Five Foundational Principles for Knowing God
By J.I. Packer
1. God has spoken to man, and the Bible is His Word, given to us to make us wise unto salvation.
2. God is Lord and King over His world; He rules all things for His own glory, displaying His perfections in all that He does, in order that men and angels may worship and adore Him.
3. God is Savior, active in sovereign love through the Lord Jesus Christ to rescue believers from the guilt and power of sin, to adopt them as His sons, and to bless them accordingly.
Knowing God JI Packer Book Cover New4. God is Triune; there are within the Godhead three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost; and the work of salvation is one in which all three act together, the Father purposing redemption, the Son securing it, and the Spirit applying it.
5. Godliness means responding to God’s revelation in trust and obedience, faith and worship, prayer and praise, submission and service. Life must be seen and lived in the light of God’s Word. This and nothing else is true religion.

WEEKLY LEADER GUIDE
- Can you tell us one way you saw God work in your life this week?
1. Read Psalm 50:7-12. How do we see God’s self-sufficiency in this verse?
2. Why is it important for us to recognize that only God is self-sufficient?
3. What have you been tempted to believe that God needs from you?
4.Draw on a time you can remember when you fell into self-reliance. What did it feel like? Are there specific "red flags" you can recall as a warning to your self or others?
5. In what areas are you most prone to believe that you do not need God?
6. What human need do you resent the most? How is that boundary for your good? For God’s glory?
7. Does the command to abide in Christ that is given to us in John 15 seem difficult? Why?
