God knows you, god loves you

 

God loves you so much, and He wants you to know Him. It might seem impossible to reach to God, or to know Him personally, but He is reaching to you. He chose you, He decided where and when you were going to live. He is never far from any of us. God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to be the sacrifice for the sins of every person. He died though He never sinned. But the Bible says it pleased God to crush Him. But, why? This is because of His love for you. Without this sacrifice of Jesus, you would be separated from ever, ever knowing God. We all have sinned, we all go our own way and have all gone astray from God and His righteousness. The message of the Gospel is that Jesus, though He knew no sin, was made to be sin for us when He was crucified. He was made this so we, though we are are so sinful in the sight of God's perfect holiness, would be made the righteousness of God! It is such an amazing gift! Nothing we could ever do could ever deserve this, but it is God's grace, His amazing nature that gives to overflowing, and then gives more. The most precious thing He could ever give cost Him everything He had, His Son. Through Jesus' blood, we have forgiveness of our sins. Jesus' resurrection from the dead is God's promise to You. It is His promise that Jesus was who He said He was: the Christ of the people of Israel, the Son of God, and God Himself. It is God's promise that all that trust and call on Jesus' name for the forgiveness of their sins, recognizing their inability to save themselves from hell, will be saved.

 

‘I am the LORD; I have called you in righteousness;
I will take you by the hand and keep you;
I will give you as a covenant for the people,
a light for the nations,
to open the eyes that are blind,
to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon,
from the prison those who sit in darkness.’
— Isaiah 42:6-7


Call on His name now in faith, He is alive today and will give you life and give You His Holy Spirit to be with you forever. That promise of life will be living in you, because Jesus lives, you also will live in newness of life.


But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith that we proclaim); because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
— (Romans 10:8-13 ESV)

All of the Bible is breathed-out by God, and good for us. Read about everything, get to know His ways. Read about the people who have gone before us as an example that we might persevere in our own walks with God. His Word is food for our souls, by it we grow like newborn babies. God is the treasure that once you have, no one can take Him away from you, and no one can take you from Him. He is now your portion forever, you are His child and He is Your Father.

Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation—if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good.
— (1 Peter 2:2-3 ESV)
