1 John

knowledge-maturity-perfection [2]

I write to you, fathers,
    Because you have known Him who is from the beginning.
I write to you, young men,
    Because you have overcome the wicked one.
I write to you, little children,
    Because you have known the Father.
14 I have written to you, fathers,
    Because you have known Him who is from the beginning.
I have written to you, young men,
    Because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you,
    And you have overcome the wicked one. [1 John 2:13-14]

It is the desire of our heavenly Father that all of us grow up into maturity and perfection in Christ. All of the Word of His Grace is singularly united in this effort…to build Christ into the children until they are babes no more but young men even fathers in the faith. Selah.

It is for this cause that we have received of the Holy Spirit, that we should be brought into a knowing of all that is ours in Christ! This I believe is the cardinal ministry of the Holy Spirit in our lives. He is with us in fellowship – to take our hand and lead us into the revelation and experience of all the realities we have to in Christ. Glory to God!

Let us remember that the essence of this heavenly calling is to know God. It was Jesus who said in John 17:3 that this is the life….to know God!

Our emphasis must be placed on knowing God. We must put the highest premium on our explorations into the depths of the Word of His Grace…we must keep the lofty position of revelation highest.

I burst with excitement whenever I read I Corinthians 2:12. …to know the things that are freely given us in Christ! Selah. O that we will explore the depths of all the oracles of God…O that we will be fully constituted with the truth…O that we will be well sophisticated into all the mysteries of Christ!

Selah
