Does Everyone We Know Understand Who Jesus Is and What He Has Done For humanity?

“Come to your senses and stop sinning; for some people are ignorant about God. I say this to your shame….. Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the Lord’s work, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:34, 58 CSB


Does everyone we know believe in God? Most of us would quickly answer yes. We answer yes, probably because we don’t want to press into the idea that people we know may not know God. But can’t God be known through observation, the complexity of the universe crying out that God is and that He has made us all? Doesn’t our conscience declare that there must be a God for right and wrong to exist and that Someone must execute justice? Indeed, these things reveal God, but they don’t reveal Jesus, God manifest as one of us so that we can be reconciled to God and know Him personally even as we are personally known. This is the work of the Christian. The mission of every Christian is the Great Commission. We are to excel at the Lord’s work, always laboring to see others know Jesus and obey His commands even as we are doing. We must not assume our family and friends know about God. We must specifically inquire about their relationship with Jesus, for there is no other name under heaven by which people can be saved and live forever with God. The ministry of reconciliation has been given to us as Christians. The world reflects the fruitfulness of our work, and that fruitfulness reflects our faithfulness in doing that work.
