Thoughts for Your Weekend: The Business of Knowing God
Friday, April 11, 2014
The focus from Behold Your God: Rethinking God Biblically this week was Beholding Your God in the Face of Jesus Christ.
Over the last two weeks we've been studying what it is to know God and how God is in the business of making Himself known.
The question was raised: When you go to Scripture, do you go there asking God what He is revealing about Himself in the words you are reading?
So often, I go to Scripture looking for the hand of God at work and the finger of God pointing out His will in the lives of His people.When it comes down to it, those things are there, but there is more, The Bible is the very unveiling of WHO God is.
The Bible is the Word of God sent to unveil the person of God. Jesus Christ is called "The Word" and He too was sent to unveil the person of God.
This weekend, whatever pages you find yourself reading in the Bible, go there to meet God. Say to Him, "God, what are you revealing about yourself through these words?"
May your spirit be captivated by the very God who is the Creator and Sustainer of all that is. May your soul thirst for more of His Word because it is the means by which you taste yet more of Him.
God calls His people to know Him. Let's go to His Word to meet Him, to see Him, and to be satisfied in Him!
