Now, for Jesus to make God known means that Jesus knew God. Well besides being God, Jesus in His humanity came from God, because "the Word (Logos) became flesh and dwelt among us". Jesus could therefore express the mind of God, the thoughts of God the plans of God. He was literally God’s utterance on earth unveiling that secret and hidden wisdom of God. What God thinks and speaks comes into being and in Christ we know what God thinks about holiness that is why Jesus revealed holy living, we know what God thinks about sin, that is why Jesus died for sin, because all is an expression of the mind of God. Listen to Hebrews 1:1-2 (NIV)  where this is explained beautifully: " In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe."

So Jesus is the ‘Logos’, or the “Word’, He is the language of God, He is the visible expression of God, He is the one who exegetes or explains God for us.

When Jesus was on earth He reminded His disciples that as the Father had sent Him, He was now sending them. Now we know that His purpose for coming to this earth was to seek and to save the lost. Therefore we, who now through our Lord Jesus Christ know God, have a responsibility to make Him known. Therefore our purpose is: “to know God and to make Him known.” That is why Paul can say: “For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ." (2 Corinthians 4:5-6, NIV)

 

So, if you know Him, why not join us in making Him known?
