Knowledge Of God

Posted: December 28, 2015 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections

Recently someone thanked me for sharing my ‘vast’ knowledge of the faith and sharing all spiritual aspects which brought the members closer to God.

So I began to ponder what is it that I really know? How much have I really shared with anyone?

In my own journey, I went from 0 to 60 in 3 secs (the speed of a Ferrari) all because of my surrender to the Lord of God. He taught and guided me whether it be from Holy scripture, people or events. That is how my knowledge of Him and my faith grew.

The more I learned the more I realised I didn’t know. In other words in striving to know God and even about Him, no one can ever say they know and understand everything there is to know and understand. The day we stop learning is the day we die even if it is only a spiritual death.

Knowledge of God kept privately is superficial knowledge. One may know about Him but have no real relationship with Him.

For having true knowledge of Him is to share in His love. Such knowledge cannot be contained. The more it is shared or given away the more it is received and lived.

Hence I only know what I know received from Him, can only understand what I know by sharing it with others. I thereby live the experience and knowledge of Him received in my life for others. Amen
