How to know God personally

1. Recognize that humanities greatest problem is sin, and as a human being, you too have sinned.
"For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)

2. Realize that God loves you and has provided forgiveness and eternal life for you through His Son.
"For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)

3. Respond to who Jesus is in prayer.
"That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (Romans 10:9-10)

4. Repent and turn from your sin.
"Repent therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord." (Acts 3:19)

5. Receive Jesus Christ as your Savior.
"But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become the children of God, to them who believe in His name." (John 1:12)
