One of the best sites I’ve ever seen for explaining how to know God personally is at Campus Crusade for Christ.
They base their guide on the following principles:
1. God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life.
2. All of us sin, and our sin has us separated from God.
3. Jesus Christ is God’s only provision for our sin. Through Him we can know and experience God’s love and plan for our life.
4. We must individually receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord; then we can know and experience God’s love and plan for our life.
It’s important to me to let you know that not only does God love you, you don’t have to “get right with God” before He will accept you. That’s the whole reason Jesus died on the cross, because no one can “get right” in their own power. Your failure is why He came, and He came so that we can be reconciled to God, to walk right into the throne room of heaven and talk to him as friend, as perfect and loving Father, as Master and Lord, as Counselor, and so much more. He wants that personal relationship with you. He wants to be near you. But He’s not going to force you. He’s waiting on you to let Him in, to let Him do the work in your heart and mind, let Him do the cleanup. He loves you; He just wants you to trust Him. He’s the only trustworthy one out there.
If you have any questions, I would be more than happy to discuss with you how to come to the Lord. Just use the contact button to email me. I’m a teacher by nature, and want to help – through love, not through condemnation. If you have honest questions, I have honest answers.
If you’ve accepted the Lord through this page or something I’ve posted, or if the Lord has brought something to your attention that has changed your heart and mind because of something you’ve seen on this website, I invite you to share that with me as well.
Thank you all and God bless!
