The knowledge of Christ is an important defense against the lies which are one of the Enemy’s chief weapons. A second part of our defense is becoming more like Christ and our knowledge of Him is instrumental in this sanctification. We see that:

  • We need an understanding of Christ in order to avoid the Enemy’s lies.
  • We must know about Christ’s life on earth in order to emulate Him - we think on His love for His Father, His love for His people, the reward set before Him and His living in the fear of the Lord.
  • Pure knowledge is not enough; a personal relationship with Christ through His grace is also necessary to be saved.
