“Are you searching for meaning in your life? It may seem at times that God is playing a game of “Hide & Go Seek” with us. The good news is that He “gives light to everyone” (John 1:9) and wants to be found! God has custom-designed the universe “so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out to him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us.” (Acts 17:27) Pascal, the philosopher, put it like this, “God has placed within each one of us a God-shaped vacuum, that can only be filled by God alone.” There is a problem, however: We are separated from God.“The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.” John 1:5 God is on one side and all the people are on the other side. 1Timothy 2:5.“Here’s the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness because their deeds were evil.” John 3:19 The trouble is that your sins have cut you off from God. Isaiah 59:2“Yes, all have sinned; all fall short of God’s glorious ideal.” Romans 3:23 “For the wages of sin is death…but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23“God is on one side and all the people on the other side, and Christ Jesus, is between them to bring them together, by giving his life for all mankind.” I Timothy 2:5-6 “I am the light of the world.” “Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12“For God so loved the world he gave his only Son so that anyone who believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 How can I be forgiven and receive eternal life? Tell God (a.k.a. “pray”) the A B C ’s of forgiveness : “God, I Admit that I am a sinner and I ask for your forgiveness. I Believe that you love me and that you sent Jesus to pay the penalty for my sin. I Choose to turn my life over to you and make you Lord of my life.”If you have just prayed this prayer, angels in heaven are rejoicing and we’d like to rejoice with them!
