(1Pt. 3:18) says “But grow in grace, and in knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen.
As Christians, it is important that we continue to grow in the things of God that is appropriated by grace. Or another way of putting that is to continue to grow by means of the grace and favor of God. And we come to grow as we continually seek the knowledge and wisdom of Jesus Christ. In fact, (Hosea 4:6) says “My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge”. However, for the true believer it’s not simply the knowledge that we are after; it’s the heart transformation that we are after that comes through the knowledge of God.
Hence, the more we know about him drives us more and more to be transformed, to the degree that we become like him. Some people want the knowledge of God just so they can say they have it. However, it’s only those who transform the knowledge of the word into spirit and life; it’s only those who can transform the knowledge into a life that exemplifies that knowledge that will truly make it into heaven. If we have the knowledge only to impress man, what have we really done? Not much. But when that knowledge becomes a living, breathing word of God in us, then we can say we are on the straight and narrow path which will eventually lead us to heaven.
