Do you follow certain RS feeds, have email subscriptions to writers and thought-leaders? Me too. Here’s an excerpt from Brian Brooker’s Daily Word email I subscribe to:
“I got a phone call this morning from a dear friend of mine who lives near Orlando, Florida.
He made what I thought was an amazing comment. He said : I like your devotions best when you talk about yourself, because I know you and I want to get to know you better.” That’s what friendship is all about!. . . getting to know each other better.
If we can have this kind of passion to get to know each other better, then shouldn’t we also have the same passion to know our Savior deeply and personally ?
Christ Himself said that this was at the crux of eternal life, knowing “the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou (God) hast sent.”
That was also the heartbeat of the Apostle Paul. He wrote to the church at Philippi “I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:8
My friend took a few minutes out of his busy schedule first thing this morning to let me know he wanted to know me better. Should that not be the attitude of every believer? Let our prayer this morning simply that we might know Him”!”
