Dave asked me another great question. I was honored to lead him to Jesus and so he is my special brother. Let me see if I can help him and anyone who is interested. If you would like to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior or just learn more, contact me on FB or by e mail. My e mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let’s get to the question—What Do You Do To Get Faith? The answer starts with the Born Again experience. A person without Jesus is nowhere and without God. That person may complain and rail at that but it is the truth. You may pray a hundred times a day. You may be the holiest person. You may help every old lady across the street. You may be scrupulously honest. You may be scrupulously moral but none of this will help you. It may help you be loved in this world but it won’t help you to find God.
Finding God is a gift. It is a pure gift from God but you must add your true desire. Everyone with a true desire to find God will find the REAL God and that is Jesus. I know I will be hit with virtual tomatoes at my computer screen but luckily you can’t hit me 😀
However, the larger point is that you can mess around with ersatz god things for you whole life and think you got somewhere. You can mess around with Buddha, Krisna and the rest of them but you will never find the true God, not in a million years. When you die, you won’t be able to be with God in the next world. You will be in darkness in a very real place known.
I know people are fuming that I am narrow minded. The politically correct police are gearing with with their politically correct weapons and chomping at the bit. However, it does not matter how many people disagree. Truth is not based on consensus. IT JUST IS.
Let me get back to the topic from the little digression. The first thing that one must do to get faith is to find the right God. Once one finds the right God, one needs to develop a relationship with Him. That is really the topic of this article.
First of all, once must get Born Again. One must accept that one is a sinner( done wrong) and cannot rid oneself of this on one’s own. One must accept that Jesus performed the sacrifice that will reconcile one to God. If this seems far out, let me present the prophecies. In the Old Testament are dozens and dozens of passages foretelling the future in minute detail. There is no book written, ever in the history of all mankind, that could tell the future with no error . The prophecies are the divine hand print of God on the Bible. The prophecies tell you that you can believe the rest.
I will be back.
