“No one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him” ([tippy title=”Matthew 11:27″ class=”” showheader=”true” href=”” width=”450″ height=”100″]27 All things have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows the Sonexcept the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.[/tippy]).

Man-made gods generally require that their devotees offer sacrifices to them. If the worshippers want a good harvest or a good journey, etc. they must offer their god some food or other tribute.

Jesus came to show us what the true and only God is like ([tippy title=”John 14:7-9″ class=”” showheader=”true” href=”” width=”450″ height=”200″]If you had known me, you would have known my Father also.[a] From now on you do know him and have seen him.”

Philip said to him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.” Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?[/tippy]). He was able to do this because he himself is God ([tippy title=”John 1:1-3″ class=”” showheader=”true” href=”” width=”450″ height=”100″]In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.[/tippy]).

Our God is not a god who requires us to offer sacrifices to him; he is God who sacrificed himself for us. That is the kind of God he is, and the sacrifice he made for you is the measure of his love.
