The true knowledge of God
Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: but let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.
Lord God, I thank Thee for the gift of knowing Thee. Thou art a gracious, covenant-keeping redeemer, and the worth of knowing Thee far surpasses anything else I could set my heart on. Grant me fresh views of Thy glory in Christ to awaken me from spiritual slumber. As I pursue Christ by faith, continue to renew me in knowledge after Thy image. Grant me understanding through fearing and loving Thee. Make my knowledge of Thee bear fruit in all that is pleasing to Thee. I pray in Jesus’s name. Amen.
Knowing God and making Him known are the heartbeat of what it means to be human. Calvin asks in his catechism, “What is the chief end of human life?” He answers, “To know God.”
