How to know God
Did you ever wonder if there is a God? And if there is, how you might come to know Him? You are not the only one who has questions about God. Almost everyone does. That is why the Bible has answers.
God wants to have a personal relationship with you starting today. Don’t wait until it’s too late! There are only a few simple steps to take. It is not a formula or a ritual but simply a matter of what is truly in your heart.
You Can Know God Personally!
However, we do not enjoyGod’s love and His plan for our lives because we have chosen to disobey Him and go our own willful way. The result is that we are separated from God. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)
Salvation is a free gift offered by Jesus Christ, not a result of your own efforts. God sent His Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for our sins. “The Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.” (1 John 4:14) Because Jesus never sinned, He is the only one who could take the punishment for our sins. The Bible says ” But God demonstrates His own love for us in this; While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
Receiving God’s Free Gift
Jesus says, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him” (Revelation 3:20). God’s free gift of eternal life is available to everyone who asks by a simple prayer of faith. The Bible says, “By grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast” (Ephesians 2:8,9).
Receiving Christ is a matter of changing your mind. Instead of trusting yourself, you are now ready to trust Jesus Christ to come into your life, forgive your sins and become your Lord and Savior. Just to agree intellectually that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He died on the cross for our sins is not enough. Nor is it enough to have an emotional experience. You must receive Jesus Christ by faith, as an act of the will.
Jesus will save you, but you must come to Him on His terms:
Accept Him by calling upon His Name. The Bible says, “Whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Romans 10:13)
If you want to receive Jesus now, just tell Him in a sincere prayer that by faith you need and accept His free gift of salvation.
Call on the Name of the Lord by praying a simple prayer such as this:
If you sincerely prayed that prayer, the Bible says that you are now a Child of God! “That as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become Children of God, even to those who believe in His name.” (John 1:13) You can rest assured that you are going to Heaven when you die and you now have the power to overcome the sin in your life.
