That I May Know Him

Phil 3:10 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death

ResurrectionTo know Him, is the primary pursuit of our life. Paul realized that the only thing that counted was knowing the Lord Jesus and following after Him.

To know the power of His resurrection is to know the Holy Spirit. Rom 8:11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

As we pursue knowing the Lord Jesus, and the Holy Spirit and His mission in our lives, all that we have received when we were raised from the dead with Jesus begins to manifest in and through our lives.  We begin to lay hold of that which Christ Jesus has bought and paid for us in His death, burial and resurrection.

Let us continually give thanks for our Lord Jesus.
Phil 3:12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.
