How to Know God

God's Plan for You

God loves you and has provided a way for you to have abundant and eternal life through His Son Jesus Christ.

The Bible says: 

  • "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life."  John 3:16  
  • "I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly."  John 10:10

Your Dilemma

God created us with a free will and we have chosen to go our own way and disobey God. As a result, we are separated from God.

The Bible says: 

  • "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23
  • "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 6:23

Your Attempt to Reach God

It is impossible for man to bridge the gap between himself and God. 

The Bible says: 

  • "There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death." Proverbs 14:12
  • "But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden his face from you so that he does not hear." Isaiah 59:2 

Your Bridge to God

God gave his Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross. He paid the penalty for your sin, providing a way to bridge the gap between you and God. Three days after His death Jesus Christ rose from the dead, and lives today in heaven. 

The Bible says:

  • "For there is one God, and  one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus."  1 Timothy 2:5
  • "For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that he might bring us to God."  1 Peter 3:18
  • Jesus said "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me."  John 14:6
  • "But God demonstrates his love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."  Romans 5:8 

Your Response

Through simple faith in the Lord Jesus one can know their sins forgiven. In Act 16:31 the question was asked "What must I do to be saved?" The response given was "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved". You  must trust Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour and receive Him in repentance and by faith.

The Bible says:

  • "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God."  John 1:12
  • "He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him."  John 3:36
  • "That if you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."  Romans 10:9
  • "Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved."  Romans 10:13
