Yes, you too can get in touch with God, your creator, and enter into the purpose for which He made you. Take the following steps and you will be able to open the doors of heaven for you. OK. May God help you as you begin your pilgrimage!
First step is to recognize that you have wronged God all these years by ignoring Him. Read Psalm 14:2. “The Lord looks from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there are any that act wisely, that seek after God.” V.3 reads, “They have all gone astray, they are all alike corrupt; there is none that does good, no not one”. The Bible calls it ‘sin’. Ignoring your creator is the greatest sin of your life!
Then realize that you are guilty before God and that you are liable for punishment by being eternally separated from God. Read 2 Thes.1:8,9. “…those who do not know God …shall suffer the punishment of eternal destruction and exclusion from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His might,”. The Bible calls it ‘hell’.
Now Believe that the God of love has sent His Only Son Jesus Christ to save you from your punishment and to make you His child so that you can live with Him eternally. Read Jn. 3:16. “For God so loved that world that He gave us His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” Christ died and rose again for our sins. I Cor. 15:3,4. If you believe this, we call it mental assent to the gospel. So far, so good. But that is not enough. Tragically many have reached this place and have not taken the next crucial step!
If you believe that Christ is God’s provision for your sin, you need to make it your personal possession by calling upon Him to save you. Read Rom.10:13. “Every one who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Read also Jn. 1:12. “But to all who received him (Jesus Christ), who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God;” Jn.1:13 says that such are born of God. This is a decision of your will!
If you are ready for this, kneel down and open your mouth and follow me in the prayer I am going to repeat for you. “Dear God, I realize that I have sinned against you in not seeking after you. I ask you to forgive me now. I believe that Jesus Christ your Only Son died and rose again for my sin. I receive him as my lord and savior. Make me your child through Jesus Christ your Son. Amen.” Get up from your knees.
If you made that prayer from your heart, The Bible says that you are saved from the wrath to come. Read Rom. 10:9. “If you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” The Bible says, “Beloved, we are God’s children now”(I Jn.3:2)!
Would you not like to thank God for making you His child? Do it. Do it now! Live in constant touch with Him. The Bible is your guide for your daily living. Read it regularly. The Holy Spirit will lead you into all truth as you read the Bible regularly. Get into touch with us if you need more help. God Bless You. Cheerio!
(The Spirit of God will whisper in your heart that you are a child of God. Now try and listen very carefully as you might over crowd His voice with your busy life. From now on, tune your heart to listen to the voice of God regularly. Do this quietly especially as you read the Scriptures every day. Just as you cannot starve your physical body, you should not starve your inner man who is just born (Eph.2:1). Feed it regularly with the word of God (I Pet. 2:1,2). As you listen to and obey the voice of God, God will continue to speak to you and God will give you an involvement in His eternal plans.
By the way, don’t forget to tell your buddies about your encounter with God. Bring them also into touch with God. Remember not who believe in God, but only those who call up on Him in sincerity will ever be saved! OK.)
