Get to know anybody without Dr. Tony Evans talks about what it takes to expand your understanding of God.

Knowing God requires moments alone. This is the alternative with Dr. Tony Evans, author, speaker and pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas, Texas resident of the urban alternative. Most of us had to learn things in school we thought with never used in real life will today.

Dr. Evans talked about a kind of study that is not only useful but life-changing as well and making this a habit would be a great way to navigate the new year.

Let's join him as he explains what it is God pursued him like I know God will plan all study of you. We may trade perfection will become in your life in my life that we are able to find everything else accurately of all, I am simply unaware of God. That is simply say there is a God. That's not a very great reference point we be aware of God because it would be hot when you understand that, but he is an all encompassing being so first of all let's assert clearly that when I thought about knowing God anymore.

You are aware that he exists.

God is more than that, it's long been aware of the nation.

It's more than a religious experience to know God is to have you rub off on you to enter into relationship with God so that influences holy law great tragedy that you can charge and be aware of God you can charge about God when you condone the charging feel God, but you can live with never having talked about knowing God. I am talking about having information religious experience on you and become all you who I am and therefore you cannot of rub off the fact that how you treat your wife and how you raise your kids how you spend your money and how you relate the people. Secondly, study of God is the most authentic person is not only the most meaningful person in life is also the most authentic life in John 17 we have Jesus his high priestly prayer we read these first three verses look briefly at this concept these things Jesus spoke to look up his eyes, he said. Father, glorify thy son may glorify me by giving him authority over all mankind. That all given him may give eternal life. Verse three he says and is on a life that no true God and Jesus Christ will now have pickle. I like to everlasting life that is not about how long you thought about life three life that they know life can never be what I want for you unless that life is God's light way, you will get trauma life experience in this life and in the knowledge of that you know not God, to live life to God to live life like that's why Jesus said, give you my life because life can never be like it was meant to be live without the knowledge of many of our lives way using our own figure out how to live life without God dictating you can how brave our knowledge is limited to live life like life was meant to be live if you want to live life the knowledge of God because is life that you may know him so that you are not in line because you're also not the knowledge of what you mean like you can locate life you are a lot learn how to live. We think living is wrapped up in things we've already mentioned money off educational prestige or power when living is really wrapped up in the knowledge of God, and that's why splitting is so important. Verse 17 sanctify them by true byword is true there is a standard of information that clarifies what life is all about come from the word of God byword is true.

We have many college graduates in our church who spent 12 years primary patient elementary school junior high school school for you, people have to master degrees depending on the degree to document that was to look for 12 to 16 year studying to be what you are intended to be for the rest of your life that you can't do that You know, really good job really will try to get someone like me so much energy on what God is about one thing happening the knowledge of God. The knowledge of God's glory know how exciting sleep between earth and heaven is the knowledge of God is the interrupted knowledge of God. I was not document in the rep getting interrupted sleep eight hours you're not conscious of the knowledge of God. We have problems and a distraction from God, all God would have an effect with all the negatives so that you have the interrupted knowledge of God been related to the knowledge of God, he won't even let you go to sleep there. He will not give you a call so you won't miss sleep with knowledge and practice before we get by making the priority of the knowledge of God.

Our primary person thoroughly study of God is the most beneficial pursuit in life is not only most meaningful in the most authentic is the most beneficial. There is nothing will benefit you more day by day living in the knowledge of God that a number of things I want to say here.

I will turn all the reference them for those want to look at them further.

1132 says the people who know their God shall be strong and take action was caught in Babylon and ungodly nation that was turned over the line. The people who know God bad situation. The issues of life. The knowledge of God. The correct response to the life they would people want to correct. Florida correct the political order want to change their way.

God shall be able to take action. God is not something I'm constantly because of the five church and exposure God is given the ministry been called on to get in this movement. Given this movement to endorse dispersants to stand with the situation the March on this thing. Think many of them are five of them are not with knowing God.

If I say well that's not consistent with the biblical approach. What I have to say that what they don't want to hear approach number two think I am telling them that their approach is wrong, not on their agenda.

When you know God you can be competent about your approach. You have to walk: go back and forth and begin the people who know that God can stand at the right action. But what about the people who don't.

Dr. Evans will talk about them in the trouble they tend to get into what he continues this message from his current audio collection the best of Tony Evans, 20, 21 contains 20 of his most requested lessons of the past year, including messages on drawing closer to God.

Crews give us time to ask me take a journey Scripture else around awesome creation is Alaska more urban alternative Alaskan Tony today with God because we don't know God's life. Psalm .61 through 36 passes that you all know and love. God is our refuge and strength a very present help in the time of trouble.

Therefore we will not be changed, though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar all though the mountains quake at all. God will take to be secure knowledge of God, knowing that the knowledge of God gives wisdom in life. What Ephesians chapter 1 verse 17 six that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him 15 application with what God wants you later, when the truth shall left spiritual perspective application with the location of life God gives you this way the law the beginning of the knowledge and it gives you wisdom that God will show you why chapter 1 verses two and three says that the knowledge of God to give you a well life, grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord buying power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of him who called us by glory and excellence, knowledge, God will give you grace God will give you peace a great life. Life life life life. Knowledge of God love you become more aware about him but as he rubbed you to give you grace.

Please all of life that God is love life will give you Colossians chapter 1 verses nine. For this reason also since the day we heard of it. We have not ceased to pray for you and you maybe knowledge of his will in all spiritual law. Please respect bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God's knowledge of God here will produce spiritual life will change the way you walk walk differently life differently because you have been because of the knowledge of God.

Knowledge of his will will transform the life that one always reflects the character of the trio, which is why Christ. Secondly, always born when you stop them from other people like people want to be like you because you for the purposes of God.

Finally, God is the most challenging person is first of all, the most meaningful.

Secondly, of all the most authentic thoroughly of all the most beneficial and most importantly, most challenging reverses the rock your socks. Romans 1133, 36, all of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God, how unsearchable are his judgments on the ball on his way to know the mind of the Lord became counselor is given to him that it might be paid back for you and show him all things to him be glory for ever.

Amen. You want to challenge God's challenge because verse 33 says it'll never have anything to make it an challenge because you know secondly of all to know someone demand that they reveal themselves and grant you the knowledge of God.

God, God made himself to be known and why we don't know God can never be known exhaustively.

Also, if you go to know God challenge, because it must be your priority. Deuteronomy 429 says that you must search for God with all with all the knowledge of God's day. Why has God not made it easy to know how serious I just when you get up and work out just in time of need that extra 50 C is a challenge because it's a priority.

When we start. First of all, you must start with the desired Moses said to the 3313. He said show me thy way that I might David said of the deer pants after the water brooks, so pants my soul left of the old God. Psalm 42 Paul says in Philippians chapter 3 that I may know him.

Jesus said blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness for they shall be filled by all of the same thing.

God only think hungry people. If you're not hungry.*You save. I want to be hungry, but I'm not hungry how I get hungry if I don't want to be hungry and not hungry but going all knowledge on the project must start with an appetite. You can't get knowledge of God until you accept his son Jesus Christ.

Unless you are a Christian election of public faith in Christ. You can never get to the knowledge of God on the awareness of information you're not a Christian, you never received Jesus Christ as your only Savior is the only one who depending want to give you never know God. Once you are a Christian man is going to require time, you never get to know anybody without Scripture six. Be still and know that I still knowing God requires moments alone. Dr. Tony Evans, pointing out that we can't know God. If we don't spend time with him. An important goal for the new year and another significant goal for each of us, and perhaps more crucial right now than in times past is to find a way to inject kindness and or culture. Dr. Evan says when believers let people see our good works and not just here are good words we make a contribution to our society for good and for God. We encourage you to intentionally do a deed of kindness to someone in your sphere of influence.
