Q:

I'd really like to find God, but I get confused because there are so many religions. I didn't grow up in a religious family, but I've studied some of the main religions, although I haven't made much progress. Maybe you can help me.


A:

Down inside, we all have a hunger for God (even if we don’t realize it) — and my prayer is that you won’t give up until God Himself has satisfied the hunger you feel in your soul.

And you can come to know God — because God wants you to know Him! He made you, and He loves you — and more than anything else, He wants you to come to know Him and go to live with Him forever in heaven. And He has made this possible by sending His Son into the world to reconcile us to God. The Bible says, “For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God” (1 Peter 3:18).

How is this possible? It’s possible because Jesus Christ came to tear down the barrier between us and God — a barrier caused by our sin. God is holy and perfect, and even one sin would keep us from His presence. But on the cross all our sins were transferred to Jesus, and He took upon Himself the judgment and Hell we deserved. Now we can be forgiven and cleansed of our sins — and when that happens, the barrier is torn down. We can know God!

Now God offers us salvation as a free gift — free, because Jesus Christ has already paid the price for it. My prayer is that you will reach out and accept that gift today, by asking Christ to come into your life as your Lord and Savior.

    I am so blessed because only Jesus death and resurrection has made those who accepted Him as his/her personal savior saved. And it is not by man's works but merely by grace of God or as a free gift salvation through faith in Jesus. Therefore I urge you to accept Jesus as your personal savior and Lord now. He is the only way to heaven (John 14:6). I remind you that today is the day of your salvation. God bless you.

    Yes SMN – Jesus is the Truth – Jesus is God Almighty in human flesh. I urge you to look at Jesus ONLY – no other religions or no other great men of religions. Also nother great men of religion had ever risen from the dead – they are still in their graves. Only Jesus Christ have risen from the dead because he is God HImself Look into New Testment of the Holy Bible and believe me, pls trust the Holy Bible as God's word, it contains so many prophecies for today and tomorrow

    I'm happy that you have this desire to know Almighty God. You have many choices regarding religions and beliefs but I want to encourage you to settle for nothing less than the truth. I would suggest you begin by reading carefully starting with the New Testament of the Holy Bible. If you are honest with yourself you will not be able to deny what is written. Man chose sin which separated us from our Father and the only way we are reconciled is through Jesus. God wants you in His family so bad and has promised us we will be joint heirs with His only begotten son, what an offer! No other religion has a Savior to give us what we can't accomplish on our own. Please choose carefully, the stakes don't get any higher.
