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]
(Colossians 1:13-15, 17-19, emphasis added)
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.
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.
