The Bible says that God is Spirit (John 4:24) and that no
one has ever seen him and lived (Exodus 33:20). So then how can we, being human
and not spirit, ever know what he is like?
While it is true that God is hidden from us in many
ways, he has still to a great extent revealed himself to us. He has revealed
himself in all of creation. When we see the world around us we get a glimpse of
God’s creative nature, his infinity of tastes, and his incomprehensible
God has also revealed himself to us in Scripture.
Through the reliable written Word of God we get deep insights into:
his infinite characteristics
his relational heart
his holy nature
And because he has revealed himself to us in the
person of Jesus Christ we see God with skin on.
