Diligently Seeking God

Carefulness in Speaking of God (April 8)


“And so it was, after the Lord had spoken these words to Job, that the Lord said to Eliphaz the Temanite, ‘My wrath is aroused against you and your two friends, for you have not spoken of Me what is right, as My servant Job has’” (Job 42:7).

Lifelong Learning About God (April 7)

Real Theology (April 6)

God is the only eternal, self-existent Being. Of all the things that exist, only He is uncreated — everything else that exists has been caused to ... Read More »

The Declaration of God (April 2)


“No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him” (John 1:18). IT IS A STUNNING FACT THAT GOD HAS MADE HIMSELF KNOWN TO MANKIND THROUGH HIS SON JESUS CHRIST. Having been created in His image, we have a desperate, undeniable need to know the God ... Read More »
