Take some time to stir your heart in the knowledge of God.
And this is eternal life,
that they know you the only true God,
and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. - John 17:3
Eternal life is knowing God. Our desire to know God defines the measure to which we truly live. We must long to know God.
Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation—[because] you have tasted that the Lord is good. - 1 Peter 2:2-3
To know God is to know His character, to know what He desires, to know His will. All of these evident are within the scripture:
God is unchanging.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. - Hebrews 13:8
God is holy.
Exalt the Lord our God, and worship at his holy mountain;
for the Lord our God is holy! - Psalm 99:9
God is love.
Anyone who does not love does not know God,
because God is love. - 1 John 4:8
God desires that all men be saved.
[God] desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men,
the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, - 1 Timothy 2:4-6
God is a redeemer.
For your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is his name;
and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer,
the God of the whole earth he is called. - Isaiah 54:5
God is compassionate.
When [Jesus] saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” - Matthew 9:36-38
God is worthy of praise.
“Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.” - Revelation 4:11
- Pray we would know God and worship Him for who He is.
- Pray that God would give you a greater revelation of His character, desires, and will this week.
- Pray that we would find opportunities to share the knowledge of God with others.
- Pray for a friend to know and experience Jesus.
