When we know the true nature of God, we have a correct perspective of His Word. We must be careful, however, not to mistake a shallow, intellectual knowledge of God for a real relationship with Him. A Christian’s focus should not be on practicing the right principles or mechanics, but on getting to know the Father through His Son, Jesus. Our relationship should not be based on what we can get from God, but on how much He loves us; everything we need in life will spring from a deep, intimate bond with Him. There is nothing wrong with Christian principles, as long as we focus on Christ and a relationship with Him, first and foremost. Focusing on Jesus transforms us by changing our belief of who we are in Him, and convinces us we are children of God. When we know not just who we are but whose we are, we can rest in this loving relationship with our heavenly Father.
