The most important thing in all of life is knowing God. Jesus said, “And this is eternal life, that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent” (John 17:3). The greatest issue today in our world and many in our churches is a lack of the true knowledge of God. The prophet Hosea writes in chapter 4 that the people of God had rejected the knowledge of God and because they lacked in that knowledge, they were being destroyed.
If our understanding of God is incorrect or flawed we will reap the results from it in life, which for many leads to destruction. Our knowledge of who God is will determine how we think and act. Therefore it is of great importance to search the scriptures and understand what is true about God. The attributes of God are the characteristics of God,
which speak the truth about who God is.
