The emphasis in the Bible is on knowing God, knowing Him so we can receive and return His love. There is a difference in knowing about a person and knowing a person. When we know about people we have to rely on what others say about them, and they could be wrong. The only way to get to know a person is to interact with them regularly. As we interact with them by conversation and the actions that come out of that, we get to know them for who and what they really are.
God is willing and wanting to make Himself known to us if we will just interact with Him in all the ways that He has provided. The main way that God has made Himself know is in Jesus Christ. God came and dwelt in a body like ours so we could see and know Him. Jesus is called THE WORD for He is the way God expressed Himself so we could come to know Him. “Peter Lord”
Heavenly Father, as I come to You on a daily basis in the Gospel of John, I ask that I will get to know Jesus Christ in such a way that I will come to a new level of trust, respect, and love for Him, and all that He did and is doing, so that I can live in such a way as to please You. John 4:24 says, “Jesus said, “those who worship God must worship Him in Spirit and in truth.” God bless your Tuesday!
