How much do you know Jesus?

I was just thinking about my relationship with the Lord and how great He has been. Time after time He has impacted my life in ways that I could not have anticipated. I started to think about how much I knew Him and I have come to the conclusion that I need to know Him much much more. I realize that I have spent much of my free time “entertaining” my self with spirit depleting activities that didn’t matter. I need to spend more time with Him. Not just when I’m tired and going to bed. He deserves better than my leftovers. You know, leftover time, that is time when I’m worn out and I feel obligated to say a sentence or two before I fall asleep. He deserves the best from me.

Please tell me what you think. I hope I’m not the only one out there who feels this way.


  1. That’s true… because God is always there, human tendency is to take him for granted. It’s easy for me to feel like I did Him a favor by praying or fasting when really that should be a regular thing. And afterall, who’s benefiting from getting to know Jesus more?… I am. So I think getting into a habit of talking with Him daily, constantly, depending on Him and finding out how we can serve Him moment by moment, day to day, is really important. I’m not there yet, but I hope to be someday. Got to shake off the complacency and see the bigger picture that it’s not about me or any of us.

    That’s just my thoughts but I agree with you Max.

    Thanks Hope. Glad to have you on board. You are right in everything that you said. God does not owe us anything. Right now we deserve the most painful death but He took that upon Himself for us. We must make it a habit to appreciate all that He does for us daily. He deserves the praise and honor.
