YOU NEED TO LEARN CHRIST
“According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertains unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue”
2 Peter 1:3
LIGHT FOR THE NOW: God is not known in the senses neither is he known by feelings.
The Bible in Ephesians 1:3 says that God has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Also, 1 Corinthians 3:21 declare, “All things are yours”. This is to prove that everything we need to live the good life here on earth has already been provided by God. But there is a condition attached. The latter part of our text for today points out this very important condition: it’s about your knowledge of Him. There is nothing we could ever need to live a good victorious life here on earth that is not already ours in Christ. However, making it a reality is a function of our knowledge of Him. This kind of knowledge is the full, exact knowledge which is translated in Greek, ‘epignosis’. God’s provisions for your life aren’t going to become a reality in your life simply because they are written in the Bible or because you sing it in a song that Abraham’s blessings are yours. There is a knowledge of Him you must have, a knowledge that unites the knower with that which is known; a knowledge beyond the senses, specific, precise and accurate knowledge without assumptions nor feelings. God is not known in the senses nor is he known by feelings.
When you know Christ, you do not just get to know and be able to appropriate all that He has given to you, you also get to know yourself. God’s Word mirrors you. The more you know Him, the more you also get to know yourself. You can never really know yourself as God knows you unless you know Him. He is the One who made you and therefore knows what is deposited inside of you and what you are capable of. He alone can reveal you to yourself. Therefore, the way to know Him and get to discover yourself is to study and meditate on the Word. 2 Corinthians 3:18 shows that God’s Word is a mirror that reveals your true nature. It says, “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord”.
INSTRUCTION: Search and discover who you really are by looking into the mirror of God’s Word and getting to know the Lord.
PRAYER: I am what the Word says I am I have what the Word says I have, in Jesus Name. Amen!!
QUOTE: You are a product of resurrection.
