Knowing God as He Reveals Himself

For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:6

Human beings are relational creatures. We are created to know and to relate to other people. Yet ours is a day of pain and broken relationships. So many are disillusioned by broken promises. Simply put, people are living with inner pain caused by other human beings.

There is good news for God’s people living amidst broken relationships in this life. His light shines and the “knowledge of the glory of God” in our Savior Jesus is a reality for us. Knowing God by faith is then a comfort to us in the darkness of this broken world. It is the faithful, never changing Lord who establishes this relationship and he keeps it with us eternally! Jesus’ death and resurrection for us assure us of a relationship with the Father of all mercies and God of all comfort that will have no end!

We begin now the season we call Epiphany as we explore the revelation of Jesus in different miracles and signs. The first sign is God’s chief revealing of himself in his Son Jesus Christ! So in a world so affected by sin we find that in Jesus, the true Human, there are no more broken promises! He grants us an “epiphany” of faith, revealing himself to us in a love that will last forever! Epiphany is a season of light, a season of revealing! God has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ!
