What does it take to begin a relationship with God? Devote yourself to unselfish religious deeds? Become a better person so that God will accept you?
You may be surprised that none of those things will work. But God has made it very clear in the Bible how we can know him.
The following principles will explain how you can personally begin a relationship with God right now through Jesus Christ.
1. God loves you and offers a wonderful plan for your life
God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
God's plan. "I came that they might have life, and might have it in abundantly".
2. All of us sin and our sin has separated us from God.
All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. We were created to have fellowship with God but because of our stubborn self will, we chose to go our own way independent way and fellowship with God was broken.
This self will, characterized by an attitude of active rebellion or passive indifference, is evidence of what the Bible calls sin.
He died and rose from the dead
Christ died and was buried, and was raised on the third day according to the Bible. He is the only way to God. "Jesus said I'm the way, and the truth, and the life, no one comes to the father but through me.
4. We must individually receive Jesus Christ as lord and savior, then we can know and experience God's love and plan for our lives.
