That I may know Him.” Paul desired to know the Lord Jesus as deeply as a person could. Jesus desires that we know Him on a deep level as well. Where are you at in your “knowing” Jesus? Do you only know about Him based on knowledge? Do you know Him in a relationship? Or do you know Him in intimacy- as a husband and wife would know each other? This is the “knowing” that He desires for us to have. This was the “knowing” that Paul desired to have.
How Do You Know Him?
“That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;” ~Philippians 3:10
Jesus desires it so strongly that He died on the cross so that we could have this type of relationship with Him. He desires it so much that if we refuse it He will say to us on the day when we stand before Him, “Depart from Me, I never knew you”.
He offers you so much more than just a knowledge of Himself. He is offering you a relationship with Him, yet He is offering much more, He is offering you Himself. In essence, He is doing the same thing a man does when he proposes to a woman to marry him. Will you accept His offer?
Do you know Jesus? Do you know about Him, do you have a relationship with Him, or do you know Him intimately?
Have a great day in the presence of Jesus!
