We want to know God. That’s why we seek to learn about Jesus. But knowing Jesus better also helps us to know how we ourselves ought to think and act in this world.
Jesus is not merely the God we are to worship, He is the God we are to imitate. Therefore, to learn about Jesus is to learn about the way we should live.
The Bible tells us that we were made in God’s image. The less we know about God, the less we can reflect that image.
We go to the Bible to learn about Jesus – but we gain so much more. We learn about ourselves – at least the true selves our Creator intended us to be.
