He is in Philippians 1: 9-11 .So using Paul’s prayer as a model. I want to use keywords in the passages as my focused prayer for my church peeps.

The word I want to focus on this morning is Knowledge ( vs. 9) and what it means to the people in the church and the church as a body.

My prayer is that we can represent Christ to people in a way that, only through Christ, by the means of the Holy Spirit can we have a knowledge of God that is sufficient for our salvation and that those attending our body that do not yet know that truth, will by the way we make Christ known.

Paul in Romans 1:18-21 says we can have a concept about God but the concept cannot save us, a saving knowledge can only be found in Christ. Jesus’s own knowledge of God enables Him to reveal God the Father to us, through the Holy Spirit.

The revelation of God, through Christ, with the Spirit takes place in God’s covenant to the local church, I pray today that we as a local church can make Jesus known to those we encounter and that people can know Christ through us.

We know that the knowledge of God includes more than intellect, it is an honest person seeking the truth, may we as a church point people to the knowledge of Solo Christo,Christ alone
