Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Psalms 100:3 NIV
To KNOW ABOUT God is important but more important is to KNOW OF God. Knowing facts about God is helpful and can lead us to a desire to have a relationship with Him. To experience God is to know of His presence in our lives. The Greek word for know in John 17:3 is ginosko, meaning to be felt, aware, through personal experience. The Hebrew word for know in Psalms 100:3 is yada, meaning to be aware, acquainted with as a familiar friend, to discern.
The Knowing of God is not an option, it is “eternal life”. To know the creator of you, to know that you belong to Him who is good, eternally faithful and loving gives a profound security, fortifying your sense worth. The knowing of God brings joy…
Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful
songs. Know that the Lord is God.It is he who made us, and we are hisa ; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. aOr and not we ourselves Psalms 100 NIV
