      Getting to know GOD,
      … that GOD, who seems so far away!

How do I truly get to know almighty God,
… how will I recognise Him and know who He really is,
… so that I can live a meaningful life,
and be at peace where I can put my trust in Him!

Sure I have repented and I think my life has changed,
… but somehow I still don’t feel that I really know God!

Well let’s look at what the Word says,
… who the Word is, and who God is.

      In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,
      and the Word was God.
      And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us,
      John 1:1,14

The Word clearly is God,
… Who became flesh and lived amongst us.
He is therefore the living expression of God in the flesh,
… Who came to express Who the Father is, to us!

      And we have known and believed the love that God has for us.
      God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God,
      and God in him.
      1 John 4:16

And how did Jesus express who the Father is?

      For God so loved the world that He gave His only son …
      John 3:16

Jesus is the living expression of the Father, of Grace Himself,
… doing for us what we cannot do for ourselves,
… and giving to us what we do not deserve!

      As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.
      If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love,
      just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.
      John 15:9-10

How do I do that?

      By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us.
      And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
      1 John 3:16

      Live love and you will know Love, because Love will be in you,
      … and you will know the Father, for He is Love!
