To Know.....used 21 times in the letter of 1 John.
When you believe and confess in Jesus as your Savior, it's not a ONE time get to know Jesus. It's not a meet and greet party that we come and go. This word "ginosko" implies that it's not just a knowledge as book smarts, it's a relational knowing with our Savior. An everyday challenge to KNOW Jesus and getting closer and closer and closer to Him every day.
Why do you think when he called His disciples, He commanded them to "COME" to Him? It's like He's calling us to Him constantly, daily, hourly to KNOW Him. There is more than a lifetime of knowing Jesus and we will only spend few significant moments with Him throughout our lives when Jesus has asked/invited us for MORE.
