The Hiddenness of God
As followers of Jesus and those committed to the way and things of God, we should be aware that God is both revealed and hidden. God revealed himself in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments and ultimately in and through the person of Jesus Christ. Nevertheless, our understanding and knowledge of God is always partial and limited this side of Christ’s return. The reality is that the more we understand and the deeper our relationship with God becomes, the more we are aware that our knowledge of God barely touches the tip of the iceberg of the mystery that is God. Thus, we recognise our smallness and God’s greatness, and in doing so, we wonder at his graciousness in revealing himself to us in the first place.
