How to know God

                                                        
Many people around the world from different nations and language are asking this question. Does God really exist? Is there proof of God's existence? The following offers real evidence and proof to believe in the existence of God.
                            

From what we experience in our everyday life, everything seems to have a beginning and an end. Nothing last forever except the eternal God who is the creator of all things. Lets start with a building for example, now picture yourself standing in front of a beautiful building looking at it just for the beauty. How would you know that there is a building standing there? Because you're looking at it, the building does not just come to existence by chance, someone must of build it there. Since you're looking at a standing building you have a clear evidence to believe that there must be a builder, because it's the only thing that make sense. "For every house is built by someone, but He who built all things is God. {Hebrews 3:4 NKJV} "When you look at the world around us seeing all the beautiful things that are in the world, the beautiful trees, waterfalls, sunset, moonlight, stars in the sky, and so on, that gives us a reason to believe that there is a creator. The same example goes also with every material things that we use in our everyday lives. "From the time the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky and all that God made. They can clearly see his invisible qualities-his eternal power and divine nature So they have no excuse whatsoever for not knowing God. {Romans 1:20 NLT} The bible clearly states that all things where made by God and for God, and that include everything that ever existed. "In the beginning was the Word, {Jesus} and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. {John 1:1-5 NKJV}

Most people, at some time in their lives, wonder about the existence of God. Many refuse to believe in the existence of God, because they do not want to obey Him. Some have doubts because the Bible says they cannot see God. Still others claim to believe in God, but they live as though He does not exist. How can you be sure whether or not there is a God? Another not to believe in something you have to first give it a try to see whether or not you can trust or like it. You cannot hate something until you first try it. Lets say you go eat in a restaurant, now you may not like everything they serve in the restaurant, and some restaurant will let you try a sample taste of their food before you buy it. You cannot just hate it until you first try it.

Worthy are You, our Lord and God, to receive the glory and the honor and dominion, for You created all things; by Your will they were [brought into being] and were created. {Revelation 4:11 AMP}

God created you. And not only that, He loves you so dearly that he wants you to know him now and spend eternity with him in heaven. [Jesus speaking,
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. {John 3:16-17 NKJV}

Jesus came into the world so that each of us can understand and know God in a personal new way. Jesus did not come into the world to condemn everyone living in the world but to save everyone by giving up his own life as a ransom sacrifice for many. [Jesus speaking, "God did not send his son into the world to condemn it, but to save it through him (Jesus). John 3:17

What does it take to begin a personal relationship with God? There are four important steps to take to begin a personal relationship with God.

Step 1:
You must realize that you are a sinner.No matter how good we try to live life, we still fall miserably short of being a good person. Because God is love and cannot deny his nature, He has provided a way for us to be rescued from our sin problem by sending his only son into the world in the likeness of a man. Because Christ was the only one qualify and anointed to take away the sins of the whole world.

God's Love
"For God so loved the world that he gave his only son, (Jesus) so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life" {John 3:16 NLT}

The bible tells us that God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners" {Romans 5:8 NLT} This is the good news, that God love us so much that he send his one and only son to die in our place when we least deserved it.

God's plan
[Jesus speaking, "I came that they might have life, and might have it more abundantly" [that it might be full and meaningful] John 10:10

One of the main question that most people are asking is, why is that most people are not experiencing the abundant life? You will find the answer to that question as you read on.

Step 2: Man is sinful and separated from God. Therefore he cannot know and experience God's love and plan for his life.

All have sinned
The bible clearly states that all have sinned. That includes you, along with every man, woman and children who has ever lived. "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. {Romans 3:23} Man was created to have fellowship with God; but because of self-will stubborn, he chose to go his own way, and has broken the fellowship with God.

Man is separated from God
It is a spiritual separation. The bible says, "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. {Romans 6:23 NLT} Man tries every good deeds that they know to try to reach "Holy God" We cannot reach God by being good, if that was the case, Christ wouldn't give up his life as a sacrifice for sin, because his life was too precious to be given up in vain. "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. {Ephesians 2:8-9 NKJV}

Step 3:
Jesus Christ is the only provision that God provided for the sins of all men. Through him (Jesus) you can experience God's love and plan for your life. Our sins has a high price tag on it that we couldn't afford to pay. We deserve to pay for our sins, but the problem is that the payment is death. "For the wages of sin is death. {Romans 6:23}

So that we would not have to die separated from God, out of his love for us, He sent Jesus Christ to die in our place to provide a way for us to be reconcile with Him. When Jesus died on the cross, He took upon himself all of our sins and bore the punishment that we deserve. We broke the law and Jesus paid our fine.

The bible tells us to, "repent and be converted {Acts 3:19 NKJV} The word repent simply means to change our way of life.

Step 4:
After knowing that we have fallen apart from the glory of God, and he himself has provided a way for us to be reconcile to him through the sacrifice of his son.

The bible says, "But to all who believed him and accepted him, He gave the right to become children of God. {John 1:12 NLT}

We accept Jesus Christ by faith through the grace of God. The bible says, "God saved us by his special favor when we believed. It is not earn by doing good deeds; we cannot take credit for it because none of us deserve it.

To receive Jesus Christ as Lord and savior involves tuning to God from self repentance and trusting Christ to come into our lives to forgive our sins and to make us become the right kind of person that he wants us to be.

You can start a personal relationship with Jesus Christ right now by faith through prayer

Jesus said, "Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice and open the door, I will come into him, and will sup with him [eat or celebrate with him], and he with me.
