Searching for God

As long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to learn more about God. As a child, I wondered about this powerful being who did all the marvelous things I read about in the Bible. Some say look at what God created to learn about him. The apostle Paul did say what God made reveals its Creator (Romans 1:20), but it’s like trying to know an artist by looking at his or her work. You can figure out some aspects of the person’s character perhaps, but it doesn’t really let you know the person. To know someone you have to get acquainted with the actual person and even then it may take some time. And that’s what I’ve learned in my search for God. There’s only one way to know who God is and that’s to go directly to the source, Jesus Christ. He is God. He said, “Whoever has seen me has seen the Father” (John 14:9). And, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am” (John 8:58). Whatever we read or hear about who God is, our reference point should always be our living, personal Savior.
