There’s much about God we don’t know. For a society that craves knowledge and desires to fully understand things, what we don’t know about God can cause frustration. This keeps many people from embracing God.
They want all their questions answered before they say “Yes” to Jesus and follow him. But that’s not faith; that’s a sure thing – and we need to live by faith.
The Bible reveals some truths about God, while keeping other aspects secret. It’s easy to fixate on what we don’t know, frustrated over questions and a lack of clarity on things hidden. But this misses the point.
There are things we do know about God, things the Bible teaches us. Let’s focus on them. In these areas, God expects us to do what he says.
We’re not supposed to worry about what we don’t know, but we do need to obey him in what we do know.
A lifelong student of the Bible, Peter DeHaan, PhD, wrote the 1,000-page website ABibleADay.com to encourage people to explore the Bible. His main blog and many books urge Christians to push past the status quo and reconsider how they practice their faith in every area of their lives.
