Philippians 3:10 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death,
God sent His only begotten son into the world to save us, so we can develop a personal relationship with Him.
So God want us to have a deeper relationship with Him on a daily basis.
FOR ANY RELATIONSHIP TO FLOURISH FIVE THINGS ARE VITAL
THE DEPTH OF EVERY RELATIONSHIP DETERMINES IT’S LONGEIVITY
1 Peter 4:8 (NIV) Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
1 Peter 1:22 (NIV)Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart.
HOW TO GAIN CHRIST JESUS.
Philippians 3:1 Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. For me to write the same things to you is not tedious, but for you it is safe.
2 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the mutilation!
3 For we are the circumcision, who worship [a]God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh,
4 though I also might have confidence in the flesh. If anyone else thinks he may have confidence in the flesh, I more so:
5 circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of the Hebrews; concerning the law, a Pharisee;
6 concerning zeal, persecuting the church; concerning the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.
7 But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ.
8 Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ
9 and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith;
10 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death,
11 if, by any means, I may attain[b] to the resurrection from the dead.
PRESSING TOWARD THE GOAL OF KNOWING JESUS PERSONALLY
12 Not that I have already attained,[c] or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.
13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have [d]apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,
14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
