To know Christ, whom to know aright is life eternal, and to know the power of his resurrection; to have an intimate relationship with him should be the desire of every child of God. Our prayer ought to be- that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him.
We are the brothers and sisters of Christ, he being our elder brother. Jesus said: “I ascend unto my Father and your Father, to my God, and your God.” Having a common faith with our Lord makes us brothers and sisters with him.
Oh! if only the eyes of our understanding might be opened so that we could see the fabulous riches of Christ and his glory, and to realize that as brothers and sisters of his, we are joint heirs with him and all that is his is ours. Pray that: “The eyes of your understanding will be enlightened-that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints and what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality, and power and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world but also in that which is to come and hath put all things under his feet and gave him to be the head over all things to the church which is his body the fullness of him that filleth all in all.” Ephesians 1:18-23.
