“…that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection of the dead.” Philippians 3:10.
O Lord God of Grace and Glory, we see the heartbeat of the Apostle Paul in his writings. He wanted above all else to know Christ more in his resurrection power and to understand more deeply the sufferings he endured for us. He also wanted to become more like him in his willingness to die for the cause of redemption.
That is our desire too – that we may know him – in all the dimensions of grace. We believe that we have already been given eternal life and that the resurrection from the dead is assured.
We pray for this person who thinks on these holy things. Give this one what the heart desires today. Our prayer is that in all things – we may know Christ.
