Think about the most famous or intriguing person you have met or had the opportunity to talk to or be in the presence of? What stood out about them? What made you want to know them more?
I have been to Washington D.C. many times and each time has intrigued me more. Just being in that city and learning more about the history of our country and the leaders that made it great makes me hungry to know more.
With all the advancements of technology and all the knowledge at our fingertips, there is one Person that we will never fully know. One Person that should always excite us about knowing more. And He is Jesus Christ.
II Peter 1:2-4 talks about how knowing God more brings amazing benefits that go beyond our imagination.
One benefit of knowing God more is that He provides us with everything we need for life. Whenever life throws us a curve, we can just turn to God who will be there for us and get us back on track.
Another benefit of knowing God is knowing His promises. And Christ ALWAYS keeps His promises. No person is more reliable and more dependable than Jesus Christ. His promises are always true and He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
A final benefit of knowing God is that our sin and our mistakes will not control and ruin our lives. Verse 4 says that by knowing God we can escape the corruption that is in the world. What more could we want than to have the assurance that the more we know God, the more we can be confident that our mistakes will not make our future. Our past life does not have to be our present life. We can live each day in victory.
As you take on today and this week, continue to learn more about God. Never get lazy. Always make time for God. Never become apathetic about getting into His Word. There is a goldmine waiting to be discovered. And it will change your life.
