Phil 3:10 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death,
DL Moody once stated: "God did not give us His word to make us smarter but so it will change our lives. The word "know" is gonosko, an experiential knowledge of Christ. There is nothing wrong with the academia learning with books, classes, so on, yet one must get into the hands on, practical understandings of Christ. Hearing the word and then applying the word by doing it. Trusting in the word of God. This is a must in every natural vocation known to man so how much more when it comes to Jesus, God in the flesh. The word of God is always right, but men somehow have blurred its interpretations. This is why We are held to account on personally experiencing the word of life. Even the best teachers error! This verse here also gives us insight into how we come to this experiential knowledge of Christ. Lord, I want to know You more, however it must take place.
