Text: Ephesians 1:15-23
The knowledge of Christ can only be gotten through the revelation of the word which is sponsored and activated by the Spirit of Wisdom who is the Holy Spirit.
Apostle Paul’s prayer for the Ephesians reflected God’s highest desire for every believer in Christ. He prays that the Spirit might work in them in greater measure.
The reason for this increased measure of the Spirit’s impartation is that believers may receive more wisdom, a revelation in gaining knowledge concerning God’s redemptive purposes for present and future salvation, and experience a more abundant power of the Holy Spirit in their lives.
It is essential to note that the ‘natural’ man cannot know Him because this knowledge can only be discerned by someone who is spiritually active. (1corinthians 2:14)
To have this knowledge of Christ, we must believe in Him read ( Hebrew 11:6)
Moreover, for us to know Christ, we must be humble as He is, gentle and lowly in heart. Matthew 11:29. We must therefore be ready to learn from Him, putting aside what or who we are or think we are to gain this knowledge. Philadelphians 3:8. Without His knowledge, we are completely ready to be cheated by the devil
The Holy Spirit makes us lives and Spiritually active in order to gain the knowledge of Christ each day. He demands that we tune to Him every day for a continuous revelation of the Knowledge of Christ
Food For Thought
Seek God’s knowledge every day. It’s worth seeking.
