We know all these facts as a result of the Holy Scriptures (Bible) that have been preserved all these generations that we might know these things. Therein lies the key, reading the records that have guided and changed the lives of those that seek to know God.
The Bible is the only way we know for sure who God is. If we take another’s word for who God is without reading and understanding for ourselves the truth, we risk a warped view of the glory and majesty of God Himself. You see, when a person makes the decision I talked about in the segment on “How does one acquire spirituality?” there is a second gift given to that individual. It is the Spirit of God often referred to as the Holy Spirit.
The function of the Holy Spirit is to give you discernment and understanding of the knowledge you need to understand the Bible and live a life congruent with a Spiritually Fit person. Notice I didn’t say perfect person since none of us will ever achieve perfection this side of heaven. However, you will achieve a greater degree of peace and satisfaction in life as you reach for a closer relationship with God.
