Dearest SearchLighters-

Last night at Hope Generation (our Monday Night Service), my son Benjamin shared a special teaching geared especially for college-age kids and high-schoolers who are getting ready to head back to their campuses for the upcoming school year.

Knowing that many will be inundated with so-called “scientific facts” that are intended to undermine one’s confidence in The Bible and/or belief in God, Ben armed us with facts-and-stats to show just how current and even prescient God’s Word is in light of Quantum Physics.

Ben made it all amazingly understandable and also extremely entertaining!

I wanted to bring it your way for you to take it in personally..... and then to pass it on to any high-schoolers or college-age kids that would benefit from this presentation.

And, if possible, make sure you listen all the way through to the end, where it all comes together in a prophetic/exhortative way that will minister to your heart concerning the Greatness of our Creator and the Closeness of our Loving Father.

So fasten your seat-belts and buckle-up-your-brains, for your mind is about to be blown-away!

Daily Devotional
August 16
But ye have not so learned Christ; If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus ...
Ephesians 4:20-21
The world embraces greediness, uncleanness, and empty-headedness. ‘But you,’ said Paul, ‘have not learned Christ that way.’ Notice Paul doesn’t say, ‘You haven’t learned about Christ that way.’ He says, ‘You haven’t learned Christ that way.’

I can learn about Abraham Lincoln. I can read books about him, and I can go to Disneyland and ‘Meet Mr. Lincoln’ fifteen times in a row. That’s the way some people learn about Jesus. They read Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John fifteen times in a row and think they know Him. But in reality, they only know about Him.

To learn Christ implies communion and intimacy with Him. How does this happen practically? As you spend time studying John’s Gospel, for example, read a verse or two, then say to the Lord, ‘That convicts me,’ or, ‘That confuses me,’ or, ‘That reminds me,’ or, ‘That blesses me,’ — for in so doing, you will be communing with Him personally rather than merely learning about Him academically.

So whether you go for a walk, lock yourself in your bathroom, or drive to a secluded spot — find a place you can talk to the Lord as you read about Him. It will make all the difference in the world, for then you will truly learn Christ.
This Daily Devotional is an excerpt from the book "A Days Journey" by Pastor Jon. "A Days Journey" is a collection of 365 short devotions from the New Testament.  If you would like your own copy of "A Days Journey" you may click here to go to the SearchLight Store
