Things That Come From Knowledge


"But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory forever and ever. Amen" (2 Peter 3: 18).

With the internet age upon us, so much knowledge is available. Researching is so much easier and encyclopedias have become obsolete. The knowledge that I will talk about for the next few days can be found on the internet, but I choose to use the Bible. The apostle Peter begins and ends his second epistle writing about knowledge. "Grace and peace be yours be your in abundance through the knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord" (1: 2). The KJV says that this grace and peace are "multiplied" through this knowledge. He says that both grace and peace can be ours, and that it comes through the knowledge of God and Jesus.....IN ABUNDANCE! Now Jesus himself told us that to an extent, all men receive some of this grace and peace. After teaching us to love our enemies and praying for those who persecute us he says; "He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous" ( Matt. 5: 45). I don't know about you, but I want more than the sun and the rain! Enter Jesus our Lord..."Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms, with every spiritual blessing in Christ" (Eph. 3:1).

To those in Christ the fullness of God's favor is there for us. This fullness includes the real grace and peace of our Lord. Why? Because His grace and peace is multiplied....His grace and peace we can have in abundance.. It all begins when we acquire the knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord. The knowledge of Jesus is the key. We can only enjoy the real blessings as we come to know our Lord. It is then that we can take on Christ-like qualities and have the joy of grace and peace through Him...

Have a wonderful beginning to your week...Starting it with a RAK or two would be good... Love mark Phil. 4:11
