They say "I know Jesus" Do they?

How many the times of contemplating His voice, how it might sound, who is most likely to receive, would be like trying to capture wind in all it’s unusual means. But to boil it down to try and make out the various ways He speaks to us isn’t quite as important as it is to know this comes only from His care for us.

 
However much we hear, however much we know; we run with Him. For our foe is near to offset, the Devil does ever seek to work ruin for our lives all too familiar as it was to the Apostles too and their knowing His care,
 
“You were running well; who hindered you from obeying the truth?”
(Galatians 5:7)
 
“For we are not unaware of his schemes.”
(2 Corinthians 2:11)​
 
What a beautiful passage it is when He said of His care,
 
"If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them wanders away, what will he do? Won't he leave the ninety-nine others on the hills and go out to search for the one that is lost? And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he will rejoice over it more than over the ninety-nine that didn’t wander away! In the same way, it is not my heavenly Father’s will that even one of these little ones should perish.” – Jesus
(Matthew 18:12-14)​
 
What an astounding invitation to the care of rejoicing with heaven,
 
“Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!”
(Luke 15:6)​
 
As all the flock of God comes to know the very depth of His care,
 
“, , not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith, that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death”
(Philippians 3:9,10)
 
“And if we are children, then we are heirs: heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ--if indeed we suffer with Him, so that we may also be glorified with Him.”
(Romans 8:17)​
 
“For just as the sufferings of Christ overflow to us, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.”
(2 Corinthians 1:5)
 
‘, , until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God, as we mature to the full measure of the stature of Christ.”
(Ephesians 4:13)
 
“But rejoice that you share in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed at the revelation of His glory.”
(1 Peter 4:13)​
