No one knows me, we think. People know my name, but not my heart. They know my face but not my feelings. I have a social security number, but not a soul mate. No one really knows me.
The response of heaven is that God does! Prophets weren’t enough. Apostles wouldn’t do and angels won’t suffice. God sent more than miracles and messages. He sent himself; he sent his Son.

He knows them better than you do. He knows their price because he paid it. “For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God” (1 Peter 3:18). God knows you!
