Weekly blessing from the opening line of Philippians 3:10,

"May you know Christ and the power of his resurrection."

Let me just say there is a big difference between merely knowing of Christ and knowing Christ. I spent 18 years of my life merely knowing of Christ. My life changed the day I began to know Christ. To know Christ is relational and experiential. To know Christ is also personal and intimate.

When you know Christ you begin to experience the power of the resurrection. If you did not know this ... there is POWER in the resurrection. It is a power that moves from death to eternal life. It is a power that moves from routine to abounding joy. If you think you know Christ but have not experienced POWER ... then you merely know of Christ.

Enjoy knowing Christ this week,

Pastor Jeff Gravens
