In the world of art and design, much of a person’s success is based entirely on who they know – not who they are or how good their work is. If you know the right people, you can be seen in the right places and get noticed at the right time. Sometimes it seems like the least talented people get the luckiest breaks.
In the world of Christianity, this principle is much the same. It’s all about who you know, not who you are or what you’ve done. If you know the right Person, you can be put in the right place at the right time. Sometimes it seems that the least likely people get the most grace.
I recently heard a pastor preaching a series called “I Know He Is, But What Am I?” As Christians, we are to base who we are on who God is. But all too often, Christians don’t even know who God is or their perspective of Him is entirely jaded. They walk around saying they are just like God, but they are just like their perception of God, not the true nature of God. We cannot truly know who we are until we truly know who God is.
When it comes to Christianity, it really is all about who you know.
