Ep. 335: Knowing God Through Doing God’s Will

Today Jay begins a series on Knowing and Doing God’s will. In this opening episode Jay shares a powerful prayer from Colossians 1 that explains the lifelong connection between knowing God’s will and knowing God. The reality is that God often calls us to follow Him before we know him deeply. It can be hard to trust God enough to obey, but it’s in the path of obedience that we truly meet God and know him on a deeper level. 


Listen today as we discuss the lifelong pattern of:

  • Being filled with the knowledge of God’s will

  • Having the strength and courage to walk in God’s will

  • Bearing fruit as we step in faith

  • Moving from knowing about God to knowing God

  • The fruit of thanksgiving as experience a deeper walk with God
