To Know God; To Really Know God

Source Name: 
The God You Can Know (pg. 15)
Source Author: 
Dan DeHaan

It is important to “understand the difference between ‘knowing’ someone and really knowing someone. Paul spoke in Philippians of having the goal of knowing the Lord [Philippians 3:10]. I can assure you he already knew the Lord when he wrote the statement. He had been a Christian for thirty years. What could he have meant? Paul was aware that there was a higher plane of knowing the Lord, just as a husband and wife can know one another after thirty years of marriage. Paul was not speaking of a casual acquaintance or an ‘easy com, easy go’ relationship. With passion Paul pressed on to know God—and he knew God. Can we do less? Dare we do less?”
