Our partnership in ministry is much more than weekly Bible studies in the House and Senate: We are purposefully leveraging the spiritual fruit of the D. Via the influence of you Members on the Hill we are planting new ministries — not only in U.

Reward Yourself

With the latter in view, please be praying for three upcoming ministry leader training conferences in Eastern Europe, French and English Africa, and Central America. These recruiting and training conferences have as their purpose the objective of planting new Federal Capitol ministries in those respective areas of the world. Thank you for your partnership in ministry to reach Public Servants for Christ worldwide! It is quite exciting to see what God is doing — as you can tell by the sidebars in our weekly Bible study notes.

I just love what God is enabling us to do together! And that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge.

Conscious Of God’s Love

At first glance, this particular passage may seem to be expressing the priority of love over knowledge per the last stanza. The primacy of love over knowledge is certainly the case in 1Corinthians Elsewhere, in 1Corinthians 8: This is not so much a comparison of knowledge to love as is the case in the aforementioned passages as it is a proclamation concerning the mental incomprehensibility of love: The vastness of the love of Christ is unintelligible in ways similar to star gazing.

Peering into the sky at night aids more so the incomprehensibility of the universe than it does knowledge of it. The love of God is mentally unfathomable! A further extremely important perspective is in order relative to the tension between knowledge and love: In stating the preeminence of love over knowledge, it is improper to assert the converse: This is a tragic mindset that is ever brewing in American Christianity today.

To illustrate my point metaphorically, someone who eats at the dinner table for three hours a night might not be puffed up at all physically speaking. In fact, he could be competing in the Tour de France in the morning! Those who pursue knowledge are not necessarily unloving.

The sinfulness or otherwise appropriateness of the pursuit of knowledge depends on motives. In the book of Proverbs, the word knowledge appears 40 times, always related to and descriptive of a wise person. And scoffers delight themselves in scoffing, and fools hate knowledge?

This is worthy of our time relative to supporting my proposition regarding the importance of pursuing knowledge.

Notice how each of the following stages of personal spiritual growth are dependent on knowledge:. I am writing to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I have written to you, children, because you know the Father. I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one.

The below chart is an attempt to sort out the above, twice repeated, three distinct stages of spiritual maturity as delineated by the Apostle John in this passage. Observe what titles John mentions in the same order, two times: Again, keep in mind my point for delving into this exercise: With this in mind, look more closely at each of the three in the same order John presents them:. Little children are saved but they only possess a rudimentary understanding of God: Nonetheless, he possesses this knowledge in comparison to an unsaved person who does not possess this knowledge.

Satan can and often does make havoc of little children because they have little knowledge of his wiles.

Conscious Of God’s Love – Contentment Cottage

In opposition to those who say that knowledge in the life of the believer is unimportant or of lessor importance, note the contrary: Scripture says knowledge is absolutely critical to spiritual maturity! The father of the faith is the one who is depicted by John as the most spiritually mature; he has a deep knowledge of the Eternal God: This is commensurate with Philippians 3: Young men are those who, while not yet having walked with God over a longer period of time and gotten to know Him as is the case with a father, who has experienced the truths of His Word first-hand, do know sound doctrine in contrast to the child of the faith who does not yet.

They are strong against sin and error because the word of God abides in [them], which is synonymous with having knowledge of His Word. It is via this knowledge that this believer has overcome the deceitfulness of the evil one. And each respective level is related to their commensurate knowledge. The point again, for stating all of this in the introduction is that one can only become a Father in the faith and have profound intimacy with God by first becoming a Young Man in the faith.

And, one becomes a Young Man in the faith by being strong in the Word, all of which implies obtaining knowledge.

God's Potpourri of Love

In summary of the introduction, herein lies the tension between knowledge and love. Genuinely smile while passing by other people image of God-bearers in a store, looking them in the eyes and actually seeing them internally not just noticing them externally ; 2. Attentively listen and empathetically relate to the story, situation, or circumstance of another human, focusing on understanding their perspective and not just preparing to re-direct the conversation back to ourselves, 4.

Enthusiastically read a book to a child, grabbing their attention as we read with varying accents, inflections, and volumes to convey to them the message of the story; 5. Generously wave through another car at a stop sign, even if we were there first; 6. Anonymously drop off an encouraging note or a plate of freshly-baked treats to a neighbor; 7. Graciously allow others to interrupt us, setting aside our wants to attend to their needs; 8.

Pause to pray for a loved one, acquaintance, or stranger when they cross your mind; 9.

Intentionally wake up extra early or stay up extra late to complete a chore that another family member normally does; Thoughtfully bring a fresh cup of coffee or mug of tea to a co-worker or colleague; Consciously forgive and improve the lives of those who have hurt us; Instinctively introduce ourselves to those we do not know i. Jesus-People—we are His aroma on earth…may we never forget that! God has given us the task of telling everyone what he is doing. God put the wrong on him who never did anything wrong, so we could be put right with God.
