1. God doesn’t know anyone who isn’t a sinner. (Romans 3:23 tells us that ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of God.)
2. God doesn’t know anyone He doesn’t love. (John 3:16 tells us that God loved the WHOLE WORLD so much that He sent His Son to die for them.)
3. God doesn’t know any other way to get to heaven except through His Son, Jesus Christ. (In John 14:6, Jesus says, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”)
4. God doesn’t know any better time for you to be saved than right now. (2 Cor. 6:2 says, “Behold, now is the accepted time, now is the day of salvation.”)
Isn’t that neat? It’s not meant as a theological argument, but as a conversation starter to allow you to share the gospel.
We use this all the time with non-believers. Almost anyone is curious enough to allow a couple of minutes for us to tell them the four things God doesn’t know. And the fourth is a perfect opening to invite them to accept Christ!
IF YOU DON’T KNOW GOD, it is very simple to get to know Him.
He loves YOU! He wants to have a relationship with you. All you have to do is
Admit you are a sinner – just say something like “God, I know I’ve done wrong, and I’m sorry”
Believe that God’s Word is true: that Christ came to die for our sins, He died on the cross, rose the third day, and paid the price for every wrong thing you or I have ever done.
Confess that He is Lord. You can pray something like “Jesus, I know You are God, You died to pay the price for my sins, and You rose from the grave. I want You in my life, and I want to make You my Lord.”
You should also tell someone about your decision – a friend, a pastor, or even US! If you have accepted Christ, or if you want more information about how to be saved, we’d like to hear about it. Send us an email at the address below, and you’ll get a personal reply.
