to be Satan, do you love him.

    I have only seen my grandchildren a few times in my life. They have lived in Japan, Hawaii, Seattle,etc. I have only seen them a few times and did not really know them. Now I did know that they were my daughters children. So I could love them some, but not like I wanted to love them.

    Tonight, my son in law, Tim, called me and asked me to help my grand daughter with her algebra word problems. Tim has a master's degree but these were word problems with two unknowns and very difficult for most people. I said I would be there in 15 minutes.

    As I was sitting next to her and watching her struggle to understand and then seeing her light up when she did; I loved her more as the night went on. Coming to know her more was my reward for teaching her. For loving someone is it's own reward.

    To know someone gives us the opportunity to love them. We can show love to a person we know little about. But it is difficult to feel love for them unless we come to know them more.

    The same is true for Jesus.

    We can not love Him unless we come to know Him. To know Him is to love Him.

    The reason most of the world says they hate Jesus, is the fact that they do not know Him. They have been told lies about Him, so it is not Jesus that they hate, but their idea of who He is.

    THIS IS WHY EVERY LITTLE TRUTH IS VERY IMPORTANT.

    EVERY LIE WE BELIEVE CAUSES US TO LOVE JESUS LESS

    EVERY TRUTH WE BELIEVE CAUSES US TO LOVE JESUS MORE

    This is why Mary loved Jesus much and Simon loved Him little. Mary knew Jesus well, while Simon did not even know who He really was. Also Mary was forgiven of much, not because she had more sin than Simon, as he thought; but because she had confessed everything she had ever done, and said, and thought, as falling short of the glory of God ( which is sin). Simon had confessed little, so was forgiven of little. Simon did not know Jesus was a forgiving God who forgave all sin if we would only confess it.

    Luke 7
    Jesus Anointed by a Sinful Woman

    36 When one of the Pharisees invited Jesus to have dinner with him, he went to the Pharisee’s house and reclined at the table. 37 A woman in that town who lived a sinful life learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house, so she came there with an alabaster jar of perfume.38 As she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them.

    39 When the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would know who is touching him and what kind of woman she is—that she is a sinner.”

    40 Jesus answered him, “Simon, I have something to tell you.”

    “Tell me, teacher,” he said.

    41 “Two people owed money to a certain moneylender. One owed him five hundred denarii,[c] and the other fifty. 42 Neither of them had the money to pay him back, so he forgave the debts of both. Now which of them will love him more?”

    43 Simon replied, “I suppose the one who had the bigger debt forgiven.”

    “You have judged correctly,” Jesus said.

    44 Then he turned toward the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I came into your house. You did not give me any water for my feet, but she wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. 45 You did not give me a kiss, but this woman, from the time I entered, has not stopped kissing my feet. 46 You did not put oil on my head, but she has poured perfume on my feet. 47 Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven—as her great love has shown. But whoever has been forgiven little loves little.”

    48 Then Jesus said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”

    49 The other guests began to say among themselves, “Who is this who even forgives sins?”

    50 Jesus said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.”



    This is why I seek to learn every truth about Jesus that I can. For every true fact about Jesus, causes me to love Him more.

    LOVING JESUS IS IT'S OWN REWARD

    IF YOU LOVE HIM, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN

    Grace to you

    What a wonderful, simple truth, Lou!

    We can not love Him unless we come to know Him. To know Him is to love Him.
    That must be why He loves us so much - because He already knows us better than we know ourselves!


    I am so glad you were there to help your granddaughter. Word problems are the WORST!
    You know not what you do because you know not who He is.

      And what a wonderful comment from you Julie.

      Amen, Jesus loves us because he knows us better than we know ourselves.

      He has much more mercy for us that we have for ourselves.

      Think of how much better he knows you than you know yourself.

      He knows the number of hairs on your head. He knows the number of cells in your body. He knows where you will be safe and where you will not be safe. Jesus knows what you can eat that will not bother you, and also what will make you very sick if you eat it. He knows WHY you do what you do, when you have no idea why.

      Yes, they were not only word problems, but word problems with two and then three unknowns. Her Dad has two masters degrees and was not able to do them. They were pretty hard problems.

      I was given a VERBAL math test that was 20 word problems like these, with no paper or pencil, and no calculator. The guy had a stop watch to time how long it took me to answer.

      I answered all 20 correctly before he could start the watch as soon as he finished reading the problem. I worked the problem out in my head while he was reading it.

      He was stunned. He sent me to have another math IQ test. After taking three of these like this, they said my math IQ was off of the chart; because I answered all the problems correctly before they could start their watches.

      You see I am a seer. I see things that others do not see. I see things before others see them. I see these things in the natural realm, the soulish realm, and the spiritual realm. I did NOTHING to deserve this gift. I have been hated for having it most of my life.

      Everyone has gifts from God. We do not have anything he did not give us. So we have no reason to have pride about these gifts. We should just be thankful for them.

      Jesus gave me this gift in math so that I could help my grandson and granddaughter; so that I could get to know them, and they could get to know me.

      It took 71 years before I knew the above.

      WHAT MERCIES AND GRACE ARE YOU GOING TO DISCOVER IN THE COMING YEARS THAT JESUS HAS GIVEN YOU ?

        Thanks for starting this thread, Lou. It really blessed me and made me think. This explains why love grows as relationships grow and flourish. And what an amazing testimony about God's willingness to instill gifts of such magnitude! I've often wondered about some of the inventions that mere men have come up with. Like the micro chip. Who could ever figure something like that out? Surely the stroke of genius behind such revelations originates from God. No man could fathom such mysteries except it were first dropped into their heart supernaturally.

        Grace,

          Amen Blane. The Lord Jesus turned the light on this subject as I was driving down the road.

          It is so simply and so obvious that we all should have thought of it. But we are blind and can not see. The Lord has to give us sight.

            His greater mercy is incredible to ponder, for no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it.

            Think of how much better he knows you than you know yourself.

            He knows the number of hairs on your head.
            Indeed, counting would be a daunting endeavor and He already has them numbered. I would have a serious challenge counting just one square inch. And by the time I'm done, some fell out and I made mistakes, and probably one or a few grew in. How humbling a realization.

            He knows the number of cells in your body.
            And holds all your atoms together with His will. The nucleus of each atom exerts like 50 megabazillion times more force than electromagnetism! Somebody told me once. Lee or Lou I think his name was.

            He knows where you will be safe and where you will not be safe. Jesus knows what you can eat that will not bother you, and also what will make you very sick if you eat it. He knows WHY you do what you do, when you have no idea why.
            He made the guy that invented air conditioning. I loved that remark.

            Aw, after such a short time I love you already, Lou. And looking forward to more time. Except uh, you get a handicap if we ever play word puzzle games. Something like we drop 25% of the words.

            Everyone has gifts from God. We do not have anything he did not give us. So we have no reason to have pride about these gifts. We should just be thankful for them.

            This prospect encourages hope. And then...eternity with Him, which amazing thing I can only crudely imagine; I'm certain I haven't even a proximate concept.

            Blessings
