According to John 17:3 we were made to know God. Jeremiah 9:23-24 says “Thus saith the LORD, let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches, but let him that glories glory in this, that he understands and knows [God].” Once we become aware that the main business that we are her for is to know God, most of life’s problems fall into place of their own accord. What makes life worthwhile is having a big enough objective, to capture our imagination and lay hold of our allegiances. When we speak of knowing God, we are using a verbal formula, and formula’s are like cheques; they are no use unless we know how to cash them. What are we talking about when we use the phrase “knowing god?” A special sort of emotion — shivers down the back? a dreamy, off-the-ground, floating feeling? Tingling thrills and exhilaration, such as drug-takers seek? Or is knowing God a special sort of intellectual experience” Does one hear a voce? See a vision Find strange trains of thoughts coursing through one’s mind? Knowing God is more than some sort of existential experience, knowing God is about understanding how He has revealed himself in the pages of His Word. It is about having a relationship with Him, and having Him know who we are. The power of that relationship is that it is God, not us, who established that relationship. Think of it, God loves us so much that He has chosen to add us into His family, and He has chosen to reveal Himself to us through the pages of His word! We would do well to take time today, to seek to understand who He is, for He will aid us in our understanding.
