Being & Building Followers & Friends of Jesus

"That I may know him" -- The Mind's Noblest Goal

“A person can be a person and not know Greek or algebra. But a person cannot be a person and not know God.” (Anonymous)

To be the person God intends us to be, it is imperative that we travel the Way to the Truth of Life [John 14:6].

To get to know the true God, we must live in fellowship with His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ [1 John 5:18-21].

To know a rich and satisfying life as a human being, we must stay close to the good Shepherd [John 10:10].


To know Christ experientially—and not merely academically—is the mind’s noblest goal [Philippians 3:10].  

To experience intimacy with Christ as He makes himself real to us, we must obey Him in every dimension [John 14:21].

To experience the holy presence of Christ, we must permit His Spirit to change our behavior [Galatians 5:22-25].

To experience the power that raised Christ from the dead, we must yearn for a moral resurrection [Romans 6:4].

To experience the joyful fellowship of Christ’s sufferings, we must walk in His footsteps day by day [1 Peter 2:21].

To experience the lifestyle of Christ’s servanthood, we must die to self at the foot of the cross [Galatians 2:20].

To experience transformation from the inside out, we must resist cultural pressure to conform to evil [Romans 12:2].

To experience the mind of Christ, we must repent of rebellious thoughts and learn His way [2 Corinthians 10:5].

"Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus." [Philippians 2:5 KJV]
