 I Want To Know That You Know

            Shepherd’s Voice sings a snappy song entitled “I Want To Know That You Know.” It’s a fun song to sing and goes by pretty quickly. However, the message of this song is one to which we each need to give serious consideration. The bottom line is, are you sure where you will spend eternity? Eternity is defined in the Cambridge dictionary as “time that never ends.” That’s pretty simple to understand. And according to the Bible, there are only two places where eternity exists; one is Heaven and one is hell. Like I said, serious consideration needs to be given to this matter.

          In this day and age when people can be so easily offended, a phrase in this song comes to mind… “You may say it’s none of my business. You may think it rude of me to pry.” Has anyone ever said something like this to you when you start to speak to them about Jesus?  How sad. How can they come to know the truth about Jesus and the free gift of salvation, forgiveness of sin, and eternal life with Christ if they won’t listen? 

          Another portion of the song says “Just because you go to church on Sunday, and just because your name is on the roll, doesn’t mean you’ve really met the Master. But if you’re born again, my friend, the evidence will show.”  A great scripture reference about this can be found in I John 2:4-5. It states: “Whoever says, ‘I know him,’ but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person. But if anyone obeys his word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him.” Powerful words!

          The message of the song and the prayer from my heart is this: I want to know that you know, I want to see that you see, I want to trust you trust and believe you believe in the only one who can save your soul. And who is the only one? Jesus Christ, that is his name! Don’t be fooled… Satan wants to deceive us into believing that things we do can get us into Heaven. Wrong!  “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9

          So, do you know that you know where you will spend eternity?  I pray that you do know, and that that place will be in the presence of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ!

"If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart 
            that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart 
        that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess 
                                                             your faith and are saved.”
