The image of God carried by most people is that He is impersonal, irrelevant, critical, distant and not very interesting. The greatest need they have is to live their lives with an ever-expanding view of Him. Isaiah 40; 2 Corinthians 3,4; John 8; Job 38-40
Living as if God is a real Person, a present Person, a perfect Father, infinitely good and infinitely great is essential for enjoying Him. Psalm 16, 139; Hebrews 10; Luke 15
Tragically, most people’s image of God is shaped more by the limitations of their earthly father and lies of the enemy, than by the truth of God. Genesis 3; John 8; 2 Corinthians 4; Matthew 7
The biggest battles Christians face against the world, the flesh, and the enemy happen during the active hours of our day. Philippians 2; Ephesians 6; 2 Corinthians 10
Taking small steps towards an ever-expanding view of God will lead to an increasing desire and passion to know and follow God. John 8, 14; Romans 12 & many verses on walking with God
The true measure of our spiritual progress is the frequency and depth of our encounters with God that will naturally result in sharing God stories. Psalm 145 and many verses to “tell” of His works
We need to recalibrate the way we encounter God when reading the Bible. When we know what God is truly like, we see the rest of the Bible in a very different light. Matthew 23; John 6,9

“The trajectory of your whole life is determined by one single thing; the image of God that you live your life with. Sadly, most people live with a false view of God; that He is irrelevant, critical, distant and not very interesting. It’s a lie. It is a tragedy to live with a false view of God, it effects everything in your life.” Doug Sherman
