As a child, church to me was more a Sunday ritual than a meaningful experience. I didn’t mind going to church with my parents, most of the time. I heard stories about the miracles of God and the teachings of Jesus. I knew a lot about God, but I didn’t really know Him. It was a lot like knowing the prime minister of Canada from what you read in the news as opposed to being good friends with him.
And then when I was 11 years old something happened. I went from knowing a lot about God, to knowing God as a real… well, person. Before that, Jesus was someone who influenced my life from the outside, but now He was someone who was influencing my life from the inside out. Changing the way I look at life. Changing the way I make decisions. Changing what I want to do with my life.
I suspect that there are a lot of people who know about God. Maybe you are one of them. You’ve been to church at Christmas, Easter or for a wedding. You have heard the name of God, but like me, He doesn’t seem all that real.
But He is. That is what we are all about at All Nations Church Phuket. Helping people get beyond knowing about God, to really knowing God.
Why would you want to know God? Because life is just better when you do. You have peace when you should be anxious. You have hope when you should feel despair. You have strength when feel helpless. You have purpose when you lack direction. Knowing God simply makes life better.
We invite you to come and know Him.
