Ignorance is NOT bliss!
God declares that HIS people are destroyed for ignorance, or their lack of knowledge (see Hosea 4:6) (Note: NOT because it is God’s will).
Ignorance has its roots in the word, “ignore.” It is not foolish to be ignorant, but it is foolish to remain ignorant. Proverbs 13:13 states that; “Whoso despiseth the Word shall be destroyed…” One of the Hebrew definitions for “despiseth” in this verse is, “to hold as insignificant.”
Wow! We are commanded to “grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ (2 Peter 3:18).
Why? Because, “grace and peace are multiplied unto us, through this amazing knowledge and understanding of Him, and His love for us.”(See 2 Peter 1:2; 1 John 4:8, 16)
So, choose to know Him, and you will grow up in Him, and it WILL show up through you, in a blessed life of grace growth (See 1 Timothy 4:15). Choose Life (see Deuteronomy 30:19; John 14:6). The choice is yours.
