How To Know God

Get To Know God Personally!                                                                                           
 

FIRST, realize that you are a sinner

No matter how good a life we try to live, we still will fall miserably short of God's standards.
 
The Bible says, "No one is good - not even one" (Romans 3:10).  Another word for good is righteous.  The word righteous means "one who is as he or she ought to be."  Apart from Jesus Christ, we cannot become the people we "ought to be."
 
 
SECOND, recognize that Jesus Christ Died on the cross for you
 
Scripture says, "But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners" (Romans 5:8).  God gave his very Son to die in our place when we least deserved it.  As the Apostle Paul said. "[Christ] loved me and gave himself for me" (Galatians 2:20).
 
 
THIRD, repent of your sin
 
The Bible tells us to "repent...and be converted" (Acts 3:19).  The word repent means to change our direction in life.  Instead of running from God, we can run toward Him.
 
 
FOURTH, receive Jesus Christ into your life
 
Becoming a Christian is not merely believing some creed or going to church on Sunday.  It is having Christ Himself take residence in your life and heart.  Jesus said, "Behold, I stand at the door [of your life] and knock.  If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in..." (Revelation 3:20).
 
Jesus stands at the door of your life right now and is knocking.  He says that if you will hear His voice and open the door, He will come in.  If you would like to know that when you die you will go to heaven, and if you want to have a life that is full of purpose and meaning, then pray this suggested prayer and mean it with your heart:


Dear Lord Jesus, I am a sinner, I believe You died for my sins and rose again from the dead.  Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life.  I confess You as my personal Lord and Savior.  Thank you for saving me.  Amen.
