Steps to knowing God
Because we Love Him, we make faith choices (I John 5:3).
Because we make faith choices, we still see Him in everything (Romans 8:28; John 8:56).
Because we see Him in everything, we will come to know His character (Hebrews 13:5).
Because we know His character, we can entrust ourselves to Him (Philippians 3:8).
Because we can entrust ourselves to Him totally, we are going to know His life through us (2 Corinthians 4:10).
Because we have His life through us (2 Corinthians 4:10).
Because we have His life as others will see Jesus in us (3 John 3).
