What do you think about God?

Toward the end of several recent You’re Included interviews on gci.org, the interviewees are asked the question: what would you most like people to know about God? One answered how much God loves us; another that God is right beside us all the time.

A.W. Tozer said the most important thing about us is what we think about God. For several years, I’ve been trying to find out more about him. I want to know who he really is, not rely on other’s opinions and misinformation from people with a grudge or an agenda. The Bible holds clues to his character and nature in every book.

To me, the most important thing to know about God is that he isn’t who I thought he was. For many years, I had God wrapped up in a neat little box. That box was smashed about 17 years ago and thankfully, has stayed smashed. What is coming together is knowledge of who God is as revealed by Jesus through the Holy Spirit. Because knowing God is eternal life (John 17:3), it’s important to not try and fit him in box of our own ideas or an image of who we think he should be.

What do you think about God? Maybe it’s time to rethink – he may not be who you think he is.

  1. Tammy…continue the great writing. Loved your use of Tozer’s quote: “the most important thing about us is what we think about God”. I am in the midst of giving a 9 part sermon series that comes from a great book entitled: “God As He Longs For You To See Him” by Chip Ingram. He uses Tozer’s quote (and several other quotes from him) as a basis for our coming to see our God more correctly — as God (Father, Son, Spirit) desire us to see them. Great book and my congregations are finding this a wonderful study.
