Scripture: Hebrews 8:10,11
Hebrews 8:10,11 says, “For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. None of them shall teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them.” The Greek word for “know” here means, ‘To become intimately acquainted with so one can act on another’s words.’ Do we know the Lord? Do we know Him well enough and are we intimately acquainted with Him enough that we can act on His words? There is a very important distinction between knowing the Savior and knowing the King. If we know the Savior well enough to act on His words, but we do not know the King well enough to act on His words then we have not taken advantage of the new covenant, and the full measure of what it promises. And that has horrible ramifications for standing before the Judgment Seat of the Lamb. Nobody wants to go there. Do we know the Lord? Do we know Him well enough to carry out His Judicial purposes?
