Knowing Christ

If you could know anything in the world, what would you choose to know?

A lot of people want to know why: Why did God do this or allow that to happen?
Others want to know what makes something work: How does the space shuttle work?
Some want to know who is famous: If I could just meet LeBron or the Jonas Brothers…

But I love what the apostle Paul wrote in Philippians 3:10. He said that he wanted to “know [Christ], and the power of His resurrection.” There is certainly nothing wrong with knowing why, what, or who, but those things should pale in comparison to our desire to know Christ.

Paul was already a missionary when he penned that desire, which shows us that even mature believers should still desire to know Christ in a deeper way each day. If you don’t know Christ at all, I promise you will find that He is worth living your life for.

James 4:8 tells us that if we will draw close to God then God will draw close to us, so no matter how close you are to God today, keep taking steps towards Him, and He will take steps towards you.
