The One Who Reveals

The One Who Makes Sense Of It All

By Dr. David Burrows, January 10, 2021

Romans 1.19-20

God reveals Himself to us. For life to make sense I need to understand the significance of that revelation.

Deep Down, We Know Something

Revelation: I can know something about God because God makes Himself known. I only know what He reveals.

General/Natural Revelation: The general knowledge I have about God is from nature and His image within me.

Special/Specific Revelation: The specific knowledge I have about God is from the Scriptures and, ultimately, Jesus in the Scriptures.

Progressive Revelation: Through Scripture God gradually and increasingly makes Himself known, finally and completely, in Jesus.

**We Know Something About God** 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. A Holy God is a revealing God. We can know something about Him, ultimately in Jesus.

We Know Enough

Revelation means that a Holy God communicates to us.

Revelation means that God is interested and involved in our life.

Revelation means that you have someone, Jesus, and some place, the Bible, to go to in order to make sense of it all.

God reveals Himself to us in such a way that life makes sense in Him.
