GOOD NEWS FOR YOUR WEEK
TGIM – Thank God It’s Monday!

THE WORD IS: “Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies. And if any man thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know. But if any man love God, the same is known of Him.”  1 Corinthians 8:1-3

THE POINT IS: “You know, that you know, that you know,” or so it’s been said. People also say, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” This is especially true when it comes to God, because He’s all-knowing! When you are known of God and you really get to know Him, you develop a sense of knowing. It goes with the territory. You just know! His Spirit will make things known to you. You will be able to know the unknowable. He will grant you the kind of knowing that brings understanding. “The knowledge of the Holy is understanding” (Proverbs 9:10). This does not refer to knowing about God—an intellectual pursuit. It’s about knowing Him—a Spiritual revelation. Such knowing brings total transformation because He makes the application in your life! Unless you know God in an intimate personal way, you don’t really know anything yet. But when you get to know Him, truly know Him, He will transform your life! You will have an experiential knowledge of the Lord and you will begin to experience Christ as your life in the practical, daily details of your life. This is God’s love in action, building you up from the inside out!


THE APPLICATION IS:
Knowing God intimately and experientially as your life is the ultimate knowledge! However, the acquisition of intellectual knowledge, by itself, results in pride—an inflated ego. This is why it is so important for you to recognize that God is the one who gave you the ability and the opportunity to learn. It is but one of many examples of His great love for you! This love compelled Him to give you the very best—Himself! “We love Him, because He first loved us” (1 John 4:19). Such love should prompt a love response from you in return. Have you given yourself to your Creator God? Have you accepted His rightful dominion over your life? Are you submitted to His authority? If so, then you’re in good hands, because He looks out for His own! Therefore, thank Him for the wonderful mind He’s given you and submit your mind, with all it’s wealth of human knowledge, to the guidance of the Holy Spirit. He will teach you all things and guide you in the way that you should go. And His way is always the best!

Have a great week,
