John 1:1-5 (NIV)
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it.
How do we know someone? It is by their words. What is in a man will come out. When we date we spend time with someone listening to them, studying them, so we might know them. We know God by His word. His word and He are one, you cannot separate them. In the same way, we are known by our words. Relationships fall apart because we stop listening and studying one another.
We stop knowing one another for a lack of understanding. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Want to know Him? Read, study, and hide His word in your heart. The same goes with your spouse. Pastor Jeffery Lane
