Do We Know God?
Finishing up the thought about memory and what is in your mind. 1 Corinthians 2:16 says “For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.” It means we are to know the will of the Father and the Word of God: then we are able to conform to His nature and to His image, so when we think, it is like Him thinking; when we speak, it is like Him speaking; and when we act, it is like Him acting so it is the totality of the restoration of a man and a woman of God.
What does it mean to know the will of the Father? When I participated in Evangelism Explosion, we learned that knowing is just head knowledge. I have met him. I know who he is but knowing doesn’t necessarily mean that I know what he is about. When we know God, Christ, & the Holy Spirit do we have a relationship with him? Do we know what pleases him or gives him displeasure? The Bible teaches that “sin” separates us from God. The Bible also teaches that if we “sin” we can not be a friend of God.
