In his book The Knowledge of the Holy, A.W. Tozer writes, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us. The history of mankind will probably show that no people has ever risen above its religion, and man’s spiritual history will positively demonstrate that no religion has ever been greater than its idea of God. Worship is pure or base as the worshiper entertains high or low thoughts of God. For this reason the gravest question before the Church is always God Himself, and the most [significant] fact about any man is not what he—at a given time—may say or do, but what he—in his deep heart—conceives God to be like. We tend by a secret law of the soul to move toward our mental image of God.”

I think Tozer is right. Our conception of God shapes who we are. But how do we even know what God is like? We know what God is like because He has revealed Himself to us in His Word—the Scriptures.
