How Can I Know God
|John 14 (NKJV™)|
|7||"If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him."|
|8||Philip said to Him, "Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us."|
|9||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'?|
|10||"Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.|
|11||"Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.|

What a thought—that a mere human being can know the transcendent, omnipotent Creator! The agnostic asserts this as being an impossible task. The atheist insists that the very idea of such a pursuit is arrogant and purely metaphysical. But that's one of the reasons Jesus came—to reveal God's character and nature—perfectly! In the upper room, on the last night that Jesus spent with His disciples, the subject of knowing God by knowing Jesus becomes pivotal.
The Upper Room Discourse was Jesus' final message to His closest followers before He went to the cross. After washing their feet and giving them the example of how to love and serve one another, He taught what it really means to be His disciples. Pastor Skip Heitzig teaches how we can learn to face situations similar to those encountered by Jesus' disciples.
