Knowing God

Its easy to be dishonest in speaking of knowing God. Our cliché- ridden God-talk is seriously out of touch with our actual experience…..The good news is that God can be known by human beings, personally and experientially….It is personal knowing-knowing that begins with belief but is deep and through relationship….God’s intention is that we know divine love by experiencing it. Transformational knowing of God comes from the intimate, personal knowing of divine love. Knowing God also requires surrender..We must know the truth, we must love the truth we know and we must act accordingly to the measure of our love. Relationships develop when people spend time together. Spending time with God ought to be the essence of prayer. Spending time with Jesus allows us to ground our God-knowing in the concrete events of a concrete life. We can do this by meditation on meeting Jesus in the Gospel‘s and meditating on meeting God in the events of our life.
