How can a person know God?
#1 That God is awesome. “Great is the glory of the LORD” (Ps. 138:5)
#2 God deserves your full devotion. “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” (Matt. 22:37) “do all for the glory of God” (1 Cor.10:31)
#1 You have failed to love & obey God. “For I know that nothing good dwells in me…” (Rom. 7:18) “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Rom. 3:23)
#2 You cannot save yourself. “He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy” (Titus 3:5)
That Jesus paid the price for all of your sin. “Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures” (1 Cor. 15:3)
Turn to Christ:
“… unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.” (Lk. 13:3) “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Rom. 10:13)
