3:10 The knowledge of Christ, mentioned in the eighth verse, is here more largely explained. That I may know him - As my complete Saviour. And the power of his resurrection - Raising me from the death of sin, into all the life of love. And the fellowship of his sufferings - Being crucified with him. And made conformable to his death - So as to be dead to all things here below.
Php 3:10 That I may know him. By enjoying his presence in the soul; an experimental knowledge. And the power of his resurrection. The resurrection demonstrated him to be the Son of God with power (Ro 1:4). The mighty power that worked in his resurrection works in the saints (1) in their resurrection from spiritual death to a new life (Col 2:13 Eph 1:19-23). It is therefore a present power. (2) It works also when they are lifted from the dead to eternal life. Consciousness of the victory over sin is the earnest of the ultimate triumph over death. And the fellowship of his sufferings. Christ's life is the plan of that of the saint. Like him, we take the cross, are crucified with him (Ro 6:6), are baptized into his death (Ro 6:3), are planted in the likeness of his death, and are risen with him (Col 3:1). In all these we look to the suffering Savior, and are conformable to his death. Not only do we take the "form" of his sufferings, but we sympathize with him. If the obedience is from the heart, there is a partaking of his sufferings.
Ibietan Samuel's comment on 2015-04-08 15:38:58:
To be like Him is to surrender to Him in all all all things
MockingBird's comment on 2015-04-01 09:19:21:
I desire to know my Lord more and more. Just to have salvation is good : but I want to go on and know Him better. The power of His resurrection is God: God raised Jesus from the dead : Even so when I received Jesus as my Lord and Savior I was raised from the dead. The sufferings of Christ is not easy but very rewarding : I desire to go on and know Him better every day. Praise God !!!!
Renee Whitehead's comment on 2015-03-19 06:02:39:
This is what drives me more and more. To know Christ to the fullest. To share in His suffering, and to live in the power of His resurrection! My desire is to die more and more to the things of this world, to learn more and more of how to abide in His love and presence. I do not want to waste another moment failing to respond to the wooing of the Lover of my soul! May I die that His life may shine and radiant through me. Any suffering Imay experience is worth it if it draws me closer to know my Savior and bring glory to Him!

IF WE WANT TO BE SINCERE, THIS IS THE FOUNDATION THAT EVERY CHRISTIAN MUST REST ON TO MAKE HEAVEN. IT IS THIS KNOWLEDGE THAT CAN DRIVE YOU TO MAKE ANY SACRIFICE.
REV OLASUNKANMI LALA's comment on 2014-08-16 07:07:32:
IT IS A CONFESSION OF ONE WHO LONGS AND THIRSTS AFTER GOD, WHO IS READY TO MOVE ON WITH GOD EVERY INCH TO THE END OF LIFE 'S JOURNEY WHATEVER HAPPENS.
Owusu's comment on 2014-07-07 03:23:34:
knowing him is not abt reading about, it is about experiencing. it is having a close contact nd connecting with him daily. we know home by dwelling under his presence. in 1 Samuel 3, Samuel was serving in the temple of God by he never knew him until he decided to sleep neer the Ark of God which signifies the lords presence
Iheanyi Justin's comment on 2014-05-01 14:05:25:
The power of His Resurrection is a great hope for every believer to know that we have a place in Christ here on earth and the after life.
Bello Moses's comment on 2014-04-22 09:38:33:
knowing God and the power of his resurrection is knowing the exceeding great power of God which put one above principalities and powers Eph.1 18 23

Knowing him is a great treasure in ones life, because one feels the presence of God in his daily live. Knowing Him also suggest that Christ is put first in all your endeavours. KnowingHim also enables one to see his power and appropriate them rightly etc

this aspiration of bro Paul should also be every christians hunger too for He alone satisfies
Bassey David's comment on 2014-01-20 21:44:32:
Gives up anything that can hinder u from knowing God better: character, relationship, materialism, time etc. Never be satisfied with the level you have known God. He is eager to be revealed more to you. Sacrify that barrier.

I love this theme much! I am eager to know Christ the more.

Elisha O Ogundiya's comment on 2013-09-05 07:10:28:
Every child of God should aspire to know Christ the more,meaning daily becoming like Christ in words and deeds till He comes to perfect all that concerns us. Its a daily living and must till perfection is reached in Christ.
ANIETIE's comment on 2013-08-27 09:27:18:
This is one of the highest prayers ever prayed in the scripture. Just like the prayer of Moses the servant of God in Exodus 33:18. These people had great hunger for the things of God and the manifestation of his powers, yet, they desired for more and more and God answered their prayers. It's the type of prayer every believer should pray.
Yomi Peter's comment on 2013-07-18 04:02:20:
is a prayer of very christian to know christ and this is our theme this year. my prayer is that this year i want to see christ has paul d apostle saw him. amen
Emilia's comment on 2013-06-30 18:10:42:
Being just a Born Again Christian is not enough for a Child of God who wants to experience the supernatural wonders of God. A Child of God should be able to pant daily towards knowing the Power and the Mysteries surrounding the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and with this kind of experience, the devil will be begging God to send such a Christian to Heaven faster because he's a terror to their kingdom. This's because no Christian can claim to have that Delegated Authority in Christ without the knowledge of His resurrection through the Power of the Holy Spirit. Glory to God!
Peter Obota's comment on 2013-06-17 12:23:04:
To know Him entails doing away with all earthly gains that mar our intimacy with Him, to live in total submission to His will and word not minding the costs.
