Known by God

It is a statement within a larger sentence that Paul writes to followers of Jesus in Galatia. These recent believers had been convinced by others that to be "Christian" they had to practice the tenants of Judaism. Thus, these followers of Jesus began to fervently uphold all of the traditions of Jewish faith. And Paul wants to know why they would do such a thing. He says:
But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire again to be in bondage? (Galatians 4:9).

Did you see it? A phrase that makes an eternal difference, "Known by God."

While God is our creator, you must choose to obey Him and get close to Him, that's how you are known by God.

I know a lot of people; I converse with acquaintances, I eat and share ideas with my friends, but only my family knows most of the details of my life. Only my wife knows everything about me, the good, the bad, and the ugly. I am known by my Patty.

We want to be known by God so that we can be included in His family and live in heaven with Him.
