Knowing God: The Truth About the Gospel

It’s easy in these modern times to know a lot about a person without actually knowing them.  Scrolling through my Facebook feed the other day, this truth stood out starkly.  I noted the many people I had only a surface level acquaintance with.  Often, I knew where they went on their last vacation, what sports their kids played, where they worked, etc.- but that’s not the same the thing as really knowing them.

Knowing God- and the Truth About the Gospel

To really know someone, you have to go beyond the intellectual/informational level and connect, volitionally and emotionally, as well. To me, this means there is a merging of experiences, an intentional, two-way movement towards each other, an understanding of their mannerisms and quirks, their vulnerabilities and motivations- and to love them, flaws and all.
