Is it possible to know what God is like?


Who Is God?

People from different backgrounds have many different ideas about what God is like. Some believe God to be distant and uninterested in what happens on Earth. Others see him as a judgmental figure waiting to catch them out and punish them for every little thing they do wrong.

What Does The Bible Say?

In God’s word, The Bible, he tells us many things we can know about himself. God created everything (Genesis 1:1), he loves us all (1 John 4:8) and he wants us to know him (John 17:3). However, the Bible also says we are separated from God by our sin. For us to know him in a close and intimate way, our sin must first be dealt with (Isaiah 59:2).

God’s Son

The Bible says that the primary way God makes himself known to us is through his Son (John 1:18), Jesus Christ. Jesus became a man, lived a perfect life and died on the cross for us. On the cross, he paid for our sin and can offer us a restored relationship with God as a result. You can receive this forgiveness and relationship if you accept Jesus Christ as your Saviour and put your trust in him.
