The difference between what is and what you believe can be infinitely apart from each other because of one thing: truth. I am most aware of this dilemma as it relates to truth about God and what haters of him often say. But reality is something worthy of relying on and truth a comfort for me, despite what haters may say. Let me explain why and how this relates to God.
Truth about God is not necessarily the same as truth about your tradition. It doesn’t matter if you’re a satanist, atheist, or Reformed theologian. Truth is quite unforgiving about what you believe because knowledge that embodies truth is about what is; and what is, is not always what one says it is.
And with that said I know that I know some things about God and that is comforting and helps my faith when I am reminded, daily, that I don’t know it all. But I know the One whom all is from and too and that eases the aspects of my life that are still void of valuable knowledge and experience.
2nd Peter 3:17-18
May you be blessed today and encouraged that the journey to never stop learning about Jesus is an adventure in the knowledge of the truth and the truth will set you free, despite ourselves or the occasional hater.
Be of good cheer, he has conquered the world!
Jesus is, therefore God is; and I know some things about Jesus so I can trust him, even when I don’t know it all.
