Getting to Know Jesus


by Sara Borgstede

I want to know Jesus.

For all my life, I’ve known about Jesus. Baptized as a baby, my parents took me to church every Sunday. I grew up knowing about Jesus from church, Sunday School, and Christian school. This foundational teaching is a blessing beyond measure.

Yet knowing about Jesus is so different from knowing Jesus.

I have read Bible stories.

I’ve memorized Scripture verses.

Yet do I have a personal, deep relationship with Jesus?

I remember when I first met my husband. We spent hours on the phone getting to know one another. (Remember, this was pre-email and we lived several states apart.) More than once, we spent all night on the phone, and this was when long-distance phone calls were expensive. I remember hearing my dad get up early for work, and I knew I was in big trouble because I was still on the phone from the night before!

I was willing to suffer the consequences of those phone all-nighters – falling asleep in class the next day, paying the huge phone bill, and getting in trouble with my parents, all because I craved getting to know this important new man in my life.

I wanted to know all the facts about my new boyfriend – what’s his favorite color? What toppings does he eat on his pizza? But even more, I wanted to know him. What are his hopes and dreams for the future? What are his deepest convictions?

In the same way, I desire that deep relationship with my Savior and Lord, Jesus.


Beginning January 2018 we will be using the book Getting to Know Jesus for a Sunday morning (10:15 am at St John) and online Bible Study (Facebook Group) led by Sara Borgstede

Check HERE for more information, schedule, how to join the online discussion.
