Let This Journey Begin!

“Come, follow me,” Jesus said... - Matthew 4:19 -

Growing up unchurched in a country in the far east, where the gospel of Jesus Christ has not been reached nor His church been planted adequately, I never knew that the God of the universe, who created us in His image (Genesis 1:27) and set the eternity in the heart of mankind (Ecclesiastes 3:11), wants to have the intimate relationship with me. So, when I was asked, "Do you know God?", not only I said "No", but also I had this question of, "Can we?"

The heartbeat of Christian faith is to know Him, the only true God (John 17:3). This is not the act of a moment, but the call for a lifetime. The invitation of Jesus is "Come" AND "Follow Me" (Mark 1:17). And, because one knows Him intimately and through this abiding in Him, he or she can bear fruits (John 15:5) that last for eternity.

Our hope with these blog posts is to encourage, challenge, and inspire you to come to and remain in the intimate relationship with God in and through our Lord, Jesus Christ, so that those around us will also come to be saved and to the knowledge of truth (1 Timothy 2:4), which is Jesus Himself (John 14:6).

Let this life-long journey of knowing Him intimately begin!
