Walk with Jesus: Part Five – Increase in the Knowledge of God….How do we gain the Knowledge?

in the
Colossians 1:9-12

We’ve been studying Colossians 1:9-12 for the past few days. It is an interesting study. Going through this passage a section at a time has taken some time, but I think in doing so we are slowly learning about Walking with Jesus. We’ve learned that prayer is simply talking to God, sharing our hearts and minds with Him. We learned that Walking with Jesus is talking with Him anytime, anywhere, and while we are doing anything. We also learned about knowing God’s Will, that if we ask God will teach us what His Will is and how we are to do it. In our last post we discussed what it meant to Walk Worthy of the Lord. We learned that to Walk Worthy we need to be Walking and Growing in Christ daily, trusting Him to take care of us and guide us.

Colossians 1:10 Paul’s Prayer

Why should we be increasing in the knowledge of God? How do we gain/grow in our knowledge of God? We’ll start by discovering why we should increase in the knowledge of God.

  • The Better we Know God, the more our love will grow for Him.
  • ….. We will trust Him more
  • ….. We will brag about Him more
  • ….. We will experience eternal life with Him more
  • ….. We will be discerning more
  • ….. We will experience His delight more

Now we know why, but what about the how? What must we do to grow in the knowledge of God? To grow in Christ means to get to know Him better. The following are ways in which we can use to get to Know God better and grow in His knowledge.

  • Read God’s Word, The Holy Bible. Renew our Minds.

“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.”

Romans 12:2
  • The Bible gives us spiritual wisdom and understanding.
  • God’s Word Reveals Christ to us.
  • Time and experience.
  • Submit to God’s plan
  • Keep our Eyes on God
  • Pray continuously
  • Spread God’s Love
Ephesians 1:17

Therefore, in order to grow in the knowledge of God we must read and study the Word of God, we must pray, talk to Him constantly, we must share God’s love with others. we must allow God to grow us into who He wants us to become.

God Bless. Walk with Jesus. Pray to God. Study God’s Word. Grow in Christ. Become more like Christ each day.
