‘His divine power has given us everything needed for life and Godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness…’ (2 Peter 1:3)
Francis Bacon once said, ‘Knowledge is power…’, and certainly when we scroll through the pages of our history books we can see many clear examples of individuals who thought in this way. However, from a Biblical perspective, knowledge is more about understanding the truth of God. It is not simply about knowing who God is, but rather knowing God in the light is His truth, and for us as Christians that means looking to Jesus Christ.
However, as Christians we are also called to bear witness to this truth and to share it with others in our everyday lives. And that means not just looking to Jesus, but as best we can, looking to following His teaching and His example, by demonstrating his love, care and compassion for others in whatever way we can – and perhaps especially so, at this trying time.
Lord thank you for coming to us in Your Son, that we might come to know You through Him. By our words and actions, may we bear witness to You to others, that they too may come to know You for themselves. Amen
