Head knowledge in Jesus will not save us, but it must be from the heart, an entrusting my life unto. As Jesus Himself said -- "Many shall say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' "
These were men who were preaching, prophesying, healing and doing mighty acts -- in Jesus' name! And Christ said there would be many of them. Yet Jesus responded:
"I never knew you, depart from me, you who practice lawlesness."
Lawlessness?! These 'good deeds?' Good deeds can't save us, knowing factually about the salvation message can't save us. Yes, we need to know the salvation message to share with others and believe, but it is more than just a head knowledge. It is something to base my life upon; something that will determine how I make decisions, how I live my life.
Does Jesus know you? For it is "he who does the will of my Father in heaven" that will enter into the kingdom of heaven.
And for those of us who know Him and are known by Him, what a glorious day that will be.
