How to Have a Relationship with God!
Have you ever asked, “Why Am I Alive? What is MY Purpose?”
God tells us in the Bible, we are created for HIS pleasure! (Revelation 4:11)
If we go back to the beginning of human history, we find that God would walk and talk with Adam (the first man) and Eve (the first woman). God would fellowship with man until he willfully disobeyed God’s word. (Genesis 3)
Because of this disobedience (sin), fellowship was broken, until a sacrifice was made.
Why is this important? God created you for His pleasure! He wants to have a relationship with you, but because of your sin, it is not possible. God cannot look on sin.
(Habakkuk 1:13 Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity…)
How can you and I have a relationship with God, if God cannot look at our sin.
Realize WE ALL ARE SINNERS.
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Sin is anything I think, do, or say that breaks God’s law.
It only takes one sin to be a sinner!
Realize WE CANNOT DO ENOUGH GOOD TO GET TO GOD.
Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done…
Ephesians 2:8,9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
