Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble  you, and thereby many be defiled; 

 

 

 

 

Hebrews 12:15

KNOWING GOD

 

Every generation of Christians must check itself to discern whether its mission

and actions are God-honoring. We continually have to ask ourselves, “Are we

still serving the Lord and our neighbor faithfully and sacrificially? Or have we

drifted into a ‘bless me’ mentality?”

Christ knew exactly where the masses’ hearts were when they began

following Him. “You want to be with me because I fed you, not because

you understood the miraculous signs” (John 6:26). Why does Jesus refer

to “miraculous signs” here? Think about what a sign does. It points to

something; it isn’t the thing itself. When a road sign reads, “Denver 60 Miles,”

we know we’re not in Denver yet but we’re on the way. In the same way,

Jesus was letting the disciples know that the loaves and fishes weren’t the

point. They revealed the loving care of the heavenly Father. His miracles are

signs of His care for us.

The crowd’s response revealed their hearts. “Moses gave them bread from

heaven to eat’” (John 6:31). They were playing Moses’ example against

Jesus. It was arm-twisting, like a child who goes to each parent trying to

get what he wants. Do we look for God in our midst or do we mer ely seek

His provision? Let’s be honest, often when we pray we want an answer

now, today, this hour. That’s an unfortunate trait of our world’s “have it all

now” culture. In a spiritual sense, we lack a tremendous value that the

Greatest Generation held dear: to know that by faith we’ll eventually see

great blessings.

For the Christian, knowing God isn’t about being “blessed now.” The Lord

won’t bend to our lusts to give us everything we want—when we w ant it.

His desire is to have a relationship with us—an ongoing, long-term

relationship that bears lasting fruit. So His blessings aren’t the end-all

of the relationship; they’re signs of His faithfulness and compassion—

traits that any of us would covet in a relationship.

 

Read: John 6:22-40

“I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of

knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.”

 

Philippians 3:8
