What do you know?

Posted in

How much do you know? I mean, how much knowledge do you have? You may be well educated or you might have gone no further than grade school. You may have received your education from the streets. You may be even smarter than Albert Einstein. But here’s an interesting perspective. It’s not how much you know, but what you know. I know what you pillars in the church will say “it’s who you know that matters.” I get that. That is certainly true regarding a personal relationship with God. It’s who you know…Jesus Christ. But is there a place for what you know? I think so.

Consider what John 9 records.  Jesus heals a man born blind. The religious leaders seemed to go after the man himself in order to get to Jesus, They wanted him to identify Jesus as the one who violated the Sabbath by healing. As they pressed him, verse 9 says,” He replied, “Whether he is a sinner or not, I don’t know. One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!” It wasn’t how much he knew, but what he knew. He knew one thing and this was it: He was blind but now he could see. Let that sink in. His blindness was replaced with sight. The results of Jesus invading your life should change things about you. What has changed about you? What can you see now when once you were blind? What do you know now that you were ignorant to before? If you’re a follower of Jesus, you now know the most important “who” in the universe. Now, what do you now know that you must act upon?
