Can you by searching find out God? can you find out the Almighty to perfection?
A knowledge of God is necessary. It is important to have strong faith in God.
I. I KNOW THERE IS A GOD, BECAUSE HE HAS REVEALED HIMSELF TO MEN. In all ages God has spoken to men, and given them a knowledge of Himself. All along the ages God was constantly speaking to men, and revealing Himself to His people. As large numbers of these men gave their lives as witnesses for God's revelation, I believe their testimony, and am aided in searching to know God for myself.
II. BECAUSE HE HAS REVEALED HIMSELF TO ME. In three ways —
1. In His Holy Word.
2. In the world in which I live.
3. In my own heart, and soul, and life.
III. BECAUSE HE MADE THE WORLD. It could not have made itself.
IV. BECAUSE I CAN SEE HIS WISDOM IN THE HARMONY AND DESIGN WHICH EXIST IN THE WORLD. Wherever you see design, you may be sure there has been a designer. Things do not happen by chance.
V. I AM CONFIRMED IN MY KNOWLEDGE OF GOD WHEN I LEARN THAT MEN EVERYWHERE HAVE BELIEVED IN GOD. Go wherever you will, you will find men who believe in God. Rather than be without God, men will make one. The universal failure of man has not been to have no God, but to have too many.
