Does God exist?

We are born worshippers! The Bible says that God has put eternity in the hearts of men.  In other words we instinctively know that there is more to life than what we can see, hear, touch or taste. Sure, we crowd this sense of God out by our frenetic life styles. But all the business in the world can’t take away that nagging feeling that there is more to life than the physical world. That’s why wherever you go in the world people are worshipping something. That’s why in the UK over 80% of people say they believe that there is a God. That’s why John Paul Satre the noted athiest and existentialist who stood for much of his life against any notion of God, ended his days by writing these words:

“I do not think that I am the product of chance but rather of a creating hand, and the creator I speak of is God.” It’s one thing to live with atheism, it is quite another to die with it.

We know that God exists because we have a conscience

The word conscience literally means, “with knowledge.” In other words when we do something either right or wrong we do it with an in built knowledge that it is right or wrong. That’s why that no matter where you go in the world, sleeping with someone else’s wife is wrong, as if murder and lying. And we don’t need anyone to tell us something is wrong, we feel guilty and ashamed because of our God given conscience.

We know that God exists because of Jesus

Jesus said that “No one has seen God at any time but the Son has made Him known.” In other words Jesus came to earth to make the invisible God known to us and to make a way for us to get  back in relationship with Him by being punished on the cross in our place. In fact the only reason we ask the question in the first the place “how do we know that there is a God” is because we naturally do not know Him, we are cut off from Him because of our guilt. So the only true way to know God for ourselves is to receive forgiveness by trusting in Jesus and turning away from sin. Then the God who we don’t know becomes the God that we do know!
