DAY 1: KNOWING HIM

But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith. I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of His resurrection and participation in His sufferings, becoming like Him in His death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead.

Philippians 3:7-11

 We could make a lot of goals for our kids. We, no doubt, have great dreams and aspirations for them. We want what is best, and it is important to remember there is no greater aspiration or goal we should have for them than that they know and experience the fullness of Jesus Christ.

Pray you would keep this priority and your student would not just “know about” but truly KNOW Jesus.

Father,
