Man was born to fellowship with God.
The supreme purpose of man is to know Him.
Someone may ask, what is God like? What is the Father, Son and Holy Spirit like?
He is the most wonderful, most beautiful Person in the universe.
The only true God is an eternal mystery and revelation.
He has revealed Himself as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
He is so glorious, so wonderful, so powerful – and infinitely, eternally more – He is beyond human comprehension and words.
Those who find Him and make it to heaven will be in awe of Him, forever.
He is indescribable, incomprehensible, unfathomable . . . omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent . . . life, love, eternity . . . holy . . . and infinitely more.
Yet, He has revealed Himself.
He is no longer a mystery.
He is available.
He is a present reality.
The only true God, the infinite, eternal mystery, can be summed up in one word, one name, one Person: Jesus.
