Coming to Know Christ

But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
2 Peter 3:18 KJV
If you would be like Jesus know Him well
Through study of the scriptures every day,
And feel His spirit with you as you dwell
Upon the word of God and as you pray.
But words are merely symbols on a page
Until they come alive within the heart.
God's gifts of grace release them from their cage:
With faith and hope and love does grace impart.
The knowledge of our Lord and Savior grows
As all these gifts of grace mature and thrive.
You come to be more like Christ and it shows;
The things you say and do proves He's alive.
           In knowledge and in grace your soul implores,
           To Jesus be the glory evermore!

REMEMBER: Commit yourself to studying the scriptures daily if you desire to know Christ.
