Know God by Knowing Jesus #225

Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.” Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? (John 14:8-9)

If you truly want to know God, then learn about Jesus. Listen to His words and consider His actions. By understanding Jesus you will understand the Father in heaven. He is Immanuel (“God with us”, Matt. 1:23). He is “the imagine of the invisible God”, the “brightness of His glory and the express image of His person” (Col. 1:15; Heb. 1:3). In Jesus “dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily” (Col. 2:9). All these Scriptures and more combine to persuade us of the deity of Jesus. Please do not say you know God if you do not know Jesus. Look closely at Jesus, and you will come to know God.
