But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. Malachi 4:2

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ . . . Galatians 6:14
For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 1 Corinthians 2:2

Study Jesus!

D. A. Carson writes:
Do you want to know what God looks like? Look at Jesus. "No one has ever seen God," and God in all of His transcendent splendor we still cannot see until the last day. But the Word became flesh; God became a human being with the name of Jesus; and we can see Him.

That is why Jesus later says to one of His own disciples, "Don’t you know Me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father" (John 14:9).

Do you want to know what the character of God is like? Study Jesus.

Do you want to know what the holiness of God is like? Study Jesus.

Do you want to know what the wrath of God is like? Study Jesus.

Do you want to know what the forgiveness of God is like? Study Jesus.

Do you want to know what the glory of God is like? Study Jesus all the way to that wretched cross. Study Jesus.
