Everybody Can Know God

Everybody Can Know God

Before reading this devotional watch this video from Senior Pastor Jason Berry.

For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.

– Romans chapter 1:verses 19-20

We are created in the image of God to be in a deep and personal relationship with Him. A relationship with God isn’t to just know about Him, it’s knowing who He is! It’s similar to any relationship we have in life. The only difference is God already knows everything about you, so it’s time for you to intentionally know God. The journey might sound intimidating, but we promise it’s worth it! The most important piece to know about this journey is that it takes years to grow into your relationship with God. There’s no quick trick to knowing God, and your yes is the starting point.

The beauty of a relationship with God is that He desires to connect with you, and He’s placed in us a desire to connect with Him. Outside of a relationship with Him, we try to fill that desire with other relationships, material possessions, or work—basically anything that gives us a sense of purpose and fulfillment. So, when we say yes to God, we start to see how our desires are uniquely met with Him. Because of that, a relationship with God doesn’t look exactly the same for everyone. Some people may connect with God and see Him most plainly in nature, alone in a quiet room, or during a Sunday service. It’s worth reflecting on where you feel most at peace with and connected to God as you begin your journey of knowing Him.

As your journey begins, we encourage you to attend one of our campuses regularly and make it your Church home. Simply showing up to worship and hearing a teaching is the best way to pour into your relationship with God and be poured into by your church family. Remember, Know God is just the foundation of relationship with God.
