God refuses to be known as an object of knowledge. God cannot be known like we know a tree or a book. God can only be known as a life that encompasses all of life. It is a deep reciprocal knowing, a faith knowing that leads to knowing as fully as we are known. It is a participatory enlightenment by His Spirit rather than a privatized knowing of an object of creation. Knowing God is an experience of God that is deep and wide enough to hold together all other experiences in life. It is a paradox in that it becomes a relationally intimate certainty of Love that also includes a vastness of what is yet to be revealed.
Theology can teach about God. Can you see how there can be a knowledge of God without really knowing Him?
In the experience of God and His love, are you observing the uniqueness of how He delivers that same love through your life?
