Knowing Versus Doing
I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection.... - Philippians 3:10

If I asked you the purpose for which God made you, what might you say?
You might give a lot of answers that require some action on your part.
However, the simplest answer to that question relates to one primary thing: fellowship. The most important thing God desires from us today is to have a deep and intimate fellowship with each of us.

The apostle Paul said he wanted to know Christ, and by knowing Christ he could experience the power of His resurrection. A connection made. Salvation received.
To know Christ means to be in intimate union with Him.
(See devotion #8 “Know God”)
So often it is much easier to be busy with the urgent (or even Christian) activity than spending quiet moments with the Lord.
Before we realize it, days have passed since our last quiet time with Jesus.

Jesus understood how important quiet moments were with the Father.
"After He had dismissed them, He went up on a mountainside by Himself to pray. When evening came, He was there alone" (Mt. 14:23).
Jesus was demonstrating the proper attitude that we should have, and live by.
We must take time to reflect, to share our concerns with the Lord, and to hear Him speak.
Be still and know that I am God” (Psalms 46:10)
We should understand that Jesus views us as His friend.
He wants to spend time with us.
We are depriving Him of His time when we put Him aside for the urgent.
When we make prayer a priority, urgent things seem to wane as we focus on Him.
He makes all these other things fall into place.
Try taking a walk with Him. To pray, fellowship, and exercise.
I’ve been trying this.
Maybe you should too.

Are you taking the time to get to know Him today?
