The greatest gift that God has given us is a risen Saviour!
To know the power of the resurrection, we need to have the knowledge, the belief and the faith in God, that leads to confession of sins, repentance and obedient surrender to God that will allow us entrance into his kingdom.
God wants us to grow and to be conformed into the image of his Son, who is the risen Saviour. God has made sure that we have the tools to do so.
but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV)
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
What is Knowledge
The dictionary definition of knowledge are, facts, information, and skills acquired through experience or education; the theoretical or practical understanding of a subject.
This dictionary definition is very limited when it comes to the supernatural knowledge of God because this type of Godly knowledge can only be obtained through the Holy Spirit.
God wants his children to study his perfect law of liberty to show themselves approved unto him.
2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV)
Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
