I want to know Christ–yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death. ( Philippians 3 : 10 ).
I want to know Him. I want to become like Him in anything. Here Paul saying i preferred to loos anything and gain the Christ. I want to know who He is. I want to know who he is which really changed me inside out. I’ve never had this experience before. It seemed impossible for me to change .My eyes was closed , to regulations and the law surrendered me. I was seeing the things through the lanes of this world not Him. I want to know that person which shifted my prospective.
By knowing Christ , your prospective , your inner being will be shaped in a positive way . Somehow you will be a new creation . I want to know Him because He lift me up and will show me who I am in Him.
The power of His resurrection somehow will resurrect me from my death. The power of His resurrection will make me alive. The power of His resurrection will heal me . I gain eternal life , I pass a face of shame and condemnation to reach His glory . I’ll be like Him.
Paul is saying because he was longing to know Christ. He was longing to become a person like His master. Who is your master today? . The master I am introducing is not from this world although He came and died for me and you, but He overcame the world. Yes , this is the beginning of our journey. The journey is the destination and the process is the goal.
Sometimes we need to be like a baby to know Him
I wan to know Him , whom loved me and loving and caring me everyday . His hands are powerful and His mighty power above all. Can you tell Him today from your heart , that I want to know you Jesus?.
Pauls is writing to Philippians church , a church which he established in His second missionary journey (52AD). Remember God sent Paul by a vision to Philippi. So this city needed to know Christ. The Sin has broken our relationship with our creator , that’s why God sent His only son to heal this and to offer us eternal life. Now we have chance to know Him. Now we have this opportunity to open door for Him to coming in our hearts. Jesus says I sand behind the door and knock whoever open the door, i will come in and have dinner with Him. Do you want to know Him? Have dinner with Him, open up your heart for Him, He is ready to know You but where are you?
You need to take step , God doesn’t force you because He created you with a free-will. He does NOT want bad and ugly things for you, He is for you. Yes sometimes we need to turn back to His arms , He will give us some signs . He is your Father , Your heavenly Father, You are an apple in His eyes. Do not let your past , present and future stop you to know Him.
The most amazing thing you can possibly do is ‘to know Him’.
God is ready .
Wanna be freed ? know Him
Wanna be healed? know Him
I’d like to offer this song of mine to all of you:
I wanna know you
I long to see you
Show me your glory
Show me your mercy
Love .. Joy..Patience .. will be mine
I wanna be like you- Open my eyes
I wanna be YOU- open my heart.
