Can You Know God?

“He [God] has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. He [Jesus] is the image of the invisible God… and in Him, all things consist… that in all things He may have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness [of God] should dwell.”

Colossians 1:13-15, 17-19, emphasis added

Ponder This

God is Spirit, invisible—unfathomable—unapproachable. How are we going to know God? Jesus is the visible image of the invisible God. Jesus makes the invisible God known.

You will know God not by reason, not by religion, not by ritual. You’re going to know God only by revelation. Jesus Christ came to reveal God to you. You can never fully know God the Father apart from God the Son, “…who is the image of the invisible God.” All of God was in Jesus Christ. He is the expressed image of God.

Practice This

Jesus Christ is there to be found. If you desire to know the very Son of God, He has said, “And you will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord…” (Jeremiah 29:13-14a). Seek Him in His Word, where He will reveal Himself to you.
