DAILY WORDS OF HOPE
BY PCG, HOPE CONGREGATION–SAK. EST
I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, Philippians 3:10
THEME: KNOWING CHRIST
WORDS OF HOPE:
There is a difference between ‘I want’ and ‘I need’. To ‘want’ something is an additional desire to something you need. Paul has gone beyond the critical stage where he needs Jesus, now he wants to know more about Him. Paul wants to know the power of His resurrection and to participate in His sufferings. Where do you stand: do you need Christ or you want to know more about Him? First give your life to Christ and as you walk with Him, you will know more about Him, your relationship with Him will grow and you will experience the new life He gives and if possible, to experience His suffering. At that time
Ø You will know Christ in a practical way
Ø You will begin to experience the power, freedom and joy
Ø You will have His attitude even in suffering.
Ponder on these things said by the Apostle Paul throughout the day.
· Pray that your knowledge about Christ will be personal.
· Pray for the grace to persevere in suffering.
· Pray to enjoy the freedom in the Lord.
I pray in the name of Jesus that God will cause you to know Him and to help you to persevere in suffering. Amen 🙏🏽
