How can I know Jesus?

This question needs to be answered in your life if you don’t know Him as your Savior. Why? Because, if you don’t know Him as your Savior, then one day you will meet Him as your judge and that will not be an enjoyable meeting. Just as criminals today don’t like to go before a judge, we who are sinners don’t want to stand before the Judge of All. We know what we have done in our lives and we know what we are doing today and we don’t want to be held responsible for those sins. Because they will separate us from God forever!

The Bible says that “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God“; there are no saints in the world today only sinners saved by the grace of God through Jesus the Christ! Your life and mine are no different regarding sin because you are either forgiven through belief in Jesus as your Lord and Savior or guilty of even the smallest of sins, like stealing a paper clip. While it is true that stealing a paper clip from the office won’t likely get you fired or in jail, it is still theft in God’s sight. I know it doesn’t sound like much but even the slightest sin is still a sin.

God knows your heart whether you’ve ever given Him a second thought or not. He knows where you were last Friday night and who you were with. He knows exactly what you were thinking and what you said. God knows every person on the planet in this way, there is no place that you can hide from Him. But people try to do it anyway. Like it or not, God knows about every word and thought that you have ever had and every one of them will be used as evidence against you unless you ask Jesus to come into your life and your heart and change you from the inside out.

Once that happens, all of those words and thoughts and everything else are covered by His blood and blotted out. That doesn’t mean that once you have a clean slate you can start over. It means that you should tell others about your Savior and tell them about His provision of forgiveness that is extended to them as well if they will believe in Him too.

God does not want anyone to go to hell but by rejecting the offer of grace through faith in Jesus’ atonement for your sins you are in league with the demons and Satan himself. So even if you choose not to believe in Jesus as your Savior, then by default you are choosing to be in the same place as Satan. While some people seem to think that being in hell will be like an eternal party, that is not the way the Bible describes it. The rich man said that he was in torment and he longed for only one drop of water because of the fire. There is no joy in hell only suffering and it goes on forever because your immortal soul is imprisoned there away from God.

God loves you!
