PERHAPS

 

Perhaps you haven’t yet entered into a Father-child relationship with God Perhaps you’ve never exercised “repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ” (Acts 20:21), and consequently, you haven’t experienced a new birth into His family. Perhaps you think God has no interest in you. Here are three truths that can change your mind, your life and your eternal destiny:

 

GOD WANTS TO INTRODUCE YOU TO YOU. He wants you to see yourself not as you see yourself, but as He sees you, and you need to see yourself as being in truth, spiritually dead in sin, spiritually disoriented by sin and underneath sin’s condemnation which is eternal separation in hell from His presence. Furthermore God wants you to see yourself as completely unable, in and of yourself to do anything about your condition (Eph. 2:8, 9; Tit. 3:4-6). Until you are introduced to yourself as you really are you will have no inclination to either repent towards God or by faith receive Jesus Christ as your Savior.

 

GOD WANTS TO INTRODUCE HIMSELF TO YOU. He does this in His Word. The various names attributed to Him and His attributes reveal to us as He is all-knowing, universally and always present and preeminently powerful; that He is the very Essence goodness, holiness, justice and righteous judgment. He is the essence of truth and mercy, and love (Ps. 136:1; Jer. 9:24;  John 14:6). His greatness is unsearchable and He is worth of all worship (Ps. 145:3, 4). God wants you to know that He “so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoseoever believeth in him should not perish, but have ever lasting life, “ and that He is the “God of our salvation,” able, willing and wanting to “gift” whoever will come to Him on His terms (John 3:16; Isa. 12:2; 1 Tim. 2:3, 4;  2 Pet. 3:9; Rom. 10:11-13).

 

GOD WANTS TO INTRODUCE HIMSELF THROUGH YOU. His presence within you will both incline you toward, and empower you to, tell others why they should and how they can, be saved. This is something that is taught and seen happening in the Bible. It is the common experience of new believers today. Once you are saved God wants to use your lips and your life, to introduce Himself to others (Matt. 28:19, 20; Mark 5:18—20; John 4:29; Acts 1:8; Ps. 126; Prov. 11:30).
