AColossians 2:2-3. My goal is that their hearts, having been knit together in love, may be encouraged, and that they may have all the riches that assurance brings in their understanding of the knowledge of the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

What is the goal of having knowledge?  It is to have the knowledge of the mystery of God.  This mystery is in Christ.  He was willing to leave His Father and humble Himself in the form of man to show us the mystery of God.  This mystery is a love we, in our sinful state cannot understand.  That makes our goal to learn to love.  God the Father, God the son (Jesus) and God the Holy Spirit are One.  It is their perfect love that makes them one.  This is really beyond our understanding but we can gradually gain knowledge of this love through the gift of the Holy Spirit as we learn to love God, ourselves and others.  Our question is are we willing to be less consumed with our own identities and learn to be knit together in love?
