KNOWING AND BEING kNOWN

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?
