If we are going to see God accurately, we have to see Him as He has revealed Himself to us. Psalm 19:1 tells us, “The heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament shows his handywork.” Everyone on earth who sees the sky, stars, and the sunset has seen the creativity of God. It does not hurt us to sit and consider nature, but this will only give us a partial picture of who God is. Creation can stir us to know God more, but if we want to know more of God, we must turn to His Word. John 1:1 says, “In the Beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” God is the original communicator, and He created us as receptors of His Word. It is essential that we understand that in order to understand Who God really is, we can not do so only with our senses, we must do so with our minds, as we embrace the truths of God’s Word. Yet God’s written Word is not an end in itself. The continuation of John’s thought in John 1:1 is seen in John 1:14, “The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father), full of grace and truth.” If we don’t meet Jesus Christ, in and through the Scriptures, we have missed the central reason God gave us His Word. We need to invest time in pondering who God is and what He has done for us. Doing so is the greatest resource a person can acquire.
