The most astounding news we can ever hear is that God, the almighty Creator of heaven and earth, invites us to have an intimate relationship with Him. He makes it simple for us to do so. Knowing God intimately can transform your life into one of passion, joy, adventure, and peace. With a clearer understanding of the greatness of our God we will be able to understand the depths of His love.
Someone asked Buddha, the founder of Buddhism, if God existed. He replied, "The question is not relevant. If there were a God, man could not comprehend him anyway. So what good would it be to have such a God?"
Some "religious" people consider God a force, an evil spirit, or something encased in wood or stone. As a result, their concept of God is hazy or impersonal.
If God were merely an energy force or a composite of the universe as New Age philosophies teach, knowing Him personally would be impossible. And if God were merely an idol, made by man's hand from wood or some precious metal, our efforts to know Him would be futile. How could a human have a relationship with an energy force or inanimate object?
But God's Word reveals God as a personal Spirit; therefore, we can know Him personally. This may seem like such a simple concept, but it is the underlying truth on which we base our understanding of God.

Look at the beauty and intricacies in your corner of the Earth; marvel at the genius of the design. How comforting it is to know that the God of creation is concerned with my well-being.
Some might give their lives for good people, but God sent His Son to die for sinners, including the ones who put that Son on the cross. No higher demonstration of love is possible.
