What, How, Why know You?

“I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord”

Philippians 3:8 (NIV)

Paul was writing to his friends in Philipi. He tells them that he is consumed with‘knowing Christ’. WHAT did he mean by this? The amplified bible describes it well; “progressively becoming more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him [of perceiving and recognizing and understanding Him more fully and clearly]”.

HOW does this happen in our individual lives? I believe we need to treat God as a personal friend, as well as,…ah…God. Prayer is like talking with an intimate companion. The bible is God ‘s desperate attempt to make Himself known by us.

WHY? Blessing, fulfillment, to impact others, to better understand life and living it with inner peace and satisfaction.


Heavenly Father, help me to know You more. Teach me how to know You more. Fill me with the desire to know You more. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
