Did you know? (Sunday, October 11, 2020)

In the biblical understanding of what it means “to know the Lord” there is a “knowing about,” there is an “entering into trusting relationship with,” but there must also be “a doing of God’s will.” God is not “known” unless God’s will is done, and its only in the doing that God is truly known. To be in Christian faith is to know the Lord in this sense of threefold activity. It is because Jesus did the will of God perfectly that he could claim to know the Father best. It is because of his obedience that he can be our model of faith.
