As a Christian, our life goal should be to know Christ and make Him known. We should live in light of the salvation we have been given and share that message with the world around us. Jesus prays for this in John 17:35: “O righteous Father, the world doesn’t know you, but I do; and these disciples know you sent me.” Through knowing Jesus, we have access to God the Father.
When we know Christ and His salvation, we will experience everything He has to offer us as His followers. Just as His disciples walked with Him, soaked up everything He taught them, and gave up everything to follow Him, we should live in the same way. We may not be able to walk with Christ physically, but we can “walk” with Him daily by reading and meditating on His Word and praying. This is the purpose of the Holy Spirit! Since He lives within us, He walks with us, teaching us His Word, and interceding on our behalf just as Jesus did for His disciples.
To know the love of Jesus is to know true, abundant life. Through the Holy Spirit, you have a constant advocate for you, a teacher and guide, and a helpmate. You, dear one, are never alone! Spend some time in prayer and meditation today, truly thanking God for walking with you and helping you through this life.
