“Don’t let the wise boast in their wisdom, or the powerful boast in their power, or the rich boast in their riches. But those who wish to boast should boast in this alone: that they truly know me and understand that I am the Lord.” Jeremiah 9:23-24

Do You Really Know Me? 
By Tammy Glover
 
I am the Creator of heaven and earth. I am your father and I created you in my image. I am love. I am merciful. I give my blessings generously. I am your protector. I am righteous. My hand is always open to lift you up. I always listen. I am patient and compassionate. I only have good intentions. I will never lead you astray. I never lie but I open your eyes to the truth. I am just. I care for you. I am the light and the only way to salvation. I am God Almighty. Do you really know me?

If you really knew me, you would not get offended when someone asks for your help. You would make time to listen and instead of offering judgment, you would offer encouragement. You would not seek things that only benefit yourself.  You would pray for each other. You would not harm each other physically, verbally or emotionally. You would be slow to anger and quick to forgive. Simply put, you would love each other, for this is what I have commanded. I have given you many examples to teach you how to love each other. Now, think carefully when I ask you again, do you really know me?

“Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law.” Romans 13:8

  1. Thanks again for the encouragement. We need to learn God’s ways everyday! Keep up the writing. It’s such a blessing to me.

  2. This week’s blog touched me. As Christians, many of us choose to only show “Jesus” on Sundays and tend to forget about our real responsibility of telling a dying world about His great love for us. Thanks again for the encouragement!
