Do I Know Him?

          My son Carter has been asking me questions that are keeping me on my toes. Usually he asks me right before he goes to sleep after we have read a Bible story.  I am going to do a few Victory Calls on these questions. 

          The first question he asked was, “Mom, do I know Him?”    “Well,” I said, “if you have asked Jesus into your heart then He lives inside you.” But then I realized that doesn’t really answer his question, does it? 

          How do you get to know someone?  Well, spending time with them is a must. Even if you live with someone you may not really know them unless you take the time to study them.  We have to want to get to know him. There is a powerful song called “I Want to Know Christ” by Larnell Harris.  Here is the chorus but if you have the chance, listen to it on YouTube.  

I want to know Christ
I keep Him before me
I lift up my eyes
I drink in His glory
I press toward the goal
His goodness unfolds
March on, oh my soul
I want to know
I want to know Christ

          “That I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death”  Philippians 3:10 ESV.
