PASTOR'S CORNER by Rev. Angela Johnson I am preparing for a worship service at of the Egyptians. Now I know that the a jail thinking how I can share encour- LORD is greater than all other gods, for agement with the inmates today. This He did this when they treated Israel with thought came to me, When do you arrogance.' go from knowledge to knowing? How do you define the differ- ence? Knowledge and k-flowing are similar, but there is a difference. Knowing is something you kno from first hand - your experi- ence'. (Faith grown) Knowledge is other people knowing (reading the Word/Bible) that you gather. In other words, knowledge is the plain theory and knowing is the practical experience. ' I began to think about my rela- tionship with the Lord. I decided REV. ANG|LA JOHNSON to ask the inmates about their relationship with Him. Are you in a knowledge or a knowing relationship? As I was thinking about my own knowledge to knowing experience, I found two stories in the word of God. I will not share the book, chapter or verse of the Bible, but I will share the stories these two individuals gave about their knowledge to knowing journe) By the dues look it up and meditate on it and let me know if you have knowledge of God or a knowing relationship with God. First story: ]ethro dedared, "Blessed be the LORD, who has delivered you from the hand of the Egyptians and of Pharaoh, and who has rescued the people from the hand Second story: "Then Elijah took the child, brought him down from the upper room into the house, and gave him to his mother. "Look, your son is alive" Elijah declared. Then the woman said to Elijah, "Now I know that you are a man of God and that : the word of the LORD from your mouth is the truth:' What will it take, or has it taken, for you to go from knowledge to knowing? Was it an opening eta Red sea, or God raising your son from the dead? What was, or is, your knowledge to knowing moment? Today I pray this inspires you to think on this. And I pray you will become a knower of Jesus today :17ii ii i!ii :!!!! ;i i!il :ili! !ii ~ii! !i ii ii!iiii iilil iiii?
