Today is Day 31 of Draw the Circle.
 
Companionship with Jesus in the Gospel will give us the historical knowledge we need to know, but another kind of knowledge is required, personal knowledge of who he is based upon our own experience. It’s like getting to know another human being, only one who can be with us constantly, day and night. This doesn’t happen overnight, but over time. It comes when we give ourselves to him, as Albert Schweitzer writes, “He will reveal himself in the toils, the conflicts, the sufferings” in which we pass through in our daily walk.
 
Memory verse for the week: Nahum 1:7
The Lord is good, a stronghold in a day of trouble; he protects those who take refuge in him.
