Get to Know God

As a parent, you want your child to know you, right? Do you make it complicated for her to do that? Of course not. She comes to know you by spending time with you. We get to know our friends by spending time with them. To know who God is, we must spend time with him.

God is a God of mystery, but he is not mysterious. He wants us to know him. He wants to have a relationship with us. So how do we make that happen?

  • Read the Bible—there are a number of translations to choose from that are much more understandable than the King James. Study Christ and you will learn who God is. Start with the New Testament.
  • Spend time quietly listening for his voice
  • Read other books about God—one I’ve been reading is The Knowledge of the Holy by A.W. Tozer
“Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good” (Psalm 34:8, NKJV).
