KNOWING JESUS EXPERIMENTALLY
That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; (Php 3:10)
The Apostle Paul wrote these wonderful words after he had lived life in its fullness. He had built churches, had won many to Christ, and indeed he had written much of the New Testament. Yet, when he expresses the depths of his heart, you presently see an all controlling passion, “That I may know him”. My title is a little redundant. The only way to know Jesus Christ our Lord is experimentally. It is the experience of His wonderful life. Yes, you can know much about Him, and not personally, experimentally know Him. You can have such a mental conception of Him that it changes your life, and yet not know Him. All the false christian cults witness to this. Millions have studied His invaluable teaching, and been changed morally, but never knew Him. I can never remember doubting that the Bible was the Word of God,and that Jesus Christ is the only Saviour. After all, I was raised in the deep South, or the Bible Belt! But Oh, I did not know Him! Then one day I met Him. He became personal and real, in fact, became more real than anything else in my life. He became my life.
Please listen to the following audio sermon I preached on Knowing Jesus Experimentally. You won’t get it all at once. Search your heart. Do you know Jesus experimentally? If not, I desire that you will get to know Him right now. Whosoever shall call on the Name of Christ shall be saved!
