Know Yourself that You May Know God

Posted on January 25th, 2022

You are not God. But it is impossible to know God without first knowing yourself.

Many Christians believe that denying ourselves means we are to dismiss our own thoughts, feelings, and desires.

But as Augustine said in 400 A.D., “How can you draw close to God when you are far from your own self?” Augustine then prayed, “Grant, Lord, that I may know myself that I may know thee.”

This means, as Paul writes, we must learn how to put off our false self, and put on our new self in Christ. (Eph. 4:22)

Today, on the podcast, we continue an 8-week series in which we explore the seminal work from Emotionally Healthy SpiritualityIf you are a pastor, leader, or listener and you want to grow in emotional health, this series is a must-listen.

If you missed the first episode on the problem of emotionally unhealthy spiritualityyou can listen to it here.

As we say – you can’t be spiritually mature, while remaining emotionally immature.
