How Can I Know Christ Personally?

God's Love
John 3:16     For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

God's Plan
John 17:3     Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.


What prevents us from knowing God personally? Sin separates us from God.
Romans 3:23     for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
Romans 6:23     The wages of sin is death (spiritual separation from God)


Jesus is the only way to God
John 14:6     I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father but thru me.


You can receive Christ right now by faith thru prayer (Prayer is talking with God) Pray something like:

Lord Jesus, I want to know You personally. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving me of my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of the throne of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be.

Now try to listen & obey. Try to start praying & reading God's word. The Gospel of John is good to start. Tell a christian friend you've accepted Christ!
