Knowing God

by 

knowing_godPreviously, we looked at The Doctrine of God and examined 10 Attributes of God, which are revealed to us in Scripture. In today’s message, we will consider what impact these truths have on our lives.

What difference does knowing God make? It makes all the difference in the world; not only in this world, but in the world to come. Unlike the pagans of old, we are not left to our own imagination as to what God is like, what He demands from us, and who He is. Graciously and lovingly, in keeping with His character, God has revealed Himself to us. He wants us to know Him, love Him, be in fellowship with Him, serve Him, and bring Him glory through our lives.

Knowing God gives us purpose. It adds reason and rational to our lives. It tells us there is a God in heaven, seated on His throne, and not only does He care for us, but He created us for a purpose. Think of how hopeless the man or woman is who has no God in whom to trust. Consider the emptiness and vanity of life lived without knowledge of the God of the Bible. Knowing God assures us that to everything there is a season and a time, to every purpose under heaven. Life is no accident. We didn’t merely evolve. God made us. Wondrously and gloriously have we been made. Not in the image of an ape, but in the image of God Himself.

While there remains a certain mystery to God, that is, there is much about Him we do not understand; there is much about Him we can and do know. He is a person and we can know Him personally. We may not be able to know Him fully, but we can know Him truly. Indeed, we can know Him for who He is.
