Does Knowing God Help Anything?


What often holds us back in life? What is the root of our brokenness?

So often we see that it is fear and laziness.

But God invites us to step beyond our circumstances. Knowing him leads to our having courage, working diligently, and living sacrificial lives.

Jesus was the perfect example of these characteristics and he is the answer to overcoming fear and laziness. When we choose to have fellowship with him, he transforms us by teaching us how to become imitators of Christ.

Scripture speaks of this in Ephesians 5:1-2.

Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

And 1 John 4:18 describes how love does away with fear.

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

Here is a short video on the topic. It encourages us to follow Christ wholeheartedly and reminds us that seeking after God helps us live free from fear and laziness and fulfill our purpose in life.
