    “‘The Knowledge of Christ’” The Signs of the Times, 22, 25.

    E. J. Waggoner

    “The Knowledge of Christ.” —“But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.” 2 Peter 3:18. The trouble with so many people is that they do not know the value of the treasure which they have received. They receive Christ, and are blessed; then, by reason of not increasing in the knowledge of him, they are conscious of a great lack, and so hastily conclude that the gift which they have received is not great enough, and that God must have another to reserve for them-as though God had any greater gift than Christ, or that when he gave Christ, he made some reservation. No; with him he freely gives us “all things.” If we have received Christ, our part is to study him, that we may know that in him all our wants are supplied.SITI June 25, 1896, page 392.1

    “Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him; the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly [places.” Ephesians 1:15-20. E. J. W.SITI June 25, 1896, page 392.2
