10 so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, Colossians 1:10
Each day we should be growing in the knowledge of God. That’s not exactly a stunning revelation.
Back when I was completing language school, the Commandant of the school gave the same tedious speech at each graduation. It got so we were quoting entire passages from his speech. Forty years have passed, but the words, “language is a perishable gift. Even after you leave the Air Force you must continue to use it lest you lose it.” We laughed then because we were on top of the world and full of a new language. Today, though, after using it perhaps once or twice a year in unique situations, those words have come back to haunt me. Yes, if I heard the language I would realize which language it was but it would be difficult to do anything but that.
The knowledge of God is very much like that.
You see, the older we get the more we forget. A lot of times it helps just telling others where you’ve learned about God. Often we have to write it down.
It’s fun being able to read something I wrote when I was a new Believer. I don’t remember writing it but sure enough, it was my handwriting so I must have been experiencing it at the time.
That’s not to see we should be growing leaps and bounds every day, but if we just add to our knowledge one simple thing, that’s quite enough.
Give it away.
