"How do I come to God?"
the book of John, chapter 4, verse
24, we read:
is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship
in spirit and in truth."
Since God is Spirit, we must
come to Him in Spirit, that is, in prayer.
the Bible has much more to say on this subject...
The Lord says in John 6:63,
words that I speak unto you are spirit..."
"Ho, every one
that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he
that hath no money;
come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy
wine and milk without
money and without price.
Wherefore do ye spend
money for that which is not bread?
and your labour for
that which satisfieth not? hearken
diligently unto me,
and eat ye that which is good, and let your
soul delight itself
Incline your ear, and
come unto me: hear, and your soul shall
live; and I will make
an everlasting covenant with you,..."
Notice the last statement of
"Incline your ear and come unto me..."
This passage is saying that we
come unto Him by simply coming unto His Word.
Notice the very next phrase,
"hear, and your soul shall live"
The Lord says this, because in
John 1:1, we read:
the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,
the Word was God."
then, in the same chapter,
verse 14, He says:
"And the Word was
made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we
beheld His glory, the
glory as of the only begotten of the
Father) full of grace
These passages are speaking of
a very profound truth. They are saying that the
person of the Lord Jesus Christ,
is the Word. Notice that these verses together say
that, "the Word" who
is God (vs 1) was "made flesh" (vs 14). In the book of
chapter 19, verse 13,
it speaks of Jesus and says:
name is called the Word of God."
Since Jesus, in a profound
and spiritual way, is the Word of God, it makes perfect
sense that we can come to God
by simply coming to His Word.
As we bow down our
ear and hear (or read) what His
Word says, we are communing with the Almighty.
We are worshiping Him with our
attention. We are coming to God and we are
partaking of Christ. Just as
Jesus is our savior, as the Bible declares, God uses His
Word to save us. Here are some
verses which show this:
1 Peter 1:23
This particular truth will
be discussed much more as the construction of this web
site progresses. My heart now
echoes to you the words of that Isaiah
55: 3 passage:
your ear and come...(unto
Jesus) hear, and your soul
I hope and pray that you can
taste and see that the Lord is gracious. He is so good,
to know Him is life. There
really is no greater joy; and to be apart from Him is
