Philippians 3:10. My aim is to know him, to experience the power of his resurrection, to share in his sufferings, and to be like him in his death,

To know Jesus means not just to know and accept the facts of Who He is and how He walked this earth. To know includes experiencing Him through our walk on this earth. We are to experience the power of His resurrection which experiencing His power over sin. We are to share in His sufferings. How often we complain when we feel mistreated or unappreciated, yet He didn’t open His mouth at His own defense. We are to be like Him in His death; be willing to face wherever He leads us and whatever He asks us to do in the confidence that physical death is not a threat for we who have Jesus as our Lord already have begun our eternal life with God. Our question is how are we doing? If you’re with me you can only join me in saying “ouch,” help mr Holy Spirit to really know my Lord.
