To know God is to despise oneself

by Rev. Sunday Bwanhot I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand on the earth. Job 19:25 Job had an intimate relationship with God and addressed God personally as His redeemer. His knowledge of God was not merely intellectual or emotional but experiential, and […]
