I Want to Know Christ
In his old age, Paul is longing to know Christ. After all he has seen and done, the mystery of Christ still looms large. He doesn’t say he wants to know more about Christ, but he wants to KNOW him. The trajectory of his heart is clear - his whole being is swallowed up in the wondrous glory of Jesus, his Lord and Savior. What an example for us! As we get older, what longing, what fire remains?
