The Truth

I hear so many people say that they are seeking the truth about God as if the truth about God is a mythical journey. It is not. I also hear a lot of people tell me about God and readily admit they have never read the Bible. Isn’t that like telling people about George Washington or Martin Luther King without reading their respective biography? It wouldn’t be correct. It would merely be what you heard others say without any examination of your own. I suspect some of what you would hear would be fact while other would be fiction. So where does that leave you with your quest to know the true God?

The Bible, the account of the true God, gives a road map to develop a relationship with Him through His son Jesus the Christ of Nazareth. I am only going to share a very brief glimpse at what it says about Him. Prayerfully it will be enough to get you to ask God to reveal Himself to you.

The Bible gives the words of Jesus in Matthew 7:7-11:

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!    (ESV)

Jesus’ words are simple ask God and God will provide the answer. The only requirement is a sincere heart – seek and you will find. Seek speaks of a genuine desire to know the true God. Is your desire to know the true God genuine? Or is it something you need to get to one of these days. I do not know your heart, only God and you do; however, I encourage you to seek God in prayer asking Him to reveal Himself to you.

The Bible teaches in 2 Peter 3:9, ““The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is long suffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.”   This verse says a lot of things about getting to know the true God. The most important word in this verse is “all.”  God wants us all to know Him. Jesus taught us in Matthew that everyone who asks receives, and that he who seeks finds and that the door will be opened to him who knocks.

Are you following what is going on here?

God wants us all to know Him so we will not be condemned to an eternity in Hell. He wants us all to spend eternity with Him. How can you know the true God? The Bible teaches that if you ask Him sincerely to reveal Himself to you that He will. Do you really want to know the true God? Ask God to reveal Himself to you? He will.
