How Can I Find God?

On one hand, finding and knowing God is so simple that many people cannot comprehend it. Jesus says that we have to have childlike faith. On the other hand, becoming a Christian can seem impossible because we have to set aside self [pride] and commit ourselves to be totally dependent on someone else; someone we cannot see. Thankfully, God understands these things and also knows your heart. When we truly desire to have a relationship with God, He gives us the faith we need to believe.

Here are the three steps to entering into a personal relationship with God:

Step One: Understand our need to be made right in God's sight 

God is completely holy and completely righteous and because of this no sin can come into his presence. Practically speaking this would mean that no one can be made right with God. While most people are "good people" no one is perfectly good and has never sinned. This is why he, God who is perfect and without sin, came to earth in the person of Jesus Christ to become a perfect and acceptable sacrifice for our sin. When we accept Jesus as savior God no longer "sees" our sin, He sees us through the righteousness of Jesus, who is perfect and without sin.

Step Two: Take a step of faith

Start talking to God. Please be assured He will hear you! Remember God is going to give you the faith you need to believe. He loves you - no matter what your background! Tell God you want to know him that you are sorry for all the wrong you have done in your life and you now receive his gift of forgiveness and accept Jesus as Lord and Savior.

Step Three: Tell someone (call us if you wish)

The Bible says, "If you confess with your mouth (tell someone) that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."

Jesus said, “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it."  Matthew 12:45.  Are you prepared to exchange your present life for something far more valuable and with eternal consequences?
