When you know God, life is sweeter, more beautiful, and fulfilling. You can experience His love and holiness that refreshes your soul and stirs your hopes. God has found a way for us to relate to Him in terms we can understand. His name is Jesus. When we consider Jesus and the amazing way He served His Father, we begin to see how God desires to know us and relate to us.
After we know Jesus, we begin to see that certain people around us actually resemble Him and live their lives in the hope that they might reveal God to people around them.
Perhaps it's the other way around, where the person resembles Jesus who is the image of God, so our first awareness comes from holy people who know God. That sounds easy. Anyone can know God that way. What a plan.
1 Kings 8:60 (MSG)
60 Then all the people on earth will know God is the true God; there is no other God.
