Do you know Him?

Posted: July 9, 2013 in Shared Thoughts


This is a sermon reading by a gentleman  that delivers this sermon in amazing similarity which one would expect Charles Spurgeon to have delivered it himself. Close your eyes and you can easily imagine yourself being there at the Metropolitan Tabernacle before the Prince of Preachers as he would have passionately reasoned with his congregations the depths of this great passage. It is this yearning that spurred the Apostle ever forward through the various trials of being beaten with rods, once was stoned, three times suffering shipwreck, a night and a day stranded in deep open waters, in hazards of robbers, in perils his own countrymen, constant threats from the heathen, suffering often weariness and painfulness, through many a sleepless night often in hunger and thirst, often when exposed to cold and nakednessfrequently giving himself to times of long fastings in yearning desire for even  more . . . 

More what? Why was Paul willing to endure such? What was it that drove him continually forward through such hazards with unfaltering determination?

Philippians 3:8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, 9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: 10 That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death; 11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

Do You Know Him.
