The search for God ends in a choice: To accept or reject Christ's perfect payment for your sins.
1. Accepting God's gift involves admitting the truth about ourselves, that we have failed to measure up to God's standards and we are separated from Him.
"For the wages of sin is death (eternal separation), but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
2. Accepting God's gift involves transferring your trust from yourselves to Jesus Christ.
"But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become the children of God, to those who believe in His name."
Now you can have a personal relationship with God.
Blondin, the famous 19th century French tightrope walker, successfully crossed Niagara Falls a number of times (an 1100-foor span, 160 feet above the raging waters).
On one occasion Blondin pushed a wheelbarrow across. He then asked how many in the crowd believed he could push the wheelbarrow across with someone in it. The crowd cheered. He then asked, "Does anyone believe enough in me to get in the wheelbarrow and cross Niagara Falls with me? No one volunteered. Finally, Blondin's manager climbed on his back and they crossed the great falls together.
The crowd's belief was purely intellectual, but Blondin's manager went beyond intellectual assent to personal trust. That's the kind of faith the Bible says we must have in Christ.
