“. . . that I may know Him”

We recently returned from 3 1/2 weeks in Israel. I stood where Jesus would have surely walked on the south steps up to the Temple Mount. That was a moving experience, but to know Jesus more is not about physically walking where He walked. Paul writes in Philippians 3:9-10, “. . . and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith–that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death” (ESV). We enter a relationship with Jesus through believing that He is God who died for our sin and rose from the dead. We grow in that relationship, i.e., know Him more, by learning to yield to the Holy Spirit’s control in our lives. The power that raised Jesus from the dead is available to empower you and me to live our lives in a way that pleases Him.
