This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #378 titled, “How to Find Your Way to God” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.
Over the years I have talked to thousands of people who have asked me how to find their way to God. Some have sat in church pews all their lives but never come to personally know God. Others have sought for ultimate meaning in all sorts of ways but never found the peace of mind for which they were searching. Some simply realize that there is something vital missing in their lives.
The Bible teaches that this sense of lostness is rooted in the fact that we live in a fallen world. We are all handicapped by a sin nature: The Bible says in Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God”. And despite our best efforts, we are unable to remove the haunting weight of guilt that separates us from our Creator.
God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to solve the dilemma caused by our sin. The Bible says in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Jesus Christ made the way to God for us by His death on the cross. He purchased our salvation by the shedding of His Blood. His death and resurrection made a new and everlasting covenant between God and humanity.
Jesus told his disciples, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” He did not merely point the way to God. He Himself claimed to be the only way to the Father and the source of eternal truth and life.
The way to God is through personal faith in Jesus Christ. Intellectual acceptance of Christ is not enough. You must come to Him determined to turn from what displeases Him, with a total trust in Christ’s saving power for you.
Christ promises those who turn to him: “He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”
Today you can come to Him by surrendering your life and heart to Christ. The Bible says in John 1:12: “But as many as received Him [Jesus Christ], to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His Name:”
Right where you are, ff you are willing to trust Jesus Christ with all of your heart so you can go to Heaven, please pray with me what is called the sinner’s prayer: Holy Father God, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and I admit that I have sinned against You and that I have broken Your Ten Commandments. I have lied before. I have stolen things before. I have lusted after people and things before. I have dishonored and disobeyed my parents. I have taken Your holy Name in vain. For Jesus Christ’s sake, please have mercy and grace upon my soul and forgive me of all of my sins, my failures, and my faults. As I now believe in Your Holy Son the Lord Jesus Christ. I believe that He suffered, bled, and died on the cross for my sins, was buried and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and help me to repent of my sins past. Help me to turn from my old, evil life and follow You in the new life. For it is in Your Name I pray. Amen.
If you sincerely put your faith in Christ, God promises not only to forgive you, but also to adopt you into His family. It’s the greatest gift you will ever receive!
