Get Serious with God

Knowing God is an amazing thing. I'd like to help you to know Him.

If God has touched your heart through this site and you would like to get serious with God, it could be the beginning of something wonderful. I urge to consider deeply the fact that there is a God. He has revealed Himself in so many ways. His Holy Spirit calls you today. God is awesome, holy, and powerful – yet He loves you deeply. The stories on this site are part of a witness to you that God is real. If you are not really convinced, I urge you to read more from this site first, and maybe even write and ask questions. God has given abundant evidence to those who want to do what is right.

There are only two spiritual Kingdoms – the Kingdom of God and the kingdom of the devil. The Kingdom of God is the place where Jesus is King. In God's Kingdom there is peace, there is love, there is hope for the future. There is joy, healing, mercy, justice and living faith. In Satan's kingdom is pride, lust, disappointment, anger, hatred, bitterness, mockery, anguish, torment and strife. Anyone who is living for themselves is pleasing the devil because the devil stands for independence from God and a rejection of God's authority to rule. Our separation from God costs us more than we could possibly imagine, and part of the tragedy is that people don't see it, they are so deceived by a different spirit.

Do you believe that Jesus died to pay for the guilt of your sins? If you could have saved yourself by being good enough, or better than others, Jesus would never have died. But Jesus both died and rose from the grave three days later. This historical event shattered the power of the devil and has given mankind a chance to come back to God. All this was at God's expense. We deserved for God to walk away from us and never turn his face towards us again. But God is not like that. He loves us. He loves you.

To be saved there has to come a time in your life when you respond to God's love. There has to be a time when you recognise Him for who He is. Jesus Christ is Lord and Master, one with God the Father. Because of who He is, you must bow the knee, and surrender your own life, ambitions and dreams to Him. God has got a plan for your life. It is better than you could possibly imagine.

Perhaps you have tried in the past to follow Jesus and have failed. Perhaps you never learned to live the Christian life through God's power, not your own. Whatever the reason for your failure, God has promised that if you come to Him in humility and faith, He'll be with you and strengthen you. He means business with you, when you mean business with Him. He will forgive all your sins, and restore you, giving you the power to walk by the Spirit and not according to the desires of the sinful nature. All this is possible because of the sacrifice He made for you on the cross, and the resurrection of Christ from the dead.

God is calling. You may sense a struggle in your soul. The Holy Spirit is at work in your life. Do not wait for a more convenient time. You can only come when the Spirit of God draws you. Do you sense Him speaking to your heart? Do not grieve His Spirit away. This could be the greatest moment of your life.

Would you be willing to truly give your life to Jesus Christ? He gave His life for you. He is the One through whom everything in this universe holds together. He is the Wisdom of God. God knows what He is doing. His sacrifice shows us that He loves us more than we love ourselves. This is why we should trust and follow Him. What you don't give to God, Satan will take and use.

If you are ready to receive Christ through prayer and faith, and you are willing to trust Him and turn your back on evil, which means finding out what God wants you to do and doing it, please use the prayers below and contact Michael on this website afterwards.

For more information on how to follow Jesus, and what God has done for you, please take a look at the links below.

Please write to me and let me know of your decision.

God bless you,

Michael

    Dear Michael,

    First of all i want to thank you for helping people to know about gods love towards them. I want you to pray for me. I am 27 male living in UK. I am an indian born as a christian. I was close to god in childhood but when i grow older i was far from church and gods word, i was into world committed sin most of it was lust. I have a very big problem with lust. I sinned with couple of girls, i was into too much list. Being a christian i was married to a hindu girl in all hindu traditions with whom i always sinned. I always had fear of god and jesus but i really had no knowledge of truth and bible. I thought religion was man made and i was like 50% atheist and 50% theistic. But i always believed in only father god and jesus. Inspite of many warning from my parents and pastors that not to marry in hindu traditions i thought god would understand as i thought he looks at heart as i felt i believed in jesus in my heart i married her according to her and her parents wish in hindu tradition. Exacgly in one year we got seperated we never lived together, i have been to many stuggles, i am still struggling and trying to know ambybthings about god jesus. I strongly believe i have bad spirits speacially spirit of lust in me. I am trying my best to avoid lust but my eyes are sinning my thoughts are sin. I dont want to sin i really dont want to, i want to experience jesus love i want deliverence, please help me pray for my deliverence.

    You need to build your own self confidence and ignore fake prophets, most are out to exploit you and get cash from you. Just get on with it, life is wonderful and tragic in equal measure. Tonight our cat died and the children are distraught. Tonight in another country a whole family is at risk of dying from lack of food. So that makes my sad situation happy in relative terms. Idiotic priests on the internet are not going to make a difference, unless they charge you. Also, try telling a joke, it’s the antidote to organised religion, which is war mongering and miserable.

    • sweet.gee says:

      hi sharon. my name is gee before i’m also with your situation. first just try to pray to Him with all your heart, soul and mind that you want to know Him more, i’m sure He will answer your prayers 🙂 because He told in the Bible that whoever seeks for Him, shall find Him. and then if you have your bible start to read it, at least start with the new testament, so that you could know more about Jesus Christ who showed up here on earth to proclaim that God is real, and God manifested in Him. just don’t give up if you really want to be with Him, i will pray for you. 🙂

      Sister Carolyn,

      I just want to say your testimony is amazing! God loves us so much and your story tells the story of how no matter how ‘low’ we have gone in our lives, the Lord’s arm is not shortened that He cannot reach. His ear is not so heavy that it cannot hear the cries of a beautiful son or daughter when they cry out to Him! I am so blessed to have you as a sister.

      Tim

    {What you don’t give to God, Satan will take and use.}

    Personally I feel like this is true when it comes to loving others . I’m seeking a heart to love God but it seems possible that at regaining my heart is harder than it seems. Do you possibly have any insight?

    Hi Michael,

    Firstly, thanks for this wonderful site – it brings meaning to my life. I’m 26 years of age and have difficulty staying in relationship. I’ve always have terrible break-ups and I don’t know why? I stayed single for a year and had given up on love. I started praying that God blesses me with the “man of my dreams” and I was very descriptive. I also prayed that God changes me first in order to be a better person because I felt there was something I was doing wrong. I met this guy a month ago and when I saw him I felt so differently about him and I started asking guidance from God. I prayed about it and when we both decided that we were entering a courtship, I prayed about it everyday. We broke up not so long ago because he didn’t trust me and decided to get back together with his baby’s mother, which is a very good thing. The problem is, he didn’t tell me about it, he just started acting strange – which really hurt me, I found out about this recently from one of his cousins. I’m so hurt. When I prayed last night I told God that I was tired of being hurt and I asked Him that if I’m His child, why does He allow people to hurt me like this? I always ask God to bless the people that hurt me but this time I asked Him to rebuke them just like a father would if other kids were hurting his child. Am I wrong to pray for God to rebuke him?

    I have forgiven him in my heart, honestly. One other question, is it wrong for me to pray that he comes back or am I just being unrealistic? He was very different from the other guys that I’ve dated and truth is I still love him. I know I shouldn’t give up on love and all the wonderfull things it offers, but why do I always get raw deals? Am I doing something wrong?

    I firmly believe in God and the Word, I understand what He wants from me and I also understand His promises to me. I was so dissapointed and I felt like the devil was attacking me. I knelt down and told God how dissapointed I was and how weak I felt. I’m stronger now but still need perspective. I trust in the Lord, He has done so many wonderful things for me. He has blessed in each and every aspect of my life. I just need perspective and strength.

    • Hi Mmamorake ,

  9. Hi Michael,
    Thanks for you testimony, I’m 41, single and attracted to men and have been involved with men.
    Like your childhood mine was similar, hanging out with girls more than the guys, but yet wanting to be one of the guys.
    Being called “fag” , “queer”,…..from friends and even my own mother! That hurt the most. Pray that I would get back into the church, because the support and love helped out alot. I used to be involved in the church but my job for the past eight years requires me to work on Sundays, I know it sounds simple , just take Sundays off right? Well, that’s my next step,pray that God will work through this as I ask for Sundays off. Also, please pray for me and this gay identity and lifestyle that deep in my heart I don’t desire!!! Please send me any suggestions for help. God Bless you and your family.
    Alfonse.

    • Hi Alfonse,

      This is probably exaclty what you’re looking for:

      http://exodus.to/content/view/417/180/

      It looks like a real Christian organisation.

      It should help.

    • Rameriz says:

      Dear Mr.Alfonse,
      While I am glad that you have joined the community of God, I must tell you something.
      I don’t believe that being gay or bisexual is a sin.
      My belief is that that is how He made you. You shouldn’t try to repress one the unique things about you that God himself did.
      People were created differently so that we could have tolerance and understanding.
      It’s my belief that if you repress this part of yourself, then you will be doing the world a injustice, for showing tolerance of people who are different cannot be done when the beautiful people don’t accept themselves for who they are.
      In any case to what you decide,
      Peace be with you and God bless.
      -Rameriz

      Afonso, there is a Christian song that says this. Jesus take me as I am, I can come no other way. Make me like a precious stone crystal clear and finely honed, life of Jesus shing through, giving glory back to you. Dude, give your life back to the Lord, let Him work out the rest for you, Dueteronomy 31:6 says I will never fail you or forsake you. Jesus takes us on, where we are at in our lives, He loves you and will help you with all your needs, and deliver you from all your worries. Regards, The Count.
