Our Ability to Know Him

God and Us – Introduction

Is the God of the Bible involved in the affairs of the human race? Can a human being actually know the living God in a personal way? If so, then to what degree is this possible? What does God require of a person? Must someone have great faith to please God? Are there certain things we must do to gain God’s favor?

This book looks at these and other questions about God, His involvement with humanity, and His relationship to us as individuals. We look at issues regarding God’s care and concern for us as the extent that a human being can know the living God.

The truth about God, the eternal destiny of human beings, and the way to eternal life, are subjects of absolute importance. What we know about God and how we think about Him, are going to determine how we live our everyday lives. Therefore, a study such as this has enormous practical implications for each of us. Jesus said,

If you know these things, you are blessed if you do them. (John 13:17 NASB)

Consequently, it is not enough to learn truths about God; we must also do them. The truths we learn about God are to be lived out in our lives.

The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
