“Christianity is a revealed religion.”
– Fr. Desmond Gooneskera

My pastor brought out an important fact – faith in Christ is more successful when it is caught than when it is just taught!

Begin noticing variations of the word, “reveal” throughout the Bible. It’s not just for newbies! God is only known through revelation, and always through Christ.

Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith … mention … you in my prayers; That … God … give unto you … revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know …” – Ephesians 1:15-18

“[A]s many as received [Jesus], to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born … of God. And the Word was made flesh …” – John 1:12-14

“God has a face and it looks like your face and my face. If people want to know what he looks like they will be looking at you and me … People are looking at you and me to see if the word of God has any flesh on it.”
