How can a person know God? More than know about God, how can they actually come to know God personally? To answer that question, a person must learn that the Bible has some bad news and some good news. Once you believe that, you are ready for the best news of all.
BAD NEWS – Jesus had to come to earth because we all have a huge problem. Our sin (disobeying God’s laws) separates us from God and His love.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”.
“For Christ also suffered for sins…in order that He might bring us to God”.
I Peter 3:18
BEST NEWS – Our heavenly father gives the greatest gift of all. God gives new life (eternal life with God) as a gift to those who trust in Jesus!!
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord”.
For further study, consider: Isaiah 59:1-2,
Romans 3:10-12, John 3:16, Ephesians 2:1-10
