Knowing Christ

Verse of the Day: Philippians 3:10    

I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death          

There is a difference in knowing about someone and knowing someone and there is a difference between knowing what someone does and knowing who someone is. You may have known about Jesus all your life but until you seek Him with all of your heart you won’t really know Him as your personal Savior. You won’t have a personal relationship with Him until you start spending time with Him. The more time you spend with Him the more you will become like Him. Knowing the Bible is one thing but knowing the author is another.

Lord, thank You for Your Word that is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness. It is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path guiding me in the way I should go. Lord, I love You with all of my heart and my greatest desire is to have a personal relationship with You. I open my heart, soul and mind to You and invite You to be at the center of my life. Lord, help me to know You on a deeper level and to walk more closely with You. Amen

Pray for Believers and Unbelievers

Verse of the Day:  Ephesians 3:16-18          

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.

Just like the Apostle Paul prayed for the believers in Ephesus, we need to pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ so that they may be strengthened with power through the Holy Spirit. We also need to pray for our family, friends, even our enemies and the world in general so that they would come to know Jesus Christ our Savior and invite Him into their heart and experience His infinite love first hand. Pray that they would come to truly know the Lord, His grace, glory and how much He really does love them.

Lord, I’m so thankful for Your love and mercy. Your love is better than life itself. I pray that You would dwell in the hearts of my family and loved ones so that they would be able to experience Your love for themselves. You are so glorious, Lord, and I invite You into my life and into my heart. Amen

Verse of the Day:  John 17:3

And this is eternal life that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.

 

Do you know the Lord? Knowing who he is, is not enough.  Our goal in life should be to know Christ by having a deep and personal relationship with Him.  We need to make this our priority if we want to spend eternity in the presence of the Lord.
