The LORD God created man and woman to have a relationship with each other, with Himself and His beautiful creation to see and enjoy all the beautiful things around us. Humanity’s sins separated us from the LORD God and turned a loving relationship into one filled with disobedience and hate. (Romans 5:10) But the LORD our God through His only begotten Son Jesus Christ reached down to deliver humanity from sin and death because He wants to restore His relationship with humankind. Therefore, the LORD God through Jesus Christ created a bridge that allows humanity an opportunity to relate and to speak to Him.
To have a relationship with another you must have knowledge of the other person. Our obedience, love and service to the LORD God comes when we know more about God as our creator who love and care for us. We can get to know the Lord God through knowing Jesus Christ, and His death and resurrection that gives us direct access to the LORD God, God the Father. Now we can know the LORD God and the Lord Jesus Christ in two ways:
- Through the Word of God
- Through the work of the Holy Spirit Living in each believer born of the water and of the Spirit.
Scripture Verses for Meditation
“Thus says the LORD: Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, let not the mighty man glory in his might, nor let the rich man glory in his riches; but let him who glories glory in this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the LORD, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth.

When we are trying to understand God, we must remember that He is transcendent and infinite. He transcends far beyond our knowledge and imagination. This means that we have limits to how far our understanding of the LORD our God can go. For the LORD God is above and far beyond the universe He created. (Psalm 13:1; 22:24)
The Lord God is infinite means His knowledge and understanding is far beyond our standards.
