John 1v18-5

How can I know God? I know people by seeing them and hearing them. I watch them and I listen to them and get to know them through my eyes and ears. But how can I know God whom I cannot see or hear.

God makes himself known through creation, providence, conscience, and the Bible. But he has chosen to make himself known and knowable most fully and clearly in Jesus Christ. So the simple answer to “How can I know God?” is, “In Jesus.” As the Apostle John put it: No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father’s side, he has made him known (1:18).

Now, of course, we cannot see Jesus with our eyes or hear Jesus with our ears. But we do have a perfect record of his life and death in the New Testament. Let’s take time to know God through Jesus.
