Do we know Him?

Updated on March 2, 2012

I think I know you but I don't know you...

I scream out and shout how good you are every Sunday, always arriving on time with my pressed shirt.My black suede shoes are never too shiny, i wouldn't want the girls to think I've over done it now lol.

Note pad and pen strapped by my side ready to hear the gospel and go home feeling refreshed. I whipser to myself "Damm do i feel good". Funny enough a voice says to me "you think you know me but you don’t".

I pay no attention to it as I’m drinking my life away, my eyes fixed on girl who walks by likes she prey. Lustful thoughts thumping through my mind ready to make them a reality,and even though I know it's a sin I'm not really bothered. After all, I'll just pray for forgiveness when I get home simple.

Too tired to pray so I say to myself "another day". i haven't touched the bible this week ; been on the Internet all day humming slow jams, impressed by the amount of girls I’ve got on facebook ,then someone has to go and post a video about God.

I watch it, I feel it, but after an hour its back to the usual. It was only an emotion. That voice comes again this time much more stronger but I’m a stubborn lad, and there's no way I’m backing down now. Forget it, it's just me day dreaming I tell myself.

You see I think I know you but I don't. I get offended when peoplen don't believie in you, I get so fustrated when people show disrespect to our religion. As for me i think I'm doing a good job at least when i do wine a girl or swear at times or lie i go church to make up for it u know I'm good init.

" You think you know me but you don’t know me ". These words trembled through my entire body. My face suddenly changed, and everything went still. The silence in the room was so sharp it started to cut through my guilt and left me in an uncomfortable state.

The voice said to me " Do you love me? Are you thankful that I’ve protected you since the day you were born? You say that you know me but do I know you?

I couldn't speak, my eyes became saddened, and I no longer wanted to see what i had become. I had no answer, I just cried and cried but nobody came to my rescue. The room became dark, and the shadows grew bigger and bigger . I cried out " No, I don’t know you father my life does not reflect you or glorify you. I say that I'm a believer but yet I'm still living the same life". Still there's no reply, and i go on screaming " father i don’t read your word all the time i don’t pray to you all the time nor do i speak the your word to others I'm sorry"

Again there was no reply, just the horrible feeling in my gut like I've killed someone.the tears running down my face spread across the floor, so much pain i'd never felt before was hitting home. The voice spoke again, " Do you want to know me? If so then stop living like the world and embrace me into your heart. If you ever need help or advice call me and I will never let you down, I am always here if you let me in."

So you see, does Jesus Christ know you or are you one of those who think you know Jesus but in truth, you don’t.

      Hey lola thanks for your post. I'm glad to see you have a relationship with God. I pray it continues to grow, i feel that many people can relate to this and i hope so may of us can get out of feeling this way and enjoy a new life with God.

      Thanks for the read. It helps me to try (try) to pray without ceasing. It helps me to remember Who and What and Where my God is. Might not be in the same place as yours, but just as Loving, I'm sure. Thanks again.

      Love from Lola

      Many of us see only what we want to see and nothing else; what a shame. The real prejudice exists within ourselves. Very provocative writing!

      I have found my way to your hubs-behind in reading new hubbers-I have to say that this is a very truthful hub to all of us. When we change our lives and our actions to meet our words is when we truly know God. A very good read this Sunday afternoon!

      It is next to impossible to know Him - who is He, where is He and how is He? I am agnostic you know...

      Eman welcome to Hubpages....Your hub describes many people that "know" in their "knower", what they feel. For those who deny the obvious they know to be true, hurt not only themselves, but the Father who waits patiently, wanting for them the peace and power that is constant when the door is open.

      "Be still and know that I am God" Our Father deserves our hearts in full submission. Now and forever be still enough to hear as He promises to reveal His message :)

      Great job Eman!! It made me think of a verse from a song...In this world of toil and snares...If I falter, Lord who cares...Who but thee my burden shares...None but thee, oh Lord, none but thee. Keep up the good work!!

      Hi Eman,

      You remind me of many of the young men we have in our church body, and having just read 'Do we know Him' I don't fear for you!

      Advice? - Make the top picture full page, it's more dramatic, and think about putting some 'eye candy' pictures in the main body of text. Adding a text/photo boxes where " i go church to make up for it u know I'm good init." ....ends will allow you to add a photo or two, and allow for an AdSense line of ads to be added to the page, which may bring you some cash!

      Apart form that it's fine, though you could run a spell checker over it, but then again you are speaking in vernacular so maybe you want it 'street cred'

      That seems to apply to all, and hits home in a very real way. It exposes most "christians" and forces them to question their actions

      rogers im feeling what your saying g the problem is with alot of us we dont know how to love God or Love God at all u feel me we ask for forgiveness because we feel guilt but dont actually understand the meaning for forgiveness . is it possible for a thorn three to produce apples ? its impossible alie so then how is it a possible to be a chrisitain but still be worldly? are we stating that even though we've accepted Jesus Christ , he has made no difference to our lives ? If the scriptures does not influences our minds then how can defeat temptation u feel me

      Fam This is what goes through my mind nearly all the time. it's true as an individual you need to take a conscious step towards God and make a conscious effort to follow the path he so clearly laid out. Nothing good in this world is easy to get, all the materialistic things and desire of flesh lead to nothing.

      Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him Psalm 34:8........No one is perfect E but the fact that you wrote this means ur striving to find that perfection which in itself is wat God asks of us
