Knowing Jesus

What do any of us have more precious than knowing Jesus? But will we live today with our treasure buried like a pirate’s treasure chest? Will people need to be like Indiana Jones trying to decipher our words in order to discover who Jesus is? Maybe we’re worried about how they would react if we simply shared the good news of salvation and forgiveness with them. In the long run though it will nor matter what they think about us, but rather what they think of Him. I can still remember the man who first told me about Jesus as I was walking through an inner city neighborhood in Boston one night. He simply said, ” I want to tell you about Jesus…that’s J…e….s….u…s. He loves you!” As he spoke I felt the power of Christ for the first time in my life. I have no idea who he was but when I meet him in heaven I will thank him for taking telling me about the greatest treasure. Because I heard and experienced the message of God’s grace I one day prayed to receive Jesus as my Lord, Savior and closest friend. Who can I tell today about the wonderful riches of knowing Him?

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
