Hi,

Welcome to your first message, in this series.

Congratulations, by the way, on beginning a relationship with God. When you asked Jesus into your life, you began the most valuable relationship a person could have.

The night that I asked Jesus into my life, I knew it was a big decision. I had been a skeptic/atheist for years. To speak out loud, into the air, and talk to God felt monumental.

It also seemed absolutely right to do.

My prayer was brief. “Ok, you win. I ask you to come into my life. You may do with it whatever you want.”

In my mind, I was simply acknowledging God’s existence. As God, it seemed to me, he had a right to influence my life.

Here’s the first thing I noticed about God:

God is invisible. (Impressed, aren’t you?) But actually, this was an issue.

I mean, when you asked Jesus to come into your life, how do you really know that he’s there? You can’t see him.

How do you know that he really entered your life?

Does it rely on your sincerity? Or what you said in your prayer? Or how you feel?

No. None of these.

You have a relationship with God now, because he offered it to you. You simply responded to him.

This article will explain how you can be sure that Jesus is in your life — and what that means!
