Do you know Jesus?

Hello everyone! I am still alive and doing well! Not that anyone ever checks my blog anyway. I wouldn't if I were you! :0)
I have been so convicted lately by my 5yr old daughter, Paige. She has a new wonderful habit! She asks everyone we meet if they know Jesus. And guess what? They do. So then she asks them if they love Jesus and guess what, they all do. Then she asks them if they have a Bible and yes they do. Then the HARD one, "Do you read your Bible?" More times then not this is where they say, "No." So first I am convicted because my sweet daughter who is 5 is caring about people's salvation more than me! Then I am just sad that people think they can claim Christ and not read His word and obey it. I'm sorry but Jesus does not say this is possible. He says "If you love me you will keep my commandments." How can you keep His commandments if you don't know what they are? If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, & quacks like a duck and says I'm a chicken would you believe it? How about if it looks like the world, walks like the world, & talks like the world and says I'm a Christian? Will Jesus believe that? So what does Paige say when they say no they don't read their Bibles? She says, "Well, read it alot! Have a nice day!."
I hope that everyone is keeping their eyes turned upwards in great hope and anticipation to the returning of our Lord and Savior! I also pray that you are striving to enter into the straight gate. My next post will be about How to be Perfect!
Well, Read it Alot!!!

I check your blog almost every day, because my blog's sidebar sometimes syndicates snippets from in :) It is a great encouragement when little children share with other people about Jesus. This reminded me about a couple of my favorite verses to share with people, John 8:31&32.

I believe that our salvation is based on His love for us, not our love for Him; But continuing in His Word is what sets His true disciples apart from the fakes. However, I do believe that somebody can have eternal life without having all their ducks in a row.

I have a common saying much like Paige: "Continue in the Word." :)

Keep it up-- I read every post you write! :)

I'm not exactly sure what you're saying is impossible. Clearly, claiming Him verbally is possible no matter what you do! So what DID you mean?

There was some disagreement around the house about what your main point actually was. I hope you can clarify, because I personally found this post pretty encouraging.

In the meantime, we love you guys and hope to see you around!

Peace. --Jacob
