Welcome to this series of devotional posts based on ‘Roots & Wings’ an integrative Bible study for discipleship, written by Pastor Edmund Chan, our guest speaker at RISE, QB Convention 2015. Our thoughts will be based around five areas: our human weakness, the resulting problem, the radical re-orientation, the critical need, and the empowered life of Roots & Wings.
TOPIC: Who’s Really in Charge? (Biblical Allegiances)
The Empowered Life of Roots and Wings: A life hidden in Christ (Phil 3:7-14)
Knowing Christ is a process. Throughout our lives Christ continues to reveal himself to us personally but he also calls us to intentionally seek Him, His face and His will. Once you get to know Him personally you realise the beauty and sweetness of being in Him. Paul considered every advantage and gain he had in life as garbage if it stood in the way of knowing Christ at a deeper intimate level. Ask yourself what stands in your way of knowing Christ. Are you willing to give it up for the sake of knowing Christ?
