Know Him and Make Him Known ~ Sunday Devotional

Our purpose in life is to know God and to make Him known.

That’s it. Period.

“He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him.” John 1:10-11 (NIV)

How do we know Him and make Him known?

The first part is pretty straightforward. Get to know God.

Surrender your life to Him.

Spend time with Him.

The second part: make Him known.

That’s where our unique gifts and talents come in. That’s the part where we acknowledge where He’s placed us…our family, our job, our community…and how we can share His love as we show up in those places.

Because this space is about faith and fitness, I have to remind you (a lesson that took many years for me to learn) that losing weight is not God’s purpose for you.

I used to get up in the morning with one goal: What can I do today that will result in weight loss?

Now I get up saying “this is the day the Lord has made…” and then proceed to show up in a way that will honor Him.

We need to get up asking “How can I know God more?” and “How can I make Him known in my corner of the world? In my circle of influence?”

If you don’t yet know Him, today is a good day to do that. He’s knocking on the door of your heart waiting for you to answer so you can get to know Him.

If you do know Him, then how can you share His love with someone today?

Happy Sunday!
