Discipleship – Knowing God

If you are like me, I often feel that I am not progressing with God if I am not “doing” things for God.

I came across a passage in the bible a few years ago that I found to be quite insightful. That passage highlights that the life worth living focuses more on knowing God, rather than just “doing” things for God. Jesus said in John 17:3, “Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.” Apostle Paul, whom God used to write over a third of the new testament, stated in Philippians 3:10, “I want to know Christ–yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death”. His aim in life was knowing God.

Let’s re-align our primary focus as believers to knowing God, even as we do our bit to extend the kingdom and the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
