How to know Jesus more

With prayers and meditation, consider the following scripture passages even as you ask our Heavenly Father to give you a deeper understanding of them:

"That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death"(emphasis mine) - Philippians 3:10

"But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you."(emphasis mine) - John 14:26

Life without Christ is life full of crisis. In other words, this is another way of saying the deeper you know Christ, the farther away from crisis you get.

Besides, Jesus is the ONLY way to God the Father, no other way exists. So, the closer you are to Christ the more access you have to God and His blessings.

Therefore, desiring and then moving on to learn how to know Christ more than you presently do is an exceedingly wise thing to do.

The Very Essential Steps to Know the Lord More

1. Have an open heart

In your prayers, ask God for an open heart to learn more about the Lord. This is particularly important because any mind clogged with the philosophy, theology and the traditions of men will find it difficult to know the Lord more. There is need for you to have an open mind towards the gospel of Jesus so He can reveal Himself to you.

2. Ask for the help of the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is there to reveal Christ to you, so engage His help. He is the most authentic person to consult about Jesus. Just ask Him to teach you more about Jesus and expect Him to do so and I tell you He will.

3. Study the Bible

If you want to know more about anybody, read about that person. Likewise, if you want to know Jesus more, study the bible. The scriptures, from Genesis to revelation, are centered on Jesus Christ. They talk about Him; Jesus is the word of God. Also, the Word is spirit and life and so it imparts your life. No man, I repeat NO MAN, or written materials can correctly inform you about Jesus Christ better than the Holy Bible.

4. Pray

The longer you stay with an individual, the better you know him or her. So also, the more time you spend in fellowship with God in prayer, the better you get to know Jesus. This is because you can't get to the father except through Jesus; your prayer is in the name of Jesus and your fellowship is with God the father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.

5. Be thankful and praise-full

You can't learn much about the Lord without a heart of gratitude. God inhabits the praises of His people (Psalm 22:3). A heart full of Praise and thanksgiving attracts Jesus anytime and anywhere. And when He comes He reveals Himself to the person. Praise invokes revelations from God, including revelations about Christ.

6. Be obedient

Obedience opens you up to deeper knowledge of Christ. It is an important step on how to know Jesus more. Jesus reveals Himself to those who obey His commands. You will know Christ more as you obey His instructions. See John 14:15-17.

7. Be open for correction

When you are not open to corrections from Jesus you cut yourself off from Him. Through corrections from the Lord, we are delivered from the evil one. And anybody who hates correction cannot know the Lord more and is heading for a disaster. See Proverbs 3:11, 15:10 (and also 22:15, 23:13).


In conclusion, it is possible to learn how to know Jesus more. Act on the steps above and you will certainly know Christ more. They that do know their God shall be strong and shall do exploits.
