Knowledge of the Holy
“What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” - A.W. Tozer in The Knowledge of the Holy

What incredible insight Tozer displayed when saying this. What we think about God forms the foundation for everything else we think. It is the underpinning of our worldview.

Most every false doctrine can trace its roots ultimately back to a false understanding of who God is. Nothing is more important in your study of scripture than to acquire as much knowledge and wisdom concerning the nature of God as you can. Theology after all is the study of God.

How do we discover who God really is?
1. Prayer - Ask Him to reveal Himself to you. Ask Him to tear down any misconceptions and false constructs you may have.
2. Study His word - Nowhere else is God revealed as plainly as in His word. Study the scriptures, memorize them, meditate on them. God will speak to you through His word.
3. Read the classics - Read the works of theologians of the past. The one thing that should jump out at you more than anything else is the high view of God they held to.

We need to reacquaint ourselves with our God. If we have even a glimpse of the holiness and majesty of Christ we can't help but respond like Isaiah in his vision (Isaiah 6:5) or Peter in the boat with Christ (Luke 5:8).

I married my beautiful bride Katherine back in May of 1998. Since then, we have been blessed with 4 wonderful kids (three girls and a boy). We have lived here in Rome since 1993 when Katherine and I met as freshmen at Berry College. I teach Math at one of the elementary schools here in town. Thanks for stopping by.
