One of the best ways to know a person is to visit their home. This is because a person’s home is a place where he or she can be expressed. If a home is neat and clean then we know that a neat and clean person lives there. If a home is beautifully decorated then we know that the person who lives there appreciates beauty. The principle is the same with God. To know God we should find out where He lives and what His dwelling place is like.

). Yet the Bible also tells us that we, as human beings, can contact and receive God and become His children (John 1:12
). How can we reconcile this apparent paradox?

It is a fact that human beings have certain needs. We need light and air, water and food, shelter and rest. Many people also sense the need for God, but is this normal? Is it human to need God?
