How Intimate?

Book: Under Cover

Author: John Bevere

Where to buy: I’m not sure if this is sold in leading bookstores, but I do see this book in Christian bookstores, try OMF.

Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’ – Matthew 7:23

I’m still with the book Under Cover, and my attention got caught in the footnote containing the Greek word of knew which is ginosko. Ginosko represents intimacy. Reading that verse from Jesus in Matthew 7:23, I believe, Jesus was actually saying, “I am never intimate with you.”  

We may not hear Him talk directly, but He speaks and He listens. How familiar you are with the voice of God? How intimate you are with Him?

Knowing God by just pure knowledge is far different from having an intimate relationship with Him. For whoever have knowledge do not yet know as they ought to know, but whoever loves truly knows.

for whoever loves God is known by God– 1 Corinthians 8: 3
