-How Can I Know God?

   We all share a common destiny and a common dilema!

We were created, and born into this world to KNOW God, and to bring Him pleasure by living out our lives His way!  But the dilema according to Romans 3: 23..."For all (that's us) have sinned (that's our natural tendency to do things "my" way and not God's way), and come short (that's missing the target that brings God pleasure) of the Glory of God." (that's our purpose for living, to Bring Glory to God!)  SO WITH SUCH A HUGE OBSTACLE (MY FAILURES) IN THE WAY...HOW CAN I KNOW GOD?  The Bible says in 1John 5: 13, "These things are written so that you can believe on the name of the Son of God, Jesus Christ, and that YOU MAY KNOW that you have eternal life."  Eternal life is God's Destiny for your life....and according to the Word of God, "Eternal life is to know God NOW and FOREVER!"  The Bible also says in Romans 6:23, "The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."  John 3: 16 says it this way, "For God so loved the world that He gave His One and Only Son (He died on a Cross)and that whosoever believes on Him shall not perish but have everlasting life!"  SO what if I chose not to open up this free gift from God?  The Bible says that many will chose not to follow Him.  It also says in Romans 6:23, "That the wages of sin is death."  The destiny of most will be a life separated from the love and blessing of God...both here and now, and throughout eternity in a place called "hell."  THEN HOW DO I UNWRAP THE GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE THAT GOD OFFERS TO ME?  Romans 10: 9-10 says, "If you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you WILL BE SAVED. For with the heart a man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation."
