All people have questions. We are inquisitive by nature. And in this age of pluralism, atheism, and skepticism, many people are searching for truth and the answers to life’s ultimate questions.
We know that God is real because He has revealed Himself to us in three ways: in creation, in His Word, and in His Son, Jesus Christ.
The most basic proof of God’s existence is simply what He has made. “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse” ([Romans 1:20]
Not only has God made an intricate and finely tuned physical world; He has also instilled a sense of eternity in the heart of every person ([Ecclesiastes 3:11]. We have an innate perception that there is more to life than meets the eye, that there is an existence higher than this earthly routine. Our sense of eternity manifests itself in at least two ways: law-making and worship.
People all over the world, regardless of culture, have always cultivated a system of worship. The object of worship may vary, but the sense of a “higher power” is an undeniable part of being human. Our propensity to worship accords with the fact that God created us “in His own image” ([Genesis 1:27]
God has also revealed Himself to us through His Word, the Bible. Throughout Scripture, the existence of God is treated as a self-evident fact. God revealed Himself is through His Son, In Jesus’ amazing life, He kept the entire Old Testament law perfectly and fulfilled the prophecies concerning the Messiah ([Matthew 5:17]. He performed countless acts of compassion and public miracles to authenticate His message and bear witness to His deity ([John 21:24-25]. Then, three days after His crucifixion, He rose from the dead, a fact affirmed by hundreds of eyewitnesses ([1 Corinthians 15:6] The historical record abounds with “proof” of who Jesus is. As the Apostle Paul said, this thing “was not done in a corner” ([Acts 26:26]
