How to know Jesus better
The best way to get to know something in any area of life (Christian faith included) is to meet other people interested in the same thing.
Jesus doesn’t want his followers to be alone. On the contrary, he wishes for his friends to be together and to learn from him, as well as from one another. Therefore it makes sense to be among Christians and to form friendships with them.
Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other. Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically. (Romans 12:10-11)
The basis of every good relationship is communication and it’s the same with God. You can talk to him using your own words. Tell him about your worries, thank him for everything he gave you, or you can pray for blessings for your loved ones.
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4: 6-7)
We will never be able to have a good relationship with someone we don’t know. That’s why you should start regularly reading the Bible. The Bible points to what Jesus is actually like. It shows his character, his thinking, and his actions. Through the Bible you can hear God himself talk to you.
All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work. (2.Timothy 3: 16-17)
The Great Commision
Before Jesus ascended to heaven, he left a big task for his followers: to go into the whole world, to talk about what he has done for us, and to gain new followers for him. In the same way we are called to spread this good news about reconciliation with God (the Gospel) within our family, classroom, job, and city. God wants us to bring peace, joy, and hope through our lives and through bringing practical aid to the people around us.
Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)
