Have you experienced the fullness of God?
Even if you proclaim to be a Christian, the question still remains the same. Don’t be ashamed to speak the truth from your heart. This is exactly why you are reading this now. God brought you here… and He wants to take you into greater things.
Greater things… happiness, peace, purpose: this is what God wants for you. How does someone find God? Answer: Find Jesus…. The "Real" Jesus! Sadly, the "Real" Jesus is not known by most people today, including people that go to church and proclaim to be Christians. The real question is not, "Do you know Jesus?", but rather, "Does Jesus know you?" The following words come from John 10:27 "My sheep hear my voice, and I KNOW THEM, and they follow me." Here is how you know if you are a true follower of God: 1. You hear God’s voice. 2. You follow and obey His voice. If you can truly say without any hesitation that you meet both of these criteria, then yes, you know Him, and more importantly, He knows you!
Who is the "Real" Jesus? It actually may be easier to explain who He is not. He is not the "religious" Jesus spoken of in most churches today. It may come as a shock, but the "Jesus" in most churches is a "watered-down" version of the real thing, simply put: an imitation! Jesus Himself even said, "False Christs shall rise and will show signs and wonders, to seduce, and if it were possible, even the elect." (Mark 13:22). With so many churches, different denominations and beliefs, one would be compelled to ask, Is this God’s plan for salvation? To make it plain and simple: The "Real" Jesus is not a symbol; He is a person and He is so much more than a guaranteed access to heaven. Jesus wants to live on the inside of you and make you completely whole (spirit, soul, and body). This is the difference between the "religious" and the "real". Most people never hear the voice of God because they have received an imitation of the truth and Satan is the master-mind behind this tactful ploy.
Do you want to be known by God? Do you want the assurance that your name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life? Do you want to hear the voice of God, with an un-yielding conviction that gives you the ability to overcome every problem in this life? If your answer is yes, then be assured, this commitment requires much more than going to the altar, being baptized, or just simply calling on His name. It is more than just a one-time experience; it is a life-time experience, a life-time change! The hard truth is, very few people find the pathway that leads to this life (Matthew 7:14). Jesus said, "Many are called, but few are chosen." (Matthew 22:14). If you desire to be one of the few, then it begins with being born-again. If you are serious about making Jesus "real" in your life, then you will become so much more than a "Christian" could ever hope to be. You will become His son or daughter, a rightful heir to His kingdom! Ask Him to live on the inside of you today. Open up your heart, confess with your mouth and start a "real" life with the "Real" Jesus Now (Romans 10:9-10)! This is how you experience life the way it was meant to be; this is how you Experience God! Start your new journey today.
