Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

Knowing God

"I thought that God was so big that none of us could actually know him, just that we needed to accept him into our homes and such. So, can we really know the endless fathomless of God?"

Einstein had an incredible mind. His wife apparently didn’t. But she knew Albert Einstein intimately.

When the Bible speaks of the intimate consummation of a marriage, it uses a very special word. It says that Adam knew his wife.

The Bible calls the Church "the Bride of Christ" (see Revelation 22:17). As Christians, we are "espou sed" (engaged) to Jesus Christ (see 2 Corinthians 11:2), and the day will come when consumation will take place. Jesus is coming for His beloved bride.

Back to Albert and his wife. She knew him, but she didn’t know his mind. The same is the case with the Christian's love relationship to God:

"O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counselor? Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen" (Romans 11:33-37).

I can't explain what it’s like to know God, but I can introduce you to Him. And the only way there can be a relationship between you and your Creator, is for you to repent and trust the Savior (see John 14:6).
