John 14:9 New International Version (NIV)

Jesus answered: “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. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?

We meet God personally through Jesus. God wants us to build a relationship with him. He longs for us to have a long time relationship with him and to build it with him. A relationship with Jesus, grows our knowing of God.
