Wondering About God

Is There a God?

Yes, and He came to earth in human form in the person of Jesus Christ. The Bible says in John chapter 16, verse 28: "I came from the Father and entered the world." This is why we celebrate Christmas.

Does God love me?

Yes! Look what He did to show that love: "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved." (John 3:16-17).

How should I respond to Jesus?

It's not enough to intellectually agree with Jesus' claims. If you read the Bible and recognize Jesus as the true Son of God, a man who walked the earth, lived a perfect life, died, and rose again from the dead (this is why we celebrate Easter), you must choose to cross the line of faith and receive Him. You have to start by inviting Him into your life and accepting that He paid the debt you owe for your sin but could never pay yourself. Salvation in Jesus is a totally free gift, and receiving it is as easy as saying, "Jesus, I acknowledge my sin and Your payment for it on the cross. I ask you to be my forgiver and my Lord."

Will God forgive someone like me?

Of course! You need to know that God will take you as you are, but He doesn't want to leave you as you are. He wants you to let Him make you into what He wants you to be.

Some Practical Helps

Keeping in mind the previous questions, here are some practical ideas to help you in your spiritual search:
  1. Read the Bible - start with the New Testament book of John.
  2. Talk to people who display a genuine relationship with God - those who live by a different set of principles.
  3. Stay open to actually finding what you're looking for; fear of commitment and change can keep you from finding the truth.
  4. Attend a Bible-believing church, such as First Baptist Church, and hear first-hand the claims of Jesus.
Ask God to reveal Himself to you.
