Knowledge doesn’t come until AFTER we get the first two things on our list: faith and character. We have to decide that we are going to know the things of God before we can know them. Our status is, thus, not dependent on our knowledge, but our knowledge comes from the character Jesus develops in us and it will tell us where to go from this point.
There are several knowledge types:
*Personal knowledge of an event (witness)
*Personal knowledge of another person
We need to move to the level of personal knowledge. Knowing Jesus, and Jesus alone was Paul’s aspiration set forth in Philippians 3:10.
When we know Jesus, then we also get to know God’s word and will and the things we should do. It is not the quantity of knowledge the is important, but the preciseness of it. This kind of knowledge can never be taken from us, and we can always benefit from it.
