HOW CAN I HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD?

AT THE BEGINNING OF TIME GOD CREATED HUMANITY. HUMANITY CHOSE TO DISOBEY GOD AND IN THAT MOMENT HUMANITY WAS CUT OFF FROM A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD. HOWEVER, GOD HAD A PLAN TO RECONCILE AND RESTORE HUMANITY TO HIMSELF. THAT PLAN INCLUDED GOD, WHO CREATED THE UNIVERSE (WHICH INCLUDES US), BECOMING A HUMAN. GOD CAME TO THE EARTH IN THE FORM OF HUMAN AND THAT MAN'S NAME WAS JESUS CHRIST. 


JESUS LIVED A PERFECT LIFE ON EARTH FOR ABOUT 33 YEARS. HE HEALED. HE TAUGHT. HE PREACHED. HE LOVED. DURING HIS ENTIRE TIME ON EARTH HE NEVER SINNED.HE NEVER FAILED GOD. HE NEVER DISOBEYED. HE WAS TEMPTED AND TRIED AND PERSECUTED, BUT HIS LOVE FOR THE HEAVENLY FATHER WAS SO GREAT, HE NEVER GAVE IN TO HIS WILL OR HIS DESIRES. HIS ONLY DESIRE WAS TO DO THE WILL OF THE FATHER. 


THE WILL OF THE FATHER WAS TO SACRIFICE JESUS FOR US. GOD HAS SO MUCH LOVE FOR US THAT HE DOES NOT WANT US TO DIE AND SPEND ETERNITY SEPARATED FROM HIM. THIS IS CALLED HELL. INSTEAD HE SENT JESUS TO BE OUR SUBSTITUTE IN DEATH. JESUS WAS BEATED, EXECUTED AND CRUCIFIED ON A CROSS. HIS BODY WAS BROKEN AND HIS BLOOD WAS SPILLED, SO THAT WE MAY HAVE FORGIVENESS AND ETERNAL LIFE.


THE BIBLE TEACHES THAT WHEN WE CONFESS WITH OUR MOUTH THAT JESUS IS GOD AND HE IS LORD AND BELIEVE IN OUR HEARTS THAT HE HAS BEEN RAISED FROM THE DEAD AND IS ALIVE, THE BIBLE PROMISES WE WILL BE SAVED. WE ARE SAVED FROM HELL AND SAVED INTO AN ETERNAL RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM. 


YOU CAN BE FORGIVEN OF ALL OF YOUR SIN AND BE WITH GOD FOR ETERNITY. THE BEST PART IS THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DO ANY AMOUNT OF WORK, GOOD DEEDS, SAY THE RIGHT THING OR GIVE ANY MONEY. GOD DID ALL THE WORK FOR US THROUGH JESUS CHRIST ON THE CROSS. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS BELIEVE! WE ARE SAVED BY HIS GRACE THROUGH FAITH. HIS GRACE NEVER RUNS OUT AND HIS MERCY NEVER ENDS AND HIS LOVE NEVER FAILS.
