There is a powerful desire that can liberate your heart, unveil your destiny and fill you with spiritual pleasure…
It’s a powerful longing… a holy obsession… it’s the ultimate desire!
There is no aspect of God’s grace that can more powerfully transform your emotions and satisfy your soul than when the Holy Spirit reveals God to your spirit.
The most transforming and exhilarating reality in the kingdom of God is the person of Jesus Himself.
The Excellence of Knowing Him
What if you could see what the Paul saw during his conversion? If you could see what the apostle saw you might be able to live like he lived.
Paul gave up everything after he encountered the majestic splendor of Jesus—it became the supreme obsession of his life.
I count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus… (Phil. 3:8)
The primary battlefront of the kingdom of God is the truth about Jesus. That’s why the editor of this article intends to write about the Jesus of the Bible, not the counterfeit “Jesus of this age”.
It’s shocking! You probably noticed, how “another Jesus” is preached today. It is a Jesus after our own image a domesticated God that twisted minds can manage.
A Jesus who makes no demands on our time, money, words, social life and sexuality (2 Cor. 11:4).
If we are to stop this deception we need to recover the truth of who He is.
We need to fall in love with Jesus all over again—the real Jesus—the glorious God-Man who went to the cross, rose from the death and will soon return.
Knowing Christ is the most pleasurable reality you can experience. Yet, the most costly treasure you will ever pursue (but the most valuable and lasting one).
