About knowing yourself…
John 8:32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. (NIV)
To know yourself, know your true thoughts and emotions about God as love. Too often we can think of God in ways in which we leave out the substance of God, and the substance of God is love. We can think of God as a punisher. We can think of God as a controller. We can think of God as destiny maker. We think of God in many ways, and sometimes we would be correct in how we think. However, the being who created us is love. Love made us. Love made the universe. Love lives inside of us. We can know this love that is God if we would just seek, ask, and knock. Our mind cannot easily see or conceive of God because God is love. Love lives in our heart. When we want to know more about ourselves, when we want to know more about our life and God's place in our life, we must think upon God as love. The more we come to know about God, the more we come to know about ourselves.
