Five things you must know in order to know God
1. You must know that God loves you.
"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."
- John 3:16
2. You must know that you are a sinner, and your sin separates you from God.
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."
- Romans 3:23
3. You must know that all sin must be paid for.
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
- Romans 6:23
* Wages means payment. The only way you can pay for your own sins is to spend eternity in hell.
4. You must know that Christ has paid the penalty for sins.
* He did this when he died on the cross.
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
- Romans 5:8
5. You must know that your own sins are paid for.
* You must personally pray and receive Jesus Christ as your savior.
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
- Romans 10:13
