After 30 years working in an electric generating station, where i worked as an operator learning and using equipments to produce or generate electricty, reaching a position where i was responsible for the units producing 700 megawatts. I did my best at work , thanks also to my co workers.After i retired i realized i did not pay attention much to how electricity is supplied to my house. Yes i know there is main electrical panel, switches , receptacles, outlets,lights but i did not pay attention to the wires inside the wall, how they are connected , etc, etc ?
What is my point ? We could be calling ourselves Christian all our life, belonging even to biggest denomination but we do not really know Jesus,we do not experience Him, we are not intimate with Him, we do not spend quality time with Him.
By the way now I am studying how electricity travels in my own house, how things are wired in a safe manner, learning what i could just to understand how it is wired at home.
I believe this is the same with us and Jesus. We need to get to really know Him before we leave this earth. Because we want to hear " well done my good and faithful servant, enter into My rest" and we do not want to hear " I never knew you, depart from Me."
