“I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things!” Philippians 3:8
All true Christians know Christ, not with a mere theoretical knowledge, which may be obtained from books; but with a knowledge which the Holy Spirit works in the heart. We know Christ . . .
in the glory of His person,
also in the perfection of His work, and
in the riches of His wondrous grace.
We so know Christ, that He stands out before us as the chief among ten thousand, and the altogether lovely One. And the more we know Him, the more intimate we wish to become with Him!
We not only know Christ, but we need Him. And the longer we live, the more we need Him. Nor do we merely need Christ, but we need everything in Christ, or that Christ has. We need . . .
His blood to cleanse us,
His righteousness to clothe us,
and His Spirit to sanctify us.
We need Christ daily, hourly!
As we need Christ, so we come to Him.
Not once for all, but we continue to come.
We must come to Him . . .
in every trial,
and in every trouble,
in every conflict,
to unburden our minds,
and to find rest for our souls.
We come to Him . . .
and for strength,
Much of experimental religion consists in coming daily and hourly to Jesus.
