KNOWING AND BEING kNOWN

September 20, 2020

Text: Psalm 139

 

Knowing God

      So let us know, let us press on to know the Lord.
         His going forth is as certain as the dawn;  (Hosea 6:3)

 

Footnotes:
I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value
of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, …so that I may gain Christ,
 … that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection
and the fellowship of His sufferings, (Philippians 3:7-8)

“This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true
God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.  (John 17:3)

 

Knowing God is…

      Our highest pursuit

      Our salvation

      Our created purpose

 

Being Known is…

      He knows what you do

      He knows what you think

      He knows where you go

      He knows how and why you do what you do

      He knows everything you say (and even what you think about saying)

      He knows your form, capabilities and limitations

      He knows the number of your days

 

And yet…

      God demonstrates His own love toward us,

in that while we were sinners, Christ died for us.

                                Romans 5:8

 

Footnotes:

We cannot escape His presence: He is always with us

You cannot escape His power: His hand is upon us

You cannot escape His providence:  He is always caring for us

 

Knowing Him and Being Known

      FULFILLS OUR CREATED PURPOSE

 

      REVEALS GLORY AND WONDERS

      BEYOND OUR COMPREHENSION

 

      BIRTHS A ZEAL FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS AND HOLINESS

 

      PRODUCES HUMILITY AND SINCERE SUBMISSION IN US

 

                                    Do you know Him

                                              and

                                       are you known?
