Knowing God

Knowing God is not some mystical and incommunicable thing. We know him through his acts and his word, by which he informs us of his acts and interprets them to us. God's communication of himself through the presence of his Spirit does not happen apart from his communication about himself through his word. Furthermore, we would not know of the presence of his Spirit if it did not please him to tell us about it.

-- Graeme Goldsworthy, Preaching the Whole Bible as Christian Scripture, p.36
