THIS Is Eternal Life!
God KNOWS you! Does that thought comfort you or frighten you?? The presence of God caused fear and trembling to those who were confronted with His holiness and His power in the days when God revealed Himself to Israel and to their enemies during the times of the prophets and even before. In the same way, the presence of Jesus caused fear and trembling to those who recognized His holiness and their sinfulness and Jesus spoke often of the judgment that God would send upon an unbelieving world. So how can we who believe in Jesus rejoice in living in the light of God’s presence? David knew what few people in his day understood and what only those who are born again by the Spirit of God understand today: There is great joy and comfort to be found in knowing that God knows you intimately and that in the Savior, whom we know is Jesus Christ, through God’s amazing grace, fear and trembling have been replaced by faith and love. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is good news precisely because in it God assures all who believe that we can live in His perfect presence without fear, having been reconciled to Him by the blood of Christ. Knowing GOD knows YOU compels you to walk in the light of His presence! Where else would we want to be?!! “Jesus, You have the words of eternal life!”
