We Cannot Afford to Not Know Christ

Most of us are constantly faced by the reality that there are many things we cannot afford in this world. We often mightily resist this fact, sometimes even by ‘affording’ what we cannot pay for (i.e. going into debt). There is, however, only one eternally significant thing that we cannot afford: namely, to remain ignorant of our beautiful Saviour. We must know Christ, the Son of the living God.

Fortunately for Christians, Jesus has taken the initiative by praying to his Father that we might know him. If we belong to him, we must out of necessity be those who will know him: ‘I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me’ (John 10:14).
