Jesus is ready to meet with You! Jesus visited me and told me to tell all my friends something. He said:
“Daniel, tell all of your friends that if they want to get to know me…”
And then I was given a vision of me holding up the Gospel of John and pointing to Chapter one.
Your response is important.
God gave me a metaphor for anyone who resists the message. He gave me the story of Naaman who came to Elisha to be healed of his leprosy. Elisha sent out a servant to tell Naaman to wash seven times in the Jordan river and that he would be healed.
Naaman took offense that Elisha would not even come out to meet him. It seemed as if he wasn’t even going to do what Elisha told him to do. This shows how stubborn our pride can be. His servants reasoned with him and he finally relented and washed seven times in the Jordan and received his healing.
Perhaps Jesus is asking us how persistent will we be in our pursuit of relationship with him? Would we be willing to read through the Gospel of John seven times?
I believe that Jesus will meet with us as we marinate our minds in the Scriptures given to the apostle John for the very purpose of leading us into a very real relationship with the Lord Jesus. Consider the following Scripture from the Gospel of John that informs us of it’s purpose:
“…these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that by believing you may have life in His name.”John 20:31 NASB
I am reminded of John 17 where Jesus defines eternal life:
“Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. 2 For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. 3 Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.”John 17:1-3 NIV
This is the offer on the table. To experience and know Father and Son.
