Ruskin: to know Him

Thursday, February 8, 2018
    But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith
    —Philippians 3:7-9 (NIV)
    To live is nothing, unless to live be to know Him by whom we live.
    ... John Ruskin (1819-1900), Modern Painters, v. II, New York: John Wiley, 1852, p. 7 (see the book)
    See also Phil. 3:7-9; Job 19:25; John 11:25-26; Acts 17:27-28; Col. 1:15-17; 2 Tim. 1:12
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, to know You is the greatest hope of my life.
