“If you have been able to fully comprehend God, you have comprehended something else instead of God. If we have been able to comprehend Him in our thinking, we have deceived ourselves." – Augustine
All study of God must come from hearts and minds trained in humility – by those who realize the enormity of the task and their place as creatures before God. We can speak safely of God only on our knees.
In Glimpses of Our God, Dr. Jo Ann Davidson paints vivid word pictures of a Holy God. She states, “Unless a person is truly faced with God’s piercing holiness, there will never be an adequate understanding of the radical emergency of the Fall or how horrifying sin truly is nor will there be an accompanying appreciation of the equally radical action that the Holy God makes to remedy human sinfulness.”
Ultimately, the more we know about Him, the more our love for Him will deepen and intensify, leading to adoration and worship on a grander level.
