The impulse to know God

Signal – Response.

The impulse to know God.

I wonder if its a reflexive action?

But I know the impulse to know God can be denied.  It can be ignored.  It can be covered up.

Just like the impulse to pick my nose in public.

Signal – Response.

Is God signaling to us?

He’s called the “Great I AM,” the same “yesterday, today, and tomorrow,”

The Alpha and Omega — the beginning and the end.

When I read the Scripture’s story I hear Him signalling.

The signals to know God are coming from Him and they are all around us.

And every once in a while we may say honestly with Philip, a man who spent several years with Jesus,

“Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied.”

Are you satisfied with Jesus’ answer?

9Jesus replied, “Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and yet you still don’t know who I am? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father! So why are you asking me to show him to you? 10Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words I speak are not my own, but my Father who lives in me does his work through me. 11Just believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me. Or at least believe because of the work you have seen me do.  John 14:9-11
