No one has seen God at any time, the only begotten Son who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.” John 1:9-18

Nobody knows who God is or what he thinks what he wants or what He will do or what He thinks about you, apart from Jesus who came to tell us about the Father. Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.” Jesus answered, “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you?”

Most people today construct God in their own image, and you had better not interfere with their preconceived notions of God, so they call, pray, worship, the wrong God.

Jesus came to His own Jews. They did not know Him. John the Baptist gave a testimony, and they rejected Him. Our Savior came to die to pay for our sins, but he also came to explain the Father to us. Jesus had both the knowledge and the authority to do this, because He is God‘s son, for us to know the Father is through the Son, whom he has revealed to us.

Read His word today and get to know the Father through Jesus’s life and put your trust in Him alone.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
