    Philippians 3:9-11 King James Version (KJV)
    9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:

    10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;

    11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

    its all about relationship Bible knowledge is great . but as the old hymn title just a closer walk with the. he stands at the door of our heart and knocks. wanting to come in and have fellowship with him. granted there are several ways of knowing him. drawing nigh close to him. prayer study of his word . be still and know that i am God. as we grow we should know him better

    Works for me! Well said!

    That each and every day, He might become more and me less.

    Oh to reckon myself dead in all things, in a ever increasing way.

    Be blessed in Him, Not me

    From being dead in trespasses and sins; to being in faith dead to the world. :)

    “that I might know Him”

    There is such a heart felt longing in these words. Paul’s desire after God can be tasted. Oh to enter into Paul’s words with Him as he himself did. “that I might know Him”

    Be blessed as we strive that we might “know Him”.

    Psalm 63 comes to mind also; "My soul thirsteth for Thee; in a dry and thirsty land where no water is..."

    Reckoning ourselves dead onto sin and alive unto God is a marvelous thing indeed.

    Be blessed as this truth becomes more real to us each and every day.

    "its all about relationship Bible knowledge is great . but as the old hymn title just a closer walk with the. he stands at the door of our heart and knocks. wanting to come in and have fellowship with him. granted there are several ways of knowing him. drawing nigh close to him. prayer study of his word . be still and know that i am God [Psalm 46:10]. as we grow we should know him better"

    Ps. 46:10 is speaking of knowing God (YHWH, the Father).

    Phil. 3:10 is clearly speaking of knowing Christ.

    And eternal life is knowing both the Father (who is the only true God) AND Jesus Christ who was sent by the Father - John 17:1, 3.

    Yes, as we grow we must know them better. Unfortunately for some, they don't know God OR Jesus, since their traditions confuse the two.
