    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
  • Tina on Philippians 3

  • Imbazi esther ib on Philippians 3:10
    knowing christ is the ultimate for every child of God not just graving for his power but in suffering and death just as christ choose to suffer and die for mankind
  • Dorcas idakwo on Philippians 3:10
    this aspiration of bro Paul should also be every christians hunger too for He alone satisfies
  • Bassey David on Philippians 3:10
    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.
  • Bassey David on Philippians 3:17
    Search for motive. Paul had the zeal and interest of the followers at hand. Enquire both in prayer and interaction before u support any opinion to the end.
  • Oluwole gabriel on Philippians 3:8
    salvation and christian living is a transaction in whish the recipient emptied himself of all merits to take up the merits of Christ .God in return gives him all he supposedly lost because HE will owe no man
  • Oluwole Gabriel on Philippians 3:7
    matt10;37-39he that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me;and he that loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me;he that takes not his cross and follow me is not worthy of me;he that finds his live shall lose it;and he that lose his live for my sake shall find it.matt6;24no man can serve two masters ;for either he will hate the one,and love the other,or else he will hold to the one ,and despise the other,you cannot serve God and mammon
  • Demi bey on Philippians 3:19
    I agree with the scripture above I'm struggling with that it no difference with anything else we struggle with in our life sin has no favorites in Gods eye sight

  • Dan Bako Bello Esq on Philippians 3:10
    I love this theme much! I am eager to know Christ the more.
  • ILIYA DANJUMA on Philippians 3:10
    Yes! Despite paul's credentials enumerated in the same philipians 3:10 he counted them all as noting but, lost because of christ to share in his suffering I pray this to be all christians pray and zeal even in this contemporary time amen !
  • Alex manful on Philippians 3
    this is a verse that dropped in my heart when I was in dire straits. I have accepted Christ. I see the blood accomplish great things for me the blood but I needed the other weapon in Revelation 12:11 "they overcame him through the blood and the word of their testimony". This experience involved may not be pleasant but it arms us for battle as aptly put in James so that we may know him vet the more because he knows us but we don't know Him. Two cannot walk that way; it must be reciprocal as Job found out: ..but know I have seen you with my own eyes and I repent in ashes!
  • UWANYAGASANI Jacques on Philippians 3:10
    I want to experience life of the Son of God who died for me yet i was still sinner ,He has forgiven me by his unfailing love. His blood that was shed ,it was for remisssion of my iniquities ,victory is on bearing long suffering from Bethlehem ,He never sinned and on third day, He rose again ,this is my hope that though i am dead ,through Him life comes in me such that Christlike is reflected within me. To Him be the Glory forevermore , Amen!
  • Elisha O Ogundiya on Philippians 3:10
    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 on Philippians 3:10
    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.
  • Charles Lundy Yarbrough on Philippians 3
    if you rmind is on earthly things, you are an enemy of Jesus...period.
  • Yomi peter on Philippians 3:10
    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 on Philippians 3:10
    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!
  • Timothy Wayne George on Philippians 3
    Paul's number one desire, was to know Jesus in the power of His resurrection, the fellowship of His suffering, and being made in the likeness of His death, that he might attain unto the resurrection of the dead. Jesus told Paul at his conversion, that he was a chosen vessel, and that He would show Paul what great things he must suffer. Paul learned that all his past accomplishments in the flesh where dung, in order that he might know Christ, and to be accepted in the beloved. Brothers and sisters our goal as Christians, is to be like Jesus, and He alone will change our vile bodies, then fashion them like unto His glorious body at the resurrection of the just. So our life is hid in Christ, and our conversation is in heaven where Christ dwells. So let us forget those things which are behind, and focus on what is ahead, that we may win Christ Amen.
  • Peter obota on Philippians 3:10
    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.
  • I'm focusing on versus 13 of this chapter: and it reads "Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus".
    That verse says to me that Paul, was aware that he still had his flaws,even being in the active will of God, but that it does not stop him from getting right back up, and going after perfection. See i believe that God leaves us in our bonds for a while, to prove to us how bad we want him, that we don't so easily turn back to our unrighteous way, for if it came easy, then we would probably, easily let it go.
    So in actuality, how bad we want God, will show in how dedicated we are, to becoming perfect.

    And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Says Galatians 6:9
  • Rev Mike on Philippians 3
    I view 3:10 a bit different than Naphtali D.Telta's post. I believe he is in search of the Holy Spirit to help him understand since it mentions that it is after Christ's death ...
  • Naphtali D.Telta on Philippians 3:10
    After having an encounter with God in acts9 apostle Paul wants to have an intimate relationship with Christ to know his character,his likes and dislikes.
  • Michael Belanger on Philippians 3
    Paul was saying that if we are to truly be followers of Christ we must will suffer persecution. If we truly are mindful of the things of Christ it will be evident in our walk.
  • R. D. Mattock on Philippians 3
    That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
    Before we can really appreciate the victory that we have in Jesus Christ, because of His resurrection, we need to fully comprehend and understand the amount of suffering He went through on our behalf and the great price that He paid for our victory.

    Matthew's gospel, in Chapters 26 & 27, gives us a detailed description of the suffering that Jesus went through for us.
    1. He was betrayed by one of His disciples.
    2. He suffered an agonizing night in the garden of Gethsemane.
    3. He watched as one of his most beloved and loyal disciples denied Him three times.
    4. He faced the Sanhedrin where the chief priests and elders rejected His testimony.
    5. He endured the crucifixion and the nailing to the cross.
    6. The greatest price He probably paid was that of being rejected for a time by His own Heavenly Father when He cried out "My God, My God, why have you forsaken Me".
    The Book of Isaiah gives us a vivid account of the suffering that Jesus would go through because of the sins of mankind.

    Isaiah 53:1-7
  • Xabisa on Philippians 3:10
    I want to know the person who loved me even when I didnít know Him; who was willing to die just for me to live, what a sacrifice I would like to be like Him, and have such a heart.
  • Mercy Anwa on Philippians 3:10
    I want to know Jesus Christ in the glory of His Person, in the Perfection of His work and in the riches of His wondrous grace. Not by mere theoretical knowledge got from books, but by the Holy Spirit's works in my heart.
  • Ofem Etata Ikpi on Philippians 3
    Paul emphasizes that we should press forward; it means our goal is marking eternal life in Christ Jesus, forget our sinful past.
  • Felix Tawiah Danquah on Philippians 3:10
    Nobody witnessing our Lordís resurrection could doubt His Divine Character, and that His mission upon earth was from the eternal God. Well did Peter and John declare that it was the Prince of Life that God had raised from the dead. Our Lord had given this for a sign unto the mocking Pharisees; that as Jonah lay in the deep till the third day and then came forth, even so would He, Himself, lie in the heart of the earth till the third day and then arise from the dead. His rising proved that He was sent of God and that the power of God was with Him.
  • Essie Norfleet on Philippians 3:13
    As long as I am living, I have not yet attained the prize yet.I am working towards getting the prize,so when I leave this world I will be with Jesus eternally. that's the prize that I work towards.
