The simple message stood out as I entered the sanctuary for a friend’s funeral, for it was both humbling and captivating. Hanging prominently at the front and made up of only a few words, it said:
KNOW WHOM YOU STAND BEFORE
The “WHOM” in that message was, of course, God. It is God before whom we stand each day of our lives. And it will be God before whom we stand when our days on this earth cease to be. What a difference it would make if we would be diligent in remembering these few words as we make our way through this life.
All Scripture points us to whom we stand before so that we can know our Lord better and grow closer to His likeness. The more we truly know God, the more we long to know Him because we were created to be fulfilled by our relationship with Him. And what a beautiful relationship it can be.
There is much to know about our Lord. Keep studying the Bible and see how God reveals Himself to you.
