A PERSONAL Saviour

Spurgeon on Philippians 3:8b: I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord.

Spiritual knowledge of Christ will be a personal knowledge. I cannot know Jesus through another person*s acquaintance with Him. No, I must know Him myself; I must know Him on my own account. It will be an intelligent knowledge-I must know Him, not as the visionary dreams of Him, but as the Word reveals Him. I must know His natures, divine and human. I must know His offices-His attributes-His works-His shame-His glory. I must meditate upon Him until I *comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge.* It will be an affectionate knowledge of Him; indeed, if I know Him at all, I must love Him. An ounce of heart knowledge is worth a ton of head learning. Our knowledge of Him will be a satisfying knowledge. When I know my Saviour, my mind will be full to the brim-I shall feel that I have that which my spirit panted after. *This is that bread whereof if a man eat he shall never hunger.* At the same time it will be an exciting knowledge; the more I know of my Beloved, the more I shall want to know. The higher I climb the loftier will be the summits which invite my eager footsteps. I shall want the more as I get the more. Like the miser*s treasure, my gold will make me covet more. To conclude; this knowledge of Christ Jesus will be a most happy one; in fact, so elevating, that sometimes it will completely bear me up above all trials, and doubts, and sorrows; and it will, while I enjoy it, make me something more than *Man that is born of woman, who is of few days, and full of trouble*; for it will fling about me the immortality of the everliving Saviour, and gird me with the golden girdle of His eternal joy. Come, my soul, sit at Jesus*s feet and learn of Him all this day.
