Text:

Psalm 103:1-5

1Bless the Lord, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
2Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits:
3Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
4Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
5Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

The Excellency of the Knowledge of Christ

·      Excellence is a quality which means superb, outstanding, exceptional, brilliant, and admirable.

 

·      Knowledge on the other hand refers to understanding, intelligence, learning, expertise, and experience.

 

·      Christ refers to Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of the Living God, the only One who can save mankind from sin (Acts 4:12). The Saviour of the whole world, the only mediator (go between) between people and God (1 Timothy 2:5).

 

The excellency of the knowledge of Christ therefore refers to having an outstanding understanding of Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God through learning and experience.

 

There are so many fields of endeavor that a person can acquire knowledge in.

Some may acquire the knowledge to build an aeroplane that flies, some acquire knowledge about how to build missiles and explosives. Some others tend towards building cars, improving wireless communications etc.

Of all the knowledge that can be acquired, the one that can be regarded as excellent among them is having the knowledge of Christ.

 

This knowledge is unique because:

·      It has ramifications both here and, in the hereafter, – in the world to come.

o  While other forms of knowledge benefits in this world, only the knowledge of the Son of God can deliver you from eternal damnation in hell and the Lake of fire.

 

·      A unique aspect of this knowledge is that it is taught by the Holy Spirit of God

Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. (KJV)

We also speak of these things, not in words taught or supplied by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining and interpreting spiritual thoughts with spiritual words [for those being guided by the Holy Spirit]. (AMP) (1 Corinthians 2:13)

May the Holy Spirit teach you great and mighty things that cause you to be a teacher of great and life transforming things in the name of Jesus.

 

·      It brings healing and deliverance to your body, soul, and spirit (1 Thessalonians 5:23).

May the healing power of God rest on your body, soul and spirit in Jesus’ name.

 

·      This knowledge of Christ makes you a unique solution provider and brings you before kings.

In Daniel 5:14, the Bible says:

I have heard of you, that the Spirit of God is in you, and that light and understanding and excellent wisdom are found in you.

May you be sought out as a unique solution provider in Jesus’ name.

 

·      This excellent knowledge requires exalting the acquisition of that knowledge and pressing on towards God’s high calling for your life as stated in Philippians 3:

Knowing Christ is Above All

7But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. 8Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, 9And 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: 10That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; 11If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

Press on Toward the Goal

12Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. 13Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, 14I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

May you attain God’s high calling for your life in the name of Jesus.
