Who is God really?

I was thinking about how little most people really know God. It seems we can't help but make God in our own image. We see God how we need to see him. We see God how we were taught to see him or how our faith tells us to see him. We see God based on our experiences or how our culture sees God. 

Building an authentic relationship with God takes time. It's almost like a process of filtering each experience, letting it be continually evaluated and examined. We allow the Holy Spirit to keep explaining and teaching us about that experience. We keep filtering out all the incorrect and incomplete ideas of God until we get to something real and authentic. Once we get that tiny nugget of truth, we can place it in the relational framework. The only way to know God is through this authentic experience and knowledge.
