The way to know God.

February 15, 2018 by Dr. Jack Graham

“And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.”

–John 17:3

It’s an amazing thing to realize that we can know God. But do you know why it’s possible to know him? There’s really only one reason, and it’s because God wanted you and me to know him!

Now, some people have this concept of God that is more like the wizard in The Wizard of Oz. Do you remember when Dorothy, the cowardly lion, the tin man, and the scarecrow finally arrived in Oz? They faced a fearsome sight. There was thunder and lighting and the travelers were frightened for their lives. But then the little dog pulled back the curtain to reveal an ordinary man using tricks to seem powerful. The wizard didn’t want to be known for who he really was.

But God is not some powerless wizard. No! In his marvelous grace and love, God desires for you to truly know him and he wants to give you eternal life. That’s exactly why he sent Jesus to earth, so that you may “know the only true God, and Jesus Christ.”  

Do you long to know him? Are you searching?

Look for God in the life and person of Jesus and you will find him! That’s his promise to you. And knowing him will make your life worth living.

LOOK FOR GOD IN THE LIFE ANDPERSON OF JESUS AND YOU WILL FIND HIM!
