I have been reading Ephesians, the whole book, every day for my Life Transformation Group.
One thing that has hit me is the calling and the privilege of knowing Him. In Chapter 1, Paul prays for the saints, not the unbelievers, that they may know more of Him:
“that…God…may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe…”
It should not be our aim or our intention to be anything else except knowers of Him. We are not just believers in a system (Christianity), we are believers in Christ. And not just believers in Him, but knowers of Him, relationally, intimately. Paul desired and prayed that God would reveal more of Himself to the Christians in Ephesus, that they may know the hope and dwell on the riches they have been given, to think on his power. I am so thankful that I don’t just belong to a “Christian club” but I KNOW a Savior. It is my desire and prayer to know Him more and “be filled with all the fullness of God.”
