Answer: To know God, you must receive Jesus Christ as your personal Savior (Acts 16:31; John 3:15-18; John 3:36). “For while we were yet sinner’s Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
“For there is one God and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus who gave Himself a ransom for all” (2 Timothy 2:5).
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through me” (John 14:6).
Jesus Christ died for you in your place on the Cross of Calvary. Trust Christ’s death in your place and be saved from God’s wrath right now. John 3:18; Romans 5:8; Acts 16:31.
God will not let anything separate you from His Love (Romans 8:26-38).
If you do not have a “Study Bible” you need to get one so you can begin basic training on the way to a mature believer serving Christ. God will richly bless you by His Word in you. Be blessed! Follow Christ through fields of Grace.
“How then shall they call on Him (Christ) in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in Him (Christ) of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?” (Romans 10:14)
“So faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God” (Romans 10:17).
“Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth“ (2 Timothy 2:15).
“By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear” (Hebrews 11:3). “But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him” (Hebrews 11:3).
TRUTH: that which is trustworthy, genuine, conforming to reality and true reality, which is in Christ – priceless and precious.
“For in Him (Christ) we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28 a). “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handiwork” (Psalms 19:1). “For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His Eternal Power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse” (Romans 1:20).
So, we can look to the heavens and across the landscapes because day and night the silent symphony of creation sings praises to the Lord.
“But ask now the beasts, and let them teach you; and the birds of the heavens and let them tell you. Or speak to the earth, and let it teach you; and let the fish of the sea declare it to you. Who among all these does not know That the hand of the lord has done this, In whose hand is the life of every living thing, And the breath of all mankind “(Job 12:7-10)?
“Oh, the depth of the riches both of wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways! For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory, Amen (Romans 11:33, 36).
“But, just as it is written, things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, And which have not entered the heart of man, All that God has prepared for those who love Him.” (1 Corinthians 2:9)
“We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ. For this purpose I also labor, striving according to His power which mightily works within me” (Colossians 1:28, 29).
Jesus said to the Father: “Sanctify (set apart) them through thy truth; thy Word is Truth” (John 17:17). (We are set apart for God’s work by God’s Word of Truth in us).
The Bible is the sure word of truth:
“We have a more sure word of prophecy (Scripture); where unto you do well that you take heed (pay attention, obey and believe), as unto a light that shines in a dark place, (compared to Heaven the earth is a dark place), until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation (not of men). For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit” ( 2 Peter 1:19-21).
“He who gives attention to the Word shall find good, and blessed is he who trusts in the Lord” (Proverbs 16:20).
The Bible is the Mind of Christ:
“For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ” (scripture), (1 Corinthians 2:16).
“All scripture is given by inspiration (God-breathed), and is profitable for doctrine (teaching), for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect (mature), thoroughly furnished unto all good works” (2 Timothy 3:16,17).
“For the Word of God is quick (alive or living) and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner (critic) of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12).”
“Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways” (Romans 11:33)!
“For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope” (our hope is reinforced) (Romans 15:4).
