Most of us have heard the phrase- It's not what you know, but who you know. You can do awesome at a job interview and know all the right answers, but if the daughter of the CEO also applies for the same job and is fairly knowledgeable herself, chances are she will be the one to get the job. Why? Because she knows the CEO personally.
We can apply this concept to our spiritual lives too. Many people give Jesus lip service, volunteer in the church and can quote scripture for any circumstance. Does that mean that they know Jesus? When our time in this world comes to an end, will it matter that we answered all the questions right and even quote what Jesus said back to Him? Will it matter if we served Him if it was only with our hands, but not our hearts?
What will matter is knowing Him! In order to know Jesus, we must have a relationship with Him. We do this by spending time with Him in prayer and worship and by reading and studying His word. There is nothing sweeter in this world than a relationship with our risen Savior and Lord of our lives! So, yes, in the end, what will matter is Who we know, not what we know!
