Getting To Know God
Do you want to know God better? Do you want to know for sure that you have life after death in heaven? Do you want God’s peace, protection, and provision in your life? You can have all of this—by following these steps:
1. Recognize and admit that you NEED GOD’S HELP
You may be at the point where you realize that some things can’t be changed through self-effort or hard work. Sometimes, you just need God to make things better. Whether you need physical or emotional healing, finances, friends, or peace of mind, God has it all. Are you ready to ask Him to make a difference in your life?
2. Believe in JESUS
Have you heard the “good news”? The “good news” is this: “For there [is only] one God, and [only] one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, Who gave Himself as a ransom for all…” (1 Timothy 2:5 AMP).
God sent Jesus Christ to be the Savior of the world. Romans 10: 9-10 says, “For if you tell others with your own mouth that Jesus Christ is your Lord and believe in your own heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in his heart that a man becomes right with God; and with his mouth he tells others of his faith, confirming his salvation” (TLB).
3. Say this PRAYER OUT LOUD
This simple prayer—when prayed in sincerity—will bring you into personal relationship with God.
Heavenly Father, I acknowledge that I need Your help. Dear Jesus, I believe that You died for me and rose again. I confess that I am a sinner and need Your love and forgiveness. Come into my life, forgive my sins, and give me eternal life. I believe You have provided a way for me to receive Your blessings and help in my life, I believe and confess Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I thank You for saving me and I ask for Your grace and mercy in my life. I pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen
