Get to know God next year

31 December 2023 ‘Let the one…boast…that they have the understanding to know me.’ Jeremiah 9:24 NIV

God said: ‘Let not the wise boast of their wisdom or the strong boast of their strength or the rich boast of their riches, but let the one who boasts boast about this: that they have the understanding to know me’ (vv. 23-24 NIV). The truth is, if you don’t know God it doesn’t matter how much money you have in your bank account, or what certificates hang on your wall, or what position you hold in the company. Until you have a relationship with God, you haven’t really started to live life to the full! And part of getting to know Him is learning the truth about yourself. After witnessing the miracle-working power of Christ, Peter acknowledged, ‘I am a sinful man!’ (Luke 5:8 NIV). When the prophet Isaiah saw the Lord sitting upon His throne, he cried, ‘Woe is me!’ (Isaiah 6:5 NKJV). But God doesn’t tell you the truth about yourself and then leave you that way. Like a good doctor, He tells you what the problem is so that you can get the best treatment. And the best treatment for sin is salvation through the blood of Jesus. You’ll never really know God until you’re related to Him through Jesus Christ. So if you’ve never accepted Jesus as your Saviour, why not start the New Year by praying: ‘Father, I repent and turn away from my sin. I’m putting my life in Your hands, trusting You as my Lord and Saviour. Thank You for the gift of eternal life. Starting today, I’m asking You to lead and guide me and fulfil Your will through me. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.’ Happy New Year!
