When I heard this it just resonates as truth. It also works in reverse, because when we keep His commandments and love Him, we learn to be more like Him and therefore know Him. (1 John 2:3-6).

NB. The Jeffrey R Holland talk this was taken from was 'The Grandeur of God' from a General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in October 2003. You can read or listen to it it many languages.
Check it out.
