One of the greatest pleasures of life is to know people and to have friends. Knowing God and having His friendship derives the greatest joy that any human being can have.
Many of the ancient civilizations believed that the sun was a God, but God is far superior to any of His creatures, as a matter of fact the sun being as big as it is, is only like a speck of dust in this huge material universe that we know.
Without the sun the earth could not exist, since it must turn around it and receive its light and warmth.
We donít have to look at sun to know that it is there, we can feel its warmth, we are able to see because it illuminates the things we see. When it is dark we can see nothing. †All creatures are aware of the sun. As human beings we have the option to look up and acknowledge that the sun is a great part of creation.
The sun plays a very important role in our existence, but going further into the spiritual part of our existence we begin to know that God is at the highest level above creation, we must admit that without Him we would be nothing.
In a similar way that the earth depends on the sun, we depend on God. We must turn around Him; He must be the centre of our lives. We must receive His light and warmth to exist. Without God we could not exist, creation as we know it could not exist, since creation comes from God and nothing exists that has not been created by God.
We donít have to wonder where God is, since we know that he is all around us; in fact, in Him we live, we move and have our beings. (Acts 17:28)
We live because he has given us life; we move because we have the gift of movement, we have our being in Him which is a true miracle. Who can create life but God?
Then we have the option to know that God who created us if we look up spiritually acknowledging the greatness of His being.
The material man does not look up; he belongs to the world, he only looks down to the world. He lives for material things; riches, honours, power and pleasures, things that only are available during our short material existence. In his pride he does not need to look up to anyone nor to God.
But how can we know God? We start knowing God by acknowledging that He exists, by accepting that He is our creator, by informing ourselves through the Holy Scriptures, by having faith in Him and responding to His benevolence with our prayers and good works.
The best way to acquire something is first to have and ardent desire for it, in the same way we must desire to know God. Desire is like a fire that burns within, if we stimulate that fire with our interest in God, with spiritual reading, with prayers to the Holy Spirit, God will respond to our desire and we will experience the joy of knowing Him.
God responds to our desire to know Him by sending us His Holy Spirit to teach us about Him and about ourselves. This holy knowledge of God is the first thing in the plan of God for us, so that knowing Him we learn to love Him and serve Him.
A common thing in all the saints is that they knew God in a very special way. It is written in the Holy Bible that Enoch walked with God. (Genesis 5:22) Moses talked to God and God talked to Him, they had a beautiful relationship.
All the prophets throughout the Holy Scriptures had a very deep knowledge of God, they listened to His voice, they feared and respected Him and they also presented to Him their petitions and prayers. On this desire to know God and to possess Him we must have the attitude of John the Baptist (John 3:30) He must increase, but I must decrease. Or in the words of Saint Paul, it is not I who lives but Christ who lives in me (Galatians 2:20)
But God is not only for the saints. A lot of people fail to know God well because they place Him far away from themselves. They forget that He made us temples of His Holy Spirit. (1 Corinthians 3:16) They forget that Jesus came to teach us to become like Him who is God. His desire is that we abide in Him so that He can abide in us, and we may be united (John 15:4-6) He has taught us that He is the way to the Father; He has confirmed that He is the truth and He has taught us that He is our life. (John 14:6)
Knowledge of the Holy Scriptures is knowledge of God. Knowledge of Jesus is knowledge of God.
The Heavens were open and the voice of the Heavenly Father was heard saying: This is my Son, my beloved, in whom I am well pleased, listen to Him. (Matthew 17:5)
By listening to Jesus, by following his teachings we start a beautiful relationship with God, we know Him the way He wants us to know Him, through His beloved Son.
Before his death on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins, Jesus promised that He would not leave us orphans. He left us His mother to be our Heavenly Mother and He sent us the Holy Spirit to be our helper and our teacher.
When we know God and establish a solid relationship with Him, we can trust Him and we can easily ask what we need with the assurance that He will respond to our prayers.
