Know Him & Be Known


I’ve been studying through Isaiah this week and already just in chapter 1, I have been overwhelmed at our God.

Our God is Incredible.

Those names of God that I listed yesterday—that you listed yesterday—could go on and on.

But what amazes me is that we can know Him. We- sinful, rebellious creation- were called into His family to be His daughters & His bride- to know Him.

And not know Him like we know our postman.

No.

We get to know Him in the most intimate, beautiful, & close way.

The beauty and majesty of Christmas is that Jesus came down to earth to be with us, to save us, to rescue us. He wanted us. He- the King of kings and Lord of lords, the Creator; the Holy One of Israel came down to earth to be with us. To redeem us by His justice and righteousness, that we can know Him through repentance. To know Him and be known by Him.
Fully.
Totally.
Vulnerably.
No hiding.

He invites us into a deep, intimate relationship with Him.

So whether you have never entered into relationship with Jesus, or you have but haven’t been so vulnerable with Him lately- He’s waiting. He’s right here. Wanting you. Inviting you in. Pursuing you.
Come be with Jesus. He is all in all. Worthy of all. Let Him hold your heart and be your Lord today & forevermore.

 

For Friday fun, here are some photos of Jeff & I at the tree farm.

  9. Alyssa, thank you for your blogs, and how passionate, faithful, and loyal you are to serving Christ! There are very few young adult women who are like you who is being used for the sake of Christ! Not too long ago I was redeemed by our Savior, and now this world doesn’t even compare to what Jesus Christ can offer. I look to you for inspiration, strength, and guidance as I am walking my own personal walk with Jesus. Your new marriage with Jeff is a gift that God has had for you, and I pray that one day I am worthy enough to be blessed with the same :). I’m in a new relationship now and I pray for this guy to be a lover, follower of Christ! I ask that if you would pray for us please. Thank you for your blogs, and I look forward to reading more!
