1. How to Know God Personally

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...

2. Jesus is The Barrier Breaker!

God loves you so much. Right where you are, just as you are, he loves you! He has a wonderful purpose for your life and an exciting destiny for you. But we were all separated from God, not able to truly know him and enjoy his purpose for our lives. So reaching out in love, God sent us his son Jesus.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.’ John 3:16

3. Jesus is the Life Giver

When Jesus rose from the dead, he broke the power of sin and death. He destroyed the barrier between us and God, so that we can know him and receive a completely new life with him.

That’s why Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life.”

He is the life giver! He gives us [NeaZoi] a NewLife, real life, eternal life.

Jesus said, ‘ “I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.” John 10:10

4. You can receive Jesus

To receive Christ is to accept him as your Lord, to follow him, to live for him and to enjoy a new life with him. The bible word ‘believe’ also means to ‘trust in’ and to ‘rely on’. So to believe in Jesus, is to trust and to rely on him, on what he said, and what he has done for you!

Jesus is saying ... “Look, here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in, and will eat with him, and he with me.” Revelation 3:20 [paraphrased]

The following explains how you can receive Christ:

You can receive Christ right now by faith through prayer

Prayer is talking to God. God knows your heart and is not so concerned with your words as He is with the attitude of your heart.
So lets pray together:

Jesus, I really need you in my life. I am so sorry for my sins, I turn away from everything that is wrong, and I ask you to forgive me right now. Thank you Jesus that you died for me, and that you rose again, to set me completely free. I give myself totally to you right now and receive you as Lord of my life. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for forgiving me. Thank you for coming into my life!
In Jesus’ name, Amen.

If this prayer expresses the desire of your heart, then you can pray this prayer right now and Christ will come into your life, as He promised.
