Know God

Why is heaven appealing to so many people? Why do those who claim to not be religious still hold beliefs about heaven? Our culture doesn’t know much about heaven, and yet it maintains a positive attitude about it.

Why do most people want to go to heaven? Because God created each of us with an internal sense there’s more beyond this life. We are designed for an eternal life and it begins the moment we die. Some people try to ignore it, while others reject it—atheists publicly oppose it. Even still, there’s a feeling within all of us that keeps coming back to heaven. An Old Testament author said God “has planted eternity in the human heart” (Ecclesiastes 3:11).

How do you go to heaven? The answer is simple but sobering. You have to be perfect. Not mostly perfect, but absolutely perfect. This means you can’t have a bad day or a moment of weakness where you give into temptation. Ever.

The reason is God lives in heaven and He is absolutely pure and holy. We can’t be in His presence unless we are pure as well. Just one sin is enough to prevent us from entering heaven. The Bible says, “No one is righteous—not even one” (Romans 3:10).

That’s the bad news, but here’s the good news: With Jesus, you don’t have to be perfect. God sent His Son to our world to take away our sins. Jesus was perfect and never sinned, but He took all of our sins to the cross. His death was the judgment we deserve. The Bible says, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

Jesus made a way for you to be pure and spend eternity in heaven. You only have to accept God’s gift. Ask Jesus to come into your life, turn away from your sins, and trust He is the only way to heaven.


Does God exist? Is there a God? How do we know God is real? These questions have been asked for decades—even centuries. People want proof, evidence and arguments for the existence of God.

The answer is available but it requires one thing: keep an open mind. Jesus made this promise to anyone seeking truth: “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. … For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds” (Matthew 7:7-8).

You have already asked yourself if God is real or not, but go one step further. What if God exists, loves you, and wants you to know Him? For this theory to be proven true, God would have to reveal Himself to you. Not only would it answer the question but it would eliminate all doubt.

Let’s go through some evidence. God is not quiet. He announced Himself when He created the universe. The Bible says, “Since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see His invisible qualities—His eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God” (Romans 1:20).

If the universe was created by some random accident then there is no reason why it operates in an orderly manner and adheres to multiple laws. Yet, our world has structure—so much so the solar system was named accordingly. The reason why the universe obeys the laws of gravity, physics, energy and many others is because it was designed by a logical and orderly God.

But God went even further to reveal Himself when He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth. Christ was human but also divine. Jesus declared He is God and then backed up His claim in many ways. He shared Himself with thousands of people during His ministry, and again to hundreds more after His death and resurrection.

In your search for truth, focus more of your effort on Jesus. You’ll discover He loves you. The clearest proof God is real is in Jesus’ prediction He would be killed and then come back to life a few days later. Not only did it prove He was God to everyone, but it clearly displayed His love for all of us. His death was the sacrifice that makes it possible for you to spend eternity with the living God who loves you and wants a relationship with you.


Many people say being a good person and treating others right is enough to get to heaven. Others say obeying the Ten Commandments is the only way to heaven. Then there are some who believe everyone will go to heaven, because God is too loving to send people to hell.

With so many conflicting views on how to go to heaven and what it is, we know they can’t all be right—just like all roads don’t lead to the same place. But we do get a clear answer through the life of Jesus Christ.

Jesus came from heaven to a world full of evil. The Bible says: “In him was life, and the life was the light of men. … The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world” (John 1:4, 9). Jesus was God in human flesh, both human and divine. When Jesus walked the earth, people called Him “the Messiah,” which means “anointed one” because He was sent to save the world.

He did that by dying on a cross to pay the price for our sins. But He didn’t stay dead. He came back to life three days later and met with people to prove He was alive before returning to heaven.

Jesus is the only one to die for us and rise again—all to provide a way for us to spend eternity with Him in heaven. Jesus Himself put it this way: “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). Notice in His statement, there’s no mention of doing good, of going to church, of having great character. All of these are pleasing to God, but Jesus is the only way to God. Being saved comes through Christ alone. By believing in Him, He says, “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 16:19).

Today, as the world struggles with seemingly insurmountable problems, these dark and menacing situations accentuate the brightness of the One who proclaimed, “I am the light of the world” (John 8:12).


The short answer is yes! God wants you to bring your concerns to Him, and He has promised to listen when you do.

In the Bible, there’s a book called Psalm. In it, a man named David wrote, “As for me, I call to God … and he hears my voice” (Psalm 55:16-17). God not only hears, but He is eager to respond.

So does prayer work? Why does it seem like God doesn’t hear you? How do you really know if He does?

Sometimes, our prayers may seem to go unanswered because God is keeping us from something that isn’t best. He may answer prayer with a “Yes,” “No” or “Wait.” That might not be what we want to hear, but we see only part of the picture where God sees all of it.

The most important thing, however, is that we all have a problem that can hinder our prayers, and we have to deal with that first. That problem is called sin.

Sort of like weeds choke out a plant, sin keeps us from getting the light – the answers we need from God. Sin is anything we do or don’t do that goes against God’s moral standard. It’s falling short of His perfection. Like two cliffs with no bridge between them, sin always cuts us off from God. And we’re all guilty of it.

Whether it’s a crime or bad habits, jealousy or putting material things before God, sin pollutes our souls. That’s why Jesus Christ came to this earth, to take our sins upon Himself so we can be made clean inside and be in relationship with God.

He spans the gap between those cliffs and reconnects us with the God who made us and loves us. Through Jesus, we become friends with God again, and in friendship He listens to us and cares for us.

When we consider whether God is hearing us, the first and most important question is whether we have a relationship with Him. Prayer is not just getting or asking or even demanding. Prayer is conversation between God and those who know Him.

Do you know that you need God’s forgiveness? Do you believe that the only way to receive it is to know that Jesus has taken the punishment for your sin so you can be forgiven?


Are you searching for hope? It may seem hard to find. The world is full of uncertainty, doubt, pain and sorrow. This is how life gets us down.

But the Bible promises there’s much more to life than what we see on this earth. There’s a lasting hope and you can find it.

When you feel hopeless, it’s like being in an invisible jail cell. The lack of motivation and persistent apathy prevent you from moving forward. Every challenge and opportunity is met with a reply of “What’s the point?” But there’s a way out.

You can’t see God, but He sees you and loves you. He created you, and He wants you to make Him the most important part of your life. He promises that if you believe in His Son, Jesus Christ, you can be with Him for eternity.

You can have hope for an eternity without pain, despair, sadness or death. Don’t let the feeling of hopelessness continue.

The Bible says, “For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience” (Romans 8:24-25).

God loves you so much that He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for your sins. If you believe in Him, turn from your sins, and accept Jesus as Lord, you will live forever with Him in heaven and discover the hope that can never be taken away.
