The secret things of God are so, not for the sake of confidentilality, but for the sake of our seeking. One can only truly identify with the truths of God by knowing his character. This is obtained through actively engaging with his word by asking, seeking, and knocking as in Matthew 7: 7-9. Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and the door shall be opened to you: For every one that asketh, receiveth; and he that seeketh, findeth; and to him that knocketh, the door shall be opened (CWSB). By this, we become inheritors of the secret things. No longer scholars, but sons fully able to walk in the knowledge we have gained of God; we become like him.
