I have a lot of people that know who I am but they do not really know me. Just because they have heard my story, or went to church with me, just because they have acknowledged me in someway does not mean they really know me. It takes a great effort to get to know who I am. It takes a relationship of trust, communication, questions and answers, studying of what makes me who I am. It’s the same with God. You can’t just talk to God on Sunday for a few minutes and say you know him. It takes an understanding of his likes and dislikes. It takes a relationship of trust and intentional love on our part. God doesn’t expect perfection, he expects effort. He expects relationship.
