God Has Revealed Himself to Us

Although some people doubt or deny God’s existence, God has clearly revealed Himself to us. There are two basic ways in which God has revealed Himself to us.

The first way that God has revealed Himself to us is called general revelation. General revelation refers to what nature and the human conscience tell us about God (see Psalm 19:1-6; Romans 2:14-15). God’s general revelation of Himself show us that He is great because He is all-powerful and eternal (see Romans 1:18-20). The beauty of sunrises, sunsets, trees, flowers, mountains, waterfalls, and oceans and the rain that God provides for earth show us that God exists and He is good (see Matthew 5:45; Acts 14:17). The human conscience not only tells us what is right and wrong, but also that God exists. We all know that killing, stealing, lying, and committing adultery are wrong because God has given us a conscience. Our sense of right and wrong provides strong evidence for God’s existence.

The second way that God has revealed Himself to us is called special revelation. Special revelation refers to what the Bible, Jesus, and miraculous events tell us about God. The Bible, Jesus, and miraculous events demonstrate to us that God exists and that He is powerful and perfect. The Bible is inspired by God and without error, just as God is pure and holy (see Psalm 19:7; Isaiah 6:3; 2 Timothy 3:16). Jesus is the sinless Son of God, who enables us to be forgiven by God and spend eternity with God we trust in his work on the cross alone for eternal life in heaven (see John 3:16; Romans 3:23; 5:8; 6:23; 10:9; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Colossians 1:13-14). Miraculous events such as Jesus’ resurrection make it clear that God exists and that He loves us even though we don’t deserve His love.

We know that God exists and that He is good and great. In my book The Life Changer, one of the five tests I use to evaluate our worldviews and beliefs is called the divine glory test. The divine glory test enables us to determine if our beliefs about God are true. Our beliefs about God are true if they are theologically sound, and our beliefs about God are theologically sound if they provide us with sufficient reasons for serving and worshipping God. In order for God to be worthy of our worship, He must be both great and good. The Bible reveals that God is great and good and thus worthy of our worship and service.

For much more about the divine glory test, please read The Life Changer. The divine glory test is a very helpful tool for us to know if what we believe about God is true. Having true beliefs about God makes it possible for us to worship and serve our wonderful Creator.

    1. I write my own blog posts. I do not use any AI content. The article you sent is good, but AI won’t allow you to have your own voice as an author and express things with your own personality and in your own words. You could pray and ask God if He wants you to use AI content or not. I hope this helps.
