“I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding. 10 For I want you to understand what really matters, so that you may live pure and blameless lives until the day of Christ’s return. 11 May you always be filled with the fruit of your salvation—the righteous character produced in your life by Jesus Christ—for this will bring much glory and praise to God.” Philippians 1:9-11 NLT

Growth is essential to survival as a Christian; staying stagnant can be the death of any believer.
In our text for today, Paul is advising the people to keep on growing in knowledge and understanding. He even took it further in verse Philippians 4:10. He wanted to make sure that we, as the Remnant, live pure and blameless lives. The only way to do that is to keep on growing; keep on growing in knowledge and understanding. Unfortunately, the Church seems to think that when the Bible talks about growing in knowledge and understanding, it is only in Biblical things. Meanwhile, the world is expanding its knowledge in the spirit world. That knowledge influences every aspect of our lives. It has influenced fashion, education, entertainment, the judicial system, and much more.
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.” Hosea 4:6
The enemy uses the ignorance in the Church to ensnare the Body of CHRIST. We have many Christian homes that do not know what type of music their children listen to! Ignorance will not help you; rather it can kill the child! Remember, we are supposed to be GROWING in knowledge and wisdom. If your children are listening to music, you’d better know what the lyrics say. If your children are reading books, you’d better know what the book is about. The kids are growing in wisdom and knowledge of the world. The question is: What is the Church doing about it?
As the Remnant of the Body of CHRIST, we need to be on the offensive more than the defensive. We have said this repeatedly. Remember: We do not wrestle against flesh and blood. The enemy is constantly updating his playbook, changing up his tactics. But why does the Body of CHRIST always seem to be surprised? We need to ask HOLY SPIRIT to enlighten us about the tools the enemy is using.
How can the Remnant counter culture if the Ecclesia does not know what is IN culture? Seek out knowledge, Church. GROW!
