Is it really possible to know the Creator?
The most important decision you will ever make in life is to begin a relationship with God. He is the one who created your body, designed your personality and gave you life. He is also the one who wants to know you. God is very interested in communicatiing with you and having you learn to communicate with him.
What keeps you from having a relationship with God? The Bible says it is your sin. That word "sin" means the decisions that you have made that do not please God. No person is perfect in God's eyes, and all people have done things which are sinful. Therefore, your sin has put a barrier between you and God. The relationship God wants with you cannot begin until you remove that barrier.
The good news is that even though you have sinned, God has made a way to remove your sin and do away with the barrier that separates you from him. The way God has accomplished that is to give his son, Jesus Christ, in payment for your sin. The Bible says God sent him to earth as a human being to live among us. Then God allowed him to be put to death as a sacrifice for us. Somehow in the sacrifice of his life, Jesus paid for our sin.
What do you have to do about this truth? To begin a relationship with God, you must believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that he died for your sins. When you believe this truth in your heart and express that belief with your mouth, you experience genuine spiritual change. God's Spirit comes to live in you, your sin is forgiven and you are brought into God's family. You then have eternal life. Even though your body will die one day, you will live forever with God in heaven. Sadly, those who reject Jesus Christ will one day be forever separated from God in terrible place of suffering called hell.
You can begin a relationship with God today by believing in Jesus Christ. If you need help in making this decision and would like to talk to someone, email the ISI staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
