Author A. W. Tozer begins his book, The Knowledge of the Holy, with this assertion:
“What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.”
He goes on to say this: “We tend by a secret law of the soul to move toward our mental image of God.” Certainly his words reflect the truth in Psalm 115:8 concerning those who worship idols,
“Those who make them will become like them, everyone who trusts in them.”
If Tozer was right, then Martyn Lloyd-Jones was also right when he said, “Our supreme need is to know God” (God’s Ultimate Purpose [Baker], p. 342). He understood our need to know God well, to know Him deeply,
to know Him truly, as He is revealed in His Word. This is the truth that elevates the Bible in our hearts
and minds: God has chosen to reveal Himself to mankind through God-inspired writings.
He does not hide from us, but discloses His character and nature and plans clearly.
We can know God! And to know God is to possess eternal life.
"And this is eternal life, that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent."
