True knowl­edge of Christ comes from the Holy Spirit

Ac­cord­ing as His di­vine power hath given unto us all things that per­tain unto life and god­li­ness, through the knowl­edge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue: (2 Peter Ch.1 verse 3).

To read, study, write about, teach about, and preach about Je­sus is a won­der­ful thing. How­ever, the true knowl­edge of Him only hap­pens when the Holy Spirit gives to us, all the things of Je­sus Christ and then makes them real and mean­ing­ful to us. Je­sus was and is many in­nu­mer­able things, but be­fore any­thing else He was and is life and god­li­ness, and al­ways will be.

If Je­sus weren’t alive and life eter­nal, if He weren’t the supreme ex­am­ple of di­vine power and supreme ho­li­ness, then there would be no rea­son for His ex­is­tence. Yet, He is alive, alive from be­fore the be­gin­ning of any­thing, and He lives today that we might pos­sess the knowl­edge of Him in or­der to live a godly life down here, and share in His prom­ise of eter­nal life in the fu­ture. Chris­tians have a bright and glo­ri­ous fu­ture, you can be sure of it.

Now, be sure to tell that some­one on your prayer list that’s not so sure. I hope I have this week, but there’s still that one that won’t lis­ten.
