More About Jesus Would I Know

By John BJ Hall

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen. 2 Peter 3:18


The songwriter, Eliza Hewitt, had a spinal condition that put her in a body cast for most of her adult life. This song openly and shamelessly expresses a desire to be closer to her Savior. She did not allow her malady to stand between her and the Lord. She was a Christian in love with her God.

 In Philippians 3:10, Paul says,” That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death.” 
This should be our passion, our pursuit in life. To know the King of kings and Lord of lords, our Savior, and our God, is our highest aspiration. To know Him more is to Love Him more. To love Him is to serve Him. “More of His grace to others show.” 
That is our true purpose in life as Christians. 
Father, teach me more about Jesus. Show me Your Son as You see Him. I want to be more like Him as I go through life. Help me to hear His voice in every line of Your Word. Amen.
