TEXT: THAT I MAY KNOW HIM AND THE POWER OF HIS RESURRECTION, AND THE FELLOWSHIP OF HIS SUFFERING, BEING COMFORMED TO HIS DEATH.(Philippians 3:10)
We humans are born with a desire to have intimate relationship with God our creator, but this close relationship doesn’t happen all by its self in our lives. No rather, intimacy comes from dependence and dependence comes from faith and trust in God. It is unfortunate that whereas every human experiences a deep yearning in the heart for the true meaning of life at one time or the other, this thirst for God in the heart of many people is often misdirected in search of other mundane things.
Many not having the understanding of the workings of their hearts and how to respond when their heart begins to pant after it’s maker have rather, deviced their ways of satisfying that craving of the heart and that is why we have so many religions and creeds(man’s attempts to reach and know God) in the world today.
Intimacy with God is His highest priority for every man. And intimacy begins with knowing Him. The more deeply we know Him, the more fully we can love Him, and the more fully we love Him, the more freely and completely we can serve Him. This is what life is really about – to know God as deeply as we possibly can. That is the real essence of our creation. He created us like Himself so we might know what He is like and know what He wants. The Apostle Paul echos this when he said that his life’s goal was to know God through Jesus christ (Philippians 3: 8 – 10) This is what God desires from you too. He wants your priority to be knowing and enjoying Him as your friend and lover.
The life and legacy of the Apostle Paul has become so impactful for all times in christiandom, blessing life’s, even as he alone was able to write more than two third of the New Testament of the Bible because of the numerous revelations he had from his intimate relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
Jesus has come to rescue and redeem mankind back into intimate relationship with God, even with all who hitherto rejected Him. It is the knowledge of God gained through intimate relationship with Jesus Christ that is the best thing that can happen in your life bringing more joy, peace, delight fulfillment and contentment. Every other things that man pursues can satisfy man only for a while, if at all. Hence, the need for you to receive Jesus Christ as your saviour and Lord today to begin to experience the freedom and fulfillment that only an intimate relationship with Him can give you. The blessing of the Lord will come upon your your life as you take that critical step.
