Grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.


Grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
(2 Peter 3:18)

God in His grace has centered every blessing for us in Christ. Without Christ, we have nothing, nothing but our sins; with Christ we have all things, and therefore want nothing in addition to Christ. As the apostle says, “All are yours; and ye are Christ’s; and Christ is God’s” (1 Cor. 3:22-23). Hence the saying of an old writer, “If thou knowest not Christ, it matters not if thou knowest everything besides, but if thou knowest Christ, it matters not if thou knowest nothing besides.”
Now, it is not every believer who knows Christ. All believers – those, that is, who have peace with God-know Christ as their Saviour. They know Him in this character or relationship, but it is another thing to know Him in Himself, to have such knowledge of Him as to be intimately acquainted with His mind, character, and ways. Those who thus know Him find their daily delight in feasting on His beauties and perfections. They value Him for what He is, if possible, more than for what He has done, though these two things can never be separated. The apostle John indeed teaches that to know him who is from the beginning is the last and highest attainment the believer makes. This knowledge is the characteristic of the fathers in the family of God (1 Jn. 2:14).
Where then can I meet Christ and be in companionship with Him, so as to learn always more of Him? The answer to this question is that the only place where we can come into contact with Christ is in the written Word of God. We find Christ in every aspect, position, character, and office in the Scriptures-Christ in humiliation and rejection, and Christ in exaltation and glory. The more therefore I read and meditate on God’s word, the more I shall learn of Christ.

YOU CAN BE HIS WITNESS
Open Heavens

YOU CAN BE HIS WITNESS

As a bona fide member of the Kingdom of God, you must be a proof of His power to save. Matthew 1:21 says Jesus shall save His people from sin. 1 John 1:7 says His blood cleanses us from all sins. If the power to save was demonstrated in the life of anybody at all, it was in the life of Paul. In 1 Timothy 1:15...More

BEFORE YOU GET ANGRY

Yesterday we learnt it is not right for us to get angry with God or to take offence against Him, even if we experience the deferment of our hopes. The example of John the Baptist who earlier acknowledged Jesus as the Messiah, but later doubted Him because of his painful experience of incarceration is a warning...More
