Grace for you today !
Knowledge of Christ Our Excellence!
“Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith;”
Philippians 3:8-9 NKJV
The true righteousness of God is found in Jesus Christ. No one can have right standing with God without Jesus. Paul, the Apostle was enlightened with this truth by the Holy Spirit. This truth applies to each one of us today. The knowledge of Jesus Christ alone makes us righteous in the sight of God. Such knowledge is revealed by the Holy Spirit and not acquired by any other means.
There is a huge difference between knowing Christ and knowing about Christ.
I may know about the Honourable President of this country through social media and by other means, yet I may not know him personally. If I know him personally, I will have access to him and it also gives me an identity and great privileges . So also , when the Holy Spirit reveals Christ to us in a personal way , we have an unshakeable identity and great authority and accordingly our prayer life is revolutionised .
My beloved , may the blessed Holy Spirit reveal Jesus to us and let that knowledge of Jesus Christ revolutionise our lives this week . Amen 🙏
