Saturday Night Call To Worship: ‘Knowing You Jesus’ from Graham Kendrick

“Indeed, I count everything as loss compared because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.” Philippians 3:8 ESV

The above passage from Philippians 3 should probably be one more Christians meditate on. How many problems do we face each week because we are more concerned about gaining in worldly values rather than in our knowledge of and relationship to Jesus Christ? It is a battle we face regularly as humans, but the solution is clear and available.  Knowing Jesus is a treasure with endless value, as this relationship we have allows us to not only see blessings on earth, but also grants us a home in heaven for eternity.

I would imagine for most of those who will read this blog, Graham Kendrick is an unfamiliar name. However, this beautiful song, ‘Knowing You Jesus’, is a gentle and peaceful reminder that knowledge of Jesus has value we cannot find anywhere else. What power could be found if we could bring our lives to a place of treasuring our relationship with Jesus above anything else?

As you prepare for worship tomorrow, allow that last thought to simmer in your mind for a bit. What are you missing in life because Jesus is not your most cherished possession? Enter your worship tomorrow ready to get more knowledge about this amazing Jesus!  – Timothy

‘Knowing You Jesus’ can be found on the album, The Very Best of Graham Kendrick.

  1. knowing Jesus means knowing what Jesus said is the most important commandment. It’s not “love”……

    Poem – What is love?

    Two men came to Jesus
    With different motivations.
    They asked Him the same question
    Relevant to all the nations:

    Which is the Most Important?
    The answer was the same.
    Jesus did not manipulate
    He was not there to play a game.

    “Love the Lord your God” said Jesus
    as He quoted from The Law –
    to fulfill and not abolish
    was His purpose, full of awe.

    Jesus did not make all Scripture
    Into one new great commandment.
    He summarized The Law and Prophets
    “First and Greatest” and “The Second.”

    The Love of God is higher
    Than the love of any man.
    Receive from God, give back to God-
    Then to others, that’s His plan.

    The Love of God involves much more
    Than simply “love your fellow man.”
    Worship, trust, and pray to God,
    and obey Him – that’s His plan

    To worship and pray to neighbors,
    Whoever they may be,
    Or trust and obey our enemies
    Would be idolatry.

    The love of God is first and greatest,
    And the love of man is second.
    “All we need is love” are words
    of dead Beetles on the pavement.

    “The entire law is summed up in a single command”
    are not the words of Jesus our Salvation.
    It’s false teaching of Paul the Pharisee
    an “accuser of our brethren.”

    “Love” without God is Satan’s word through Paul
    in his chapter to the Corinthians.
    “I will show you the most excellent way”
    is the road to eternal perdition.

    Where is God in Paul’s chapter on love?
    Nowhere in view of the eye.
    Paul sings about himself like a Mexican Mariachi
    “I, I, I, I.”

    Jesus is The Most Excellent Way
    Not the words of a Pharisee.
    The words of Jesus are very clear.
    Jesus said, “You must follow ME.”
