“It is one thing to hear about a distant king. It is something very different when the King actually comes to your door.”
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 (Hebrews 1:1-2).
“God has determined not to just tell you about himself. He has also entered into human history so he could be “that which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hand have touched – this we proclaim concerning the Word of life” (1 John 1:1). God definitely wants you to know him.” Ed Welch, What Do You Think of Me? p. 78
