All of us, as Christians, want to know our Lord better: “God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord” (I Corinthians 1:9). We are called into fellowship with Jesus Christ.
One good method of getting to know Jesus is studying His death on the Cross and His resurrection. We must be deeply conscious of this. It is in these two events that eternal life is found. To know Him is eternal life (2). When these two events and their effects are established in our minds, we can enter into a deep foundation and have the ability to adjust to the plan. This enables us to get to know Him. Then, no matter what happens, we are secure because we know what our existence relies on – the finished work and not ourselves.
We can fellowship with God through the Word and by thinking upon His finished work. “That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son, Jesus Christ” (I John 1:3). Through His Word, we can make knowing Him and the power of His resurrection our priority (3).
