(Proverbs 4:13 HCSB)
What then gives me the guarantee of knowing Jesus? This is the question we ended with last time. From here on we proceed.
How do I know, you ask?
Some people are even too busy to listen. They don't want to hear anything that anybody have to say about God. They are convinced they know it all. What's the cause of that? I will tell you, it is pride and Ignorance. Scripture warns that pride always goes before destruction, and it is only an ignorant person who will reject knowledge. When we look at Mary, Scripture says she sat at the feet of Jesus Christ and further confirms that also she heard his word. Mary was humble enough to realize that she needed to hear whatever Jesus had to say. Jesus said it is "one thing" that is needful, that which Mary had chosen, which was to sit at the feet of Jesus and attentively hear His Word. I like what the Lord said further. He said “it shall not be taken away from her.”
Further Scripture Reading:
"For by reason of the time you ought to be teachers, ye have need again that someone teach you the rudiments of the first principle of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of solid food. For everyone that partaketh of milk is without experience of the words of righteousness; for he is babe. But solid food is for the full-grown men, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern good and evil"
12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,
13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;
14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting,
15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ—
