Relationship With God
Are you having questions about how to know God personally and how to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ? Maybe you are having concerns about your relationship with Christ. As you read the following material, ask God to reveal Himself to you.
Realize God loves you and seeks to have a personal relationship with you. I John 4:10 states "Real love isn’t our love for God, but his love for us. God sent his Son to be the sacrifice by which our sins are forgiven." Understand that a personal relationship through Christ is more than attending a church, being baptized, making a commitment to do better, or memorizing a set of religious material. Having a personal relationship with God is even more than being religious. The word of God says in James 2:19 "You surely believe there is only one God. That’s fine. Even demons believe this, and it makes them shake with fear."
So how does one go about having a personal relationship with God?
Dear Jesus, I realize I have broken not only your laws but also your heart by my sins. My sins have separated me from you. Today I want to turn from my sinful, selfish life toward you. I ask you to forgive me for my sins. I invite Jesus, who died for my sins, was raised from the dead, and is alive now, to become the Savior and Lord of my life. Thank you Jesus for saving me. Amen.
"For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (Romans 10:9-10)
"For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Romans 10:13) Did you just call upon the Lord to save you? Did you mean it with all of your heart? If so, then take time to thank God for saving you.
