As the father of four children, I get asked a lot of questions on a daily basis. In fact, my 2-year-old son is always asking, “What is that?” as he points to an object. Some of the questions in life have a simple answer. Other questions in life are not so simple. God must be a “Jeopardy” fan because He gave us the Answer to the hardest question we could ever ask — even before we ever asked it. The Answer is a person. His name is Jesus.
The Book of Revelation says that Jesus is the Lamb “slain from the foundation of the world.” This means that before you ever sinned, God had already provided your Savior. God knew the most difficult question you could ever ask would be, “How can I know God?” Throughout history, man has made many attempts to answer this question. All of man’s answers involve some process we must go through in order to get to God. Every other religion emphasizes man’s attempt to get to God.
Christianity is not a religion. It is a personal relationship with God through His Son, Jesus. God’s Answer was to send His Son to us instead. He knew we could never get to Him on our own. That is why Jesus came into the world. He came to save sinners. You may be dealing with some difficult questions in your life right now. Some of them may seem impossible to answer. Even as a Christian, life can be difficult. Honestly God has not given us every answer to every question we may have. But He has answered the biggest one. He has taken sin out of the way so that we might know Him. Would you like to know God? His name is Jesus.
