Do you know who you worship?

When Jesus spoke to the Samaritan woman in John 4:22, He said “You worship what you do not know…” I believe that this is the state of many churches and many people in the Christian community today. Many People try to worship Christ without knowing Him. In many churches worship is based solely on emotion, which can easily lead you astray. A true encounter with God will be characterized by a changed life, not a moment of emotion.

It is amazing to me how many people who claim to be Christians are ignorant of the Bible, yet it is the Scripture (the Bible) that reveals Christ.

John 5:39 (NKJV)

You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me.”

Without knowledge of the scriptures, you will not be able to know Christ, and you cannot build a relationship with someone you don’t know.

However; the better you know the scriptures, the better you will know Christ. The better you know Christ, the deeper and more stable your relationship will be. Don’t be like the Samaritans, get to know Christ and trust Him with your life. Pray and study the Bible daily, and build a deep relationship. The alternative is either no relationship at all (not good, eternity in Hell) or a very shallow relationship that will crumble under the slightest pressure.
