Packer: the main business

Sunday, May 3, 2020
    I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.
    —Philippians 3:10-11 (NIV)
    Once you become aware that the main business that you are here for is to know God, most of life’s problems fall into place of their own accord.
    ... James I. Packer (b. 1926), Knowing God, London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1973, p. 34 (see the book)
    See also Phil. 3:10-11; Ps. 9:10; Jer. 31:33-34; Hos. 6:3,6; John 17:3; 2 Cor. 4:6; Eph. 1:17-18; 2 Tim. 1:12; Heb. 8:10-12; 1 John 5:20
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, knowing You is more important than knowing myself.
