That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death. Philippians 3:10
One day a friend and I were making a call on a businessman who’d had some sickness in his family. I said, “We’re downtown together—let’s go by and have some coffee with him.” This dear man of God began giving his testimony of how the Lord saved him. But then he said something that really shocked me. I was speechless. He said, “I used to believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross and that He was buried and rose again. But I don’t believe it anymore.”
I was stopped dead in my tracks. Then with a smile on his face he said, “I don’t believe it anymore. Now I know it!”
Oh, to go from believing to knowing the Savior! What a change of thought. What a change of heart. What a glorious revelation and transformation!
Do you know Him? Really know Him today? Or do you just believe that He died, was buried, and rose again?
