Sometimes when I am sharing about God's love and forgiveness with an individual, he will have a questioning look on his face and ask, "But is God real?"
I kindly reply, "Oh, definitely. God is real - very real - and He has made it possible for us to know Him. But this special relationship with God requires a response from us." I often share what Jesus says in John 3:16: "God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life." The only way we can have a relationship with our great Creator is through His Son, Jesus Christ. Knowing Jesus is the first step to knowing God.
Have you made a decision to turn to God by trusting Jesus as your Savior and Lord? If not, I urge you to do so today.
Another essential step to growing in our relationship with God is listening to His Spirit. Jesus promises, "When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth." (John 16:13) God has given us the Holy Spirit to help us in our relationship with Him. A third response we make as we begin to know and appreciate our marvelous God is to seek Him wholeheartedly. Because of David's desire to seek God wholeheartedly, God called him "a man after My own heart."
I urge you to consider what might be keeping you from hungering after God. Ask God to help you resolve any issues and turn away from anything that would prevent you from having an intimate relationship with Him.
Embark on an adventure to intimacy with God by looking at God's attributes.
Your View of God Really Matters ...
Take a pen and piece of paper. List anything in your life that might prevent you from hungering after God with all your heart. Then confess it to the Lord according to 1 John 1:9. Receive your forgiveness and begin an exciting new quest!
