Knowing God by Adrian Rogers

Dr. Adrian Rogers

Would you take God's precious word and turn with me
please to First Corinthians chapter 2. I want to
speak to you today on the subject of knowing God.
Let's read the first five verses. "And I, brethren,
when I came to you came not with excellency of speech
or of wisdom," that is, I did come as an orator, I did
not come as a philosopher, "declaring unto you the
testimony of God. For I determined not to know
anything among you except Jesus Christ, and him
crucified. And I was with you in weakness, and in

going to obey him, for we cannot fully obey someone we
do not trust. And when we obey him we're going to be
blessed, for the Bible says "if you know these things,
happy are ye if you do them." "Trust and obey for
there's no other way to be happy in Jesus, but to
trust and obey." So, do you want to be blessed? Then
you have to obey. Do you want to obey? Then you have
to trust. Do you want to trust? Then you need to
love. Do you want to love? You need to know. You
