Know God or No God?

As my husband and I were recently on a short out of town trip, I noticed a billboard with the following caption: “Know God / No God”.  The billboard was divided into two parts. The section on the left had a lovely picture which included heavenly things and asked the question “Know God?” The opposite side had a picture of a fire burning intensely (representing hell) and simply stated, “No God!”  What a thought provoking sign. It sure caught my attention.

I would hate to go through life without “knowing Jesus”. God’s Word in I John 5:20John 5:20
English: American Standard Version (1901) - ASV

20 For the Father loveth the Son, and showeth him all things that himself doeth: and greater works than these will he show him, that ye may marvel.

tells us, “We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true by being in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.” And also in Acts 13:38Acts 13:38
English: American Standard Version (1901) - ASV

38 Be it known unto you therefore, brethren, that through this man is proclaimed unto you remission of sins:

it states, “Therefore, my friends, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you.”

Both of these passages indicate that we may know Jesus and that He is the only way to heaven.

What happens if we have “no God?” We will be punished and spend eternity in hell. He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.”  I Thessalonians 1:8

I want to spend my time here on earth knowing God and knowing Him in His fullness. I want every day to count for Him.

A verse that we all learned as children still holds true today. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16John 3:16
English: American Standard Version (1901) - ASV

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life.

My challenge is that you will start out the new year by knowing God!
