Acquiring Knowledge

“For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered
for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps” (1 Peter 2:21 )

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as
of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth” (John 1:14 ).

One way to obtain knowledge
about something or somebody is through personal observation. John the Beloved
was part of the trio that accompanied Jesus to special ministry assignments. He
was with Him at the Mount of Transfigurationand he saw the Lord in glory. He
observed Him carefully and diligently to the point that he became the closest
disciple of the Lord. If you observe Jesus from scriptural accounts about Him,
it will definitely show. If you pay attention to the life and times of Jesus,
it will be easy to notice how He responded to temptations,trials, accusations,
mob actions, pressing ministry demands, the poor and therich, situations of
lack and inadequacies, betrayal, friends and foes, His father, civic duties,
etc. so that you can correctly imitate Him by following His steps

“For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us
an example, that ye should follow his steps” (1 Peter 2:21 ). Why is it that the lives of many
believers, church leaders and workers still contradict the lifestyle of Jesus
which the above scripture says has been left for us to follow? It is simply
because they are looking, reading and studying without observing. There is no
way you will approach the Word of God as a researcher ready to observe
phenomena, unravel and discover trends and events without coming out with
something valuable.

Another way of acquiring knowledge is by association. An example of this is through
marriage. Genesis 4:1 says Adam knew his wife Eve. This was an
intimate relationship was been designed by God for confines of wedlock only.
Marriage provides a basis for intimate knowledge. John 15:15 also talks of intimate communication existing
between Jesus and His disciples. The extent to which Jesus can share mysteries
with you depends on the level of intimacy you share.Many Christians envy those
who have privileged divine information whereas they are not prepared to work on
their relationship with the Master. The Lord has already taken the step. It is
for you to reciprocate by drawing near to Him and He will yet draw closer to
you. Every gap between you and the Lord translates to the withdrawal of vital
information from you. Bridge the gap today!
