What if I told you that something you have desperately wanted is totally possible? If you are like me, you have desired to go deeper with God but just didn’t know how. I am going to do the unthinkable because I am going to dare you to go deeper with God.
First things first. In order to go deeper with God, you have to have a personal relationship with God. Do you know Jesus as your personal Savior?
- Have you come to the place in your life where you have acknowledged that you are a sinner, totally deserving nothing better than death itself?
- Have you looked to the cross where Jesus Christ shed His precious blood and died for your sins and accepted Him as your personal Savior? Jesus was raised from death so that you would not have to die but could live eternally in Heaven with God. There is no other way to experience eternal life than the cross. Being a ‘good’ person or doing ‘good’ things won’t get you there.
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23)
” . . . God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8)
All you have to do is to BELIEVE that Jesus is the Son of God and ask Him into your life. It is that simple!!
“But as many as receive Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.” (John 1:12)
It is THAT simple!
You see, it is more than just wanting to go deeper with God. He has to be living inside of you and then you can put the desire with the action.
I just wanted to be sure that was understood. If I have just one reader who isn’t saved, I wouldn’t want her to read my post and make the assumption that just doing what I recommend will bring her deeper with God.
You have to have the foundation of Jesus Christ in order to tap into a deeper relationship.
All that being said,
I Dare You to GO Deeper with God
Going deeper with God will be the experience of your life!
Start by telling Him what is on your heart and that you want to experience Him in a deeper way than ever before.
He will NOT disappoint you!!
I want to dare or challenge you to spend 5-30 minutes each day reading the Bible and praying.
That might be hard depending on the age of your children or what you have going on in your life. Maybe you work outside your home. Even if you work at home, your business can call your name before you have taken that time alone with Him.
- Read your Bible
- Start with prayer
Do BOTH of those things each day for the next 30 days and you will be taking a very important step in the right direction towards going deeper with God.
I promise you.
