Wondering About God?

By Michael Elmore

Have you ever wondered about God? I mean really wondered about him? That’s good because that means that you have begun a spiritual journey and that you have a sincere desire to find God.  So as you are wondering about God you may be relieved and excited to discover that God has provided several ways for us to learn more about him.  Besides this, God promises us that “everyone who seeks will find (Matt. 7:8).” You can depend on that!  

One of those ways is that God has revealed himself to us is through his Son Jesus. Jesus said that he and God are One and that if you have seen him, then you have seen God. The best way to learn about God then is to learn about Jesus by reading concerning his life in the Bible. Open up your mind to learning more about God.

Another way that God reveals himself is though his actions. One of the greatest things God reveals to us through Jesus’ life is that He is Love. God loves you and me so much that he acted by sending Jesus to earth to give his life for us. Jesus said that no one can prove his love in any better way than by laying his life down for them. Open up your heart and let God’s love touch you deep inside.

One of the most important ways to learn about God is by talking to him and getting to know him. Can you imagine trying to get to know someone but never even talking to them? Praying then is crucial to someone wondering about God. It’s the best way to get to know him personally. You may be surprised to learn that God is longing to talk with you. Open up your spirit and discover that God wants to know you and that he is vitally concerned for you.
