I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. – Ephesians 1:17 (NIV)

Notice that knowing God is linked to the Spirit of wisdom and revelation. No matter how much we try to figure out God, the knowledge of God is not up to us – it has to be revealed. The apostle Paul was praying for a people who were basing their knowledge of God more upon His revelation and not their own. This is not a God formed in our image – we are formed in His image. When we see God as our glorious Father, we’ll move from information about God to worship, and in doing so, we will know Him better.
