There is one problem in the world: people don't know God. Many think they know God, but have been deceived. The religious leaders of Jesus' day thought they knew God, but when He talked to them they called Him a devil.
This primary problem is the cause of every other problem. All sin is the result of people not knowing God. For if people knew God, they would love Him, respect Him, want to be like Him, and desire to please Him.
1 JOHN 4:8 But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
People who don't know God's character and nature think He is unreasonable or a hard master. The truth is God is the most loving, giving, unselfish being in existence. Everything He does is for our benefit.
JEREMIAH 9:24 but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the LORD."
If you want to know what God is truly like, just look at Jesus. Examine the way Jesus acted in the four Gospels and you will understand how God acts.
JOHN 1:18 No one has ever seen God. But the one and only Son is himself God and is near to the Father's heart. He has revealed God to us.
If you think God is different than Jesus of Nazareth, you are deceived. Jesus perfectly revealed the Father God to us. All the revelation we had of God before was incomplete.
Through many years I have experienced the wonderful privilege of knowing God. God is good! He is faithful! The better you get to know Him the better you will like Him.
PSALM 34:8 Taste and see that the LORD is good. Taste and see for yourself!
Walk with God and you will not regret it!
