I Want to Know Christ
Topic: Philippians Passage: Philippians 3:10–3:11
Paul has spoken of his initial faith in Christ. He now speaks of the goal of Christian living. Paul wanted to “know” Jesus. As he writes about his desire, the nature of that knowledge is plain. First, it is to be experiential. Second, it is to be a knowledge of God’s power. Third, it is to be learned in suffering. Fourth, it is to result in a life that is a preview of the life of eternity.
• Knowing God
2. In His power
3. The fellowship of His suffering
