Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 2nd September

Follow to Know

Let us know, let us pursue the knowledge of the Lord. (Hosea 6:3)

Not all at once, but by degrees shall we attain to holy knowledge, little by little. We need not despair, though our progress may be slow, for the Lord will not give us up, however slow of understanding we may be. The Lord delights to make the simple wise.

To know Father, Son, and Spirit, this is life eternal: let us keep to this, for in this way we shall gain complete instruction. By following on to know the Lord, we learn healing after being torn, and life after death. Experience has its perfect work when the heart follows the trackway of the Lord.

My soul, keep close to Jesus, follow on to know him, and so you will come to the knowledge of Christ, which is the most excellent of all the sciences. The Holy Ghost will lead you into all truth. Is not this His gracious office? Rely upon Him to fulfill it.
