How to Know God

  1. Realize that you, like all people, are a sinner. You have been a sinner from the time you were born because of man's first rebellion to and disobedience of God. This sin has separated you from the one holy, just God of the Bible. Good works, religion, philosophy, self-reformation and morality will not bridge that gap. "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)



  2. Recognize that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you. Even though we fall short of what God wants for us, in His love and grace (unmerited favor), He made a way for us to come to Him. "God commends [demonstrates] His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8) This is the Good News, that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die in our place when we least deserved it. Christ's death was the payment for our sins.



  3. Repent of your sin. The word "repent" means to change our direction in life. You repent when you no longer want to live a life with your back turned to God.



  4. Receive Christ as your Savior. Jesus said, I am the way, the truth and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by Me. (John 14:6) You don't become a Christian by believing some creed or going to church every Sunday. It is having Christ himself take residence in your life and heart.
