This Is What I Know

knowing

I know that this world is pretty messed up and it doesn’t appear to be getting any better.
I know that greed, hatred and apathy within humanity is real.
I know that we’ve taken what is good within our environment and we’re destroying it.
I know that time is running out, both for ourselves and for our children.
I know that the wisdom of the world has brought us to where we are today.
I know that many years ago a man called Jesus walked this earth.
I know He told us of another reality, one that I did not know.
I know He spoke words which shed light on the darkness within our reality.
I know He spoke of how God’s ways and thoughts were different from our own.
I know He said He had come to lift us out of the darkness.
I know He said that He was God and we need to hear what He had to say.
I know that He said He was the way, the truth and the life.
I know He healed many and nature responded to His commands.
I know that He said we’re all broken and that He had been sent to make us whole.
I know He said that He had come to do for us what we in ourselves could not do.
I know that He said He had been sent to die for us, that we might live.
I know that the powers that be of this world killed Him.
I know that He rose again from the dead, like He said He would.
I know that He told us that because He lives, we also would live.
I know that His followers believed Him because they turned the world upside down.
I know that I took Him at His word and believed Him.
I know that I began to understand the reality that I had not known.
I know that the reality of His Spirit lives within me.
I know His presence fills the deepest longing of our hearts.
I know that He has been true to His word from the day that I believed.
I know that He is patient, loving and forgives, when we turn from the errors of our ways.
I know that He waits for all and wants no one to lose the life that He gives.
I know that if we ignore or reject His grace, we will reap all that we have sown.
I know that if you’re reading this today, it’s not too late.
This is what I know.

Revelation 3:20 NIV “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.”

Worthy is the Lamb! Blessings!
