Then you shall know Me
Hebrews 8:10,11,12 - For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.
This scripture was the promise which the Lord made long before through the mouth of his prophet Jeremiah. And this promise is fulfilled when we receive the sacrifice of Jesus in our lives.
Even though I was born in a believer family and knew that Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins, yet I never accepted the sacrifice. Only when my world shook and I found no other solution in my life, then I accepted the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and was born again.
It was after being born again in Christ I would experience the Holy Spirit. Not that the Holy Spirit was not there before and was not helping me. It was now because the Word was written in my heart and I was now anchored in Him that I could experience Him.
It was the Holy Spirit Who started to open my mind and reveal the Word to me as started to walk with Him. Initially it was not easy because I came with a heavy load of garbage and had to shake them off, sometimes at a high cost of loosing many human relations. But knowing what I was and Who my God is, I knew there was no other option than to hold on to Him.
So I encourage you my brothers and sisters in Christ, if you are born again in Christ please hold on to Him at what ever price you may have to pay, for that price will be too little compared to what you will receive. And as for those who are not born again yet, I tell you, you have no hope in this life of sin so repent and receive the sacrifice of Jesus in your life and be saved.
