Just this past weekend the question was posed to me: "How do you explain that God really exist?" I hate to say this, you will never fully be able to explain how God is real until you personally have experienced Him in a real manner. The only way to experience God is through Christ. Having a relationship with Him. It is the same idea as explaining a restaurant. How can you fully explain the taste of the food, the atmosphere, and the service without first experiencing it? I know, it is utterly impossible. How do you pose that you will explain whether God exist or not if you've never given it a try? I would love to prove God to you today. Jesus states, "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father but by Me." (John 14:6) The only way to truly experience God is this:
Understand and know that you are not perfect. Christ stated to the Pharisees that he did not come to save the righteous. No one is perfect. Romans 3:23 says that everyone sins and no one can meet the mark that God has set up. You can try everyday of the week to be good and great, but it won't get you to Heaven. Ephesians 2:8 says that it is only by grace that we are saved through faith, not anything we can do, because it is a gift from God.
Believe that Christ paid the ultimate price for your life. You know this verse- John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only son, that whoever believes in Him, will not die but have eternal Life." Understand that what Christ did on the cross was not in vain, but for your eternal life, your soul.
Last is pray- Ask God to forgive you of all your sins. Ask God to save you and He will! In Romans 10:9 it says that if anyone confesses Jesus Christ and believes in his heart the God raise him from the dead, then he is saved! John 14:15 says that whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, then that person is in God and God is in him!
This is the only way you can ever experience the awesomeness of God! He is real. He is alive.... It's all up to you now.
