Are You Growing in Knowledge of Him?

Rev. Bonnie Osteen shared a message from Psalm 139:1-6 this past Sunday.

O Lord, you have searched me and known me!
Psalm 139:1 ESV
God knows everything about us.
Make that statement personal: God knows everything about me!
He is a personal God who understands you better than you do. And He also longs for you and me to know Him.
Pastor Bonnie asked…
What does it mean to grow in the knowledge of Jesus Christ?

I believe growing in the knowledge of Jesus Christ begins with desire. A desire for revelation of Him.
He calls us to search out who He is, digging for knowledge like treasure, mining it out of His Word, prayerfully asking for understanding.
My son, if you receive my words and treasure up my commandments with you,
making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding;
yes, if you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding,
if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures,
then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.
Proverbs 2:1-5 ESV
Do you desire to know Him as much as you might desire a treasure?
Are you willing to do the work required to dig, finding small nugget after small nugget of truth, until you have a wealth of knowledge of Jesus?

Wanting to know Him leads to the pursuit of Him through prayer and study of Scripture.
The benefits of knowing Him are infinite… just like Him.
The more we grow in our knowledge of Jesus, the more we know His love. The more we know His love for us, the more we love others.
Our transformation begins when we desire Him.
He knows each one of us perfectly. Perhaps He knows us so well because He loves us so much.
Strive to love Him as well, seek to attain perfect knowledge of Him. 
I believe the more He reveals Himself to you, the more of Him you will want to know.
Are you growing in knowledge of Him?

Maybe it’s time we ask Him to grow us to love Him with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength, so we will desire to know Him more.
