HOW TO KNOW GOD

Romans 3:23 “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”
Some may think they have lived a good life, but we all have sinned in one way or another.  We were all born with sin and in it’s control. Sin is rebellion to God and separates us from Him. * The Bible tells us that we must admit we are a sinner.

Romans 6:23 “…the wages of sin is death…”
The Lord is holy and therefore He must deal with sin.  The outcome of a sinful life is death. We all face the same fate, a physical death; we all head for it the moment we are born. There is an eternity and because of sin, those who reject Jesus will spend it separated from Him in a place that the Bible calls “The Lake of Fire” (Revelation 20:14-15) tormented forever.  * We must recognize and confess that we deserve this.

Romans 6:23 “…the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Salvation is a free gift from God! You can’t earn this gift, but you can receive it. – * Ask God to forgive you and save you.

Romans 5:8, “…God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us”
Because He loves you He has provided the only way your sins can be forgiven.”  When Jesus died on the cross, He paid sin’s penalty. He paid the price for all sin, and when He took all the sins of the world on Himself on the cross, He bought us out of slavery to sin and death! The only condition is that we believe in Him and what He has done for us, understanding that we are now joined with Him, and that He is our life. He did all this because He loved us and gave Himself for us!  * Give your life to God… what Jesus did on the cross is your only hope to have forgiveness and change, you can’t do it on your own. His love is what saves you — not religion or church membership, His love for you!

Romans 10:13 “…whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.”  * Call out to God in the name of Jesus for Him to save you!

Romans 10:9-10 “…that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.  For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. * God is knocking on the door of your heart, ask Him to come into your heart, confess Him as Lord.

Revelation 3:20 “Behold I stand at the door and knock, if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him…” One way we hear His voice is through the bible, open the door of your heart and invite Him in, He will now fill you with the Holy Spirit.

2 Corinthians 6:2 “For He says: In an acceptable time I have heard you and in the day of salvation I have helped you.  Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.”  You don’t have to do it alone anymore He wants to help you if you’ll just let Him in. Don’t wait until it is too late none of us are guaranteed tomorrow.

John 1:12 “As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name!”  The Lord doesn’t send people to hell, they choose to go there because they refuse to receive Him as Lord. Regardless of what you have done you have not gone beyond the reach of His love and forgiveness.

There is hope. This is your opportunity to make peace with God, right now, where you’re at. You can have assurance of salvation as His word says that He is “….not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance”   2 Peter 3:9.   It’s time for a fresh new start in your life, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain in giving your life to Christ. If you would like to give your life to Christ then please pray the following prayer

Lord Jesus I know that I’m a sinner; it’s against you that I have sinned and I’m truly sorry for my sins. My sins have separated me from You and for that I know I deserve eternity apart from you. Your word says you loved me enough to send Jesus to die on the cross to pay for my sins. I believe as Your word says that He rose from the dead to overcome sin and death. I ask right now for forgiveness and I thank you for Your love. Jesus please come into my heart, take control of my life and be my Lord and Savior. Amen.

Welcome, you are now a child of God.

He says in Hebrews 13:5 “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” What an awesome promise you now have from God.
