    But let me give four reasons why you should make sitting at the Lord’s feet the main priority in your life: 1. The Word provides us with the very wisdom of God that we need for all of life’s decisions and direction. The best Greek manuscripts use the title “the Lord” (rather than “Jesus”) throughout this story. “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” (Romans ). Hard times can make it difficult to see God’s purpose especially when we only feel pain and grief. Many times we don’t want to be reminded that God is working our difficulty for our good.

    What matters supremely, therefore, is not, in the last analysis, the fact that I know God, but the larger fact which underlies it—the fact that he knows me. I am graven on the palms of his hands [Isa. ]. I am never out of his mind. All my knowledge of him depends on his sustained initiative in knowing me.   God said, "Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness" (Genesis a, NIV). A look at Colossians , in the New Testament, and we see: "For in him [Jesus] all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, all things .

    After salvation, knowing God starts with hearing what He has to say about Himself. Though we cannot know God fully in this lifetime (Isaiah ; 1 Corinthians ), we can know Him in part. He has revealed certain things about Himself to us. We find these revelations in God's written Word—the Bible—and the Word incarnate—Jesus. When God is a priority, you spend lots of time with Him, in His Word, and in prayer. God should be number one. God should be at the top of the list. God should be your main priority. Another way to make God a priority, aside from spending lots of time with Him, is to discover why He put you on this earth, what His plans for you are, and then.

Knowing God: Making God the Main Thing in My Life (Sisters: Bible Study for Women) by Kimberly Dunnam Reisman Download PDF EPUB FB2

Just completed this study with a small group of friends. The author makes the study enjoyable because there's a short chapter to read & reflect on each day of the week. Good book for discussion & spiritual growth.

Maybe better for young Christians. Excellent book no matter what your spiritual maturity/5(3). Knowing God: Making God the Main Thing in My Life (Sisters: Bible Study for Women) Reisman, Kimberly Dunnam (Actor) Format: DVD.

Paperback $ Editorial Reviews Sisters: Bible Study for Women - Knowing God (DVD) Special features. The Knowing God  study is for women who are hungry for the Word of God; who want to be "women of the Word." They are eager to study the Bible and know how to make it an integral part of their daily lives--how to integrate its teachings and truths into their everyday relationships, decisions, and challenges.

Read more Read lessAuthor: John Schroeder. “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” Knowing God the Father and Jesus Christ is eternal life. That doesn’t start when we go to heaven. Knowing God (eternal life) is something we can have right now (John ).

God reminded me on the bench overlooking the waterfall that He had already given me many insights into His will. In fact, I was currently reading part of His will for my life. In front of me, my Bible was open to the book of Philippians. I continued reading, but this time, the words on the page jumped out at me.

Answer: Within all of us there exists a strong desire to be known and to know others. These are the keys to truly knowing God.

Of course, our lives will involve much more, such as commitment to prayer, devotion, fellowship, and worship. This article first appeared in Forward volume 9, number 1 (). The full PDF can be viewed by clicking here. Christian books exploring the subject of God’s will are numerous.

Knowing and/or doing the will of God is often listed among the highest concerns of Christians in America today. A short review cannot take into [ ]. Accepting Jesus means believing that Jesus is the Son of God, then inviting him to guide and direct our lives.

11 Jesus said, “I came that you might have life, and have it more abundantly.” And here is Jesus’ invitation. He said, “I’m standing at the door and I’m knocking. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come.

Sometimes "life of God" or "God's own life" or even "uncreated life can mean eternal life and other times they can mean the Holy Spirit. Never does it mean the both at the same time. Otherwise you make God an impersonal thing-eternal life. Understand which usage is applied by the context of the passage and how the words flow together.

While society makes every attempt to make our life easier and faster, God works on a very different timetable. In his mind, nothing is wrong with waiting.

In fact, waiting can actually be a positive good that he often uses to make us more like his Son. The book is divided into three main sections: “Know the Lord,” “Behold Your God,” and “If God Be For Us.” We Should Study Theology Wisely In the Know the Lord section, Packer established the importance of theological study and the pursuit of knowledge about God and His will as.

Would to God that all true believers be infected with a huge dose of the same kind of enthusiasm for living the cross centered life.

“You’re holding the book you want to read to begin living the Christian life. You’re also holding the book you want to read to help you continue living the Christian life/5(). And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.

I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave me to do. And now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed.

Insight alone does not transform us; only the things that flow from the heart of God transform the lives of people. As God opens His heart to be known by us and as He builds His heart into us, His love will flow through us to those who are in desperate need of His forgiveness, His compassion, His healing.

Tozer begins his classic, The Knowledge of the Holy [Harper & Row], p. 9) with this provocative sentence: “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” He goes on to argue (ibid.), “We tend by a secret law of the soul to move toward our mental image of God.” His words, of course, reflect the psalmist’s comment concerning those who.

Jesus said that His true relations are those who know and do the Father’s will: “Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother” (Mark ).

In the parable of the two sons, Jesus rebukes the chief priests and elders for failing to do the will of the Father; specifically, they “did not repent and believe” (Matthew ). The time is now to make God the highest priority and to follow His way. The time is now to take advantage of the wonderful opportunity God is offering you at this very moment.

The time is now to change and make God’s purpose your purpose. Don’t put it off any longer. God is calling you to change your life—right now. John is telling you that if you get to know Jesus Christ, you have truly come to know the living God, who no one has ever seen.

John’s Gospel was written so that you may know that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in his name (John ). Surely the right response is to say, “I need to learn from. They are eager to study the Bible and know how to make it an integral part of their daily lives--how to integrate its teachings and truths into their everyday relationships, decisions, and challenges.

Each participant in the study will need a copy of this : God doesn’t send anyone to Hell. It was never His design to send people to Hell. It breaks the heart of God to see people, made in His image, make the deliberate choice to go. Foundations for Living. What about Parenting. Former president George H.

Bush was asked, “What is your greatest accomplishment?” This accomplished man could have. “God, I want to know Your will for my life.” We know it is wrong to play “fortune-teller.” But it seems wrong to say that the Bible cannot give us assurance that we can know God’s will.To grow in your relationship with God: To get to know God better, spend time in His word (the Bible) asking Him to reveal more of Himself to you and for Him to build your relationship with Him.

The Gospel of John (fourth book in the New Testament) is a great place to start. And talk to Him freely. God is God and He works all things, including your life, according to his purposes. Nothing can happen without God ordaining it.

Psalm says, "I cry out to God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me." This is key in understanding God's purpose for your life. God has numbered your days and will fulfill every purpose He has for you.
