Knowing God. Not one thing will be more important in your life this week than knowing God. Not one opportunity will be available with greater potential for blessing than knowing God.
Just ask Peter.
May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. (2 Pet 1:2)
Therefore I intend always to remind you of these qualities, though you know them and are established in the truth that you have. (2 Pet 1:12)
His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises… (2 Pet 1:3-4)
For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge… (2 Pet 1:5)
For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. (2 Pet 1:8)
…they have escaped the defilements of the world through the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ… (2 Pet 2:20)
You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability. (2 Pet 3:17)
…grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen. (2 Pet 3:18)
Knowing God. When I know God, grace and peace are multiplied to me. I am established in the truth. I am granted all things that pertain to life and godliness. My faith and virtue are supplemented. I am kept from being ineffective or unfruitful in the service of my King. I am equipped to escape the defilements of the world. I avoid being carried away with the error of lawless people. I am stabilized. I grow in the grace of my Lord and Savior.
Not one thing will be more important in my life this week than knowing God. Not one opportunity will be available with greater potential for blessing.
Which begs the question on this Monday morning: what will I do this week to get to know him better?
