How to know God

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth and you and I.
God created us because He wanted to be in relationship with us.

Yet man, in seeking his own way, has sinned and that sin seperates us from a just and holy God. "For we all have sinned and fall short of God's glorious standard." Romans 3:23 There is no one who is perfect and not violated God's commandments.

No matter how good we are, or how hard we try we can never be "good enough" to get to Heaven. "For the wages of sin is death..."Romans 6:23

"But the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." God is love and sent his Son to die in our place for our sins.

There is only one way to God and that is through believing in Jesus. "I am the way, the truth, and the life and no one can come to the Father except through me." John 14:6

If we accept this payment made on our behalf we can be reconciled to God. "Yet to all that receive Him, He gave the right to become children of God." John 1:12

Salvation that comes from trusting Christ is already within easy reach. In fact, the Scriptures say, 'The message is close at hand it is on your lips and in your heart.' For if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. As the Scriptures tell us, 'Anyone who believes in Him will not be disappointed.'" Romans 10: 7-11

God has made you to be in an ever growing and deepening relationship with Him, one that will last for the rest of your life until one day you are in heaven with Him. Will you accept His invitation?
