LONGING TO KNOW JESUS?


 

Today’s Reading:

Philippians 3:1-21

That I may know Him, and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death,” (v. 10)

 


The text of today should be an awe–inspiring experience for any believer. Just as a father on his deathbed would share deep secrets with his Children, Christ’s declaration about himself came to His disciples at the very end of His assignment here on earth (John 13:1). He knew that His disciples had a limited understanding of who He really was, and so He chose that moment to reveal Himself to them fully. His divinity, His humanity, the reason why He came, His relationship with the Father, where He’s going (destination), power and status thereafter are all made known (revealed) to us in the Scripture. It is a privilege to have a revelation of who Jesus really is. To enjoy the fullness of the divine nature you possess as a Christian and to finish your race here on earth in flying colours, you need to have an intimate and personal relationship with the Master, Jesus. However, you cannot have an intimate and personal relationship with the Lord without first having received a revelation of His person in your spirit. Apostle Paul was very Unique as a Christian because his knowledge of the Lord was based on divine revelation of the person of Jesus Christ. Hear what he wrote in his letter to the brethren in Galatia, in Galatians 1:11-12.


“But I make know to you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by 0me is not according to man . For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through the revelation of Jesus Christ”.

While it is good for you to be taught about the Lord, you cannot know Him intimately unless you received a personal revelation of His person in your spirit. This is so important to make you genuinely grounded as a Christian. For this reason, Apostle Paul prayed this prayer for the Immature Christians at Ephesus in Ephesians 1:17 -. That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him”.


Jesus revealed Himself to the disciples because they had proven their love for Him by accepting His call and walking with Him while He was here on earth. Today, it is those who show their love for Him by spending time with Him in the place of worship and meditating on His word that He will reveal Himself to (John 14:23). Beloved, do you really know Jesus Christ? Have you caught a revelation of who He is in your spirit?


Who is He to you? Is He a prophet, a great Teacher, a miracle Worker, great Healer, your Saviour from Sin and the gateway to heaven? Jesus Christ is all of these and even much more, but above all, He is the Son of the living God and the Saviour of mankind. Seek to know Him from this moment. Show your love for Him by spending time with Him, and he will give you a personal revelation of who He really is.
