For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. -John 3:16
In God all things exist and outside of Him there is no truth. This means that we will all have to bow to Him sooner or later, but unfortunately after we die it’s too late to get saved. So with this in mind, logical thinking tells us that bowing to Him in this life is the wiser choice. In the book of Proverbs we read that “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,” and “happy is the man that fears the Lord.” Fearing Him translates into right thinking for us because at that moment of awe and fear of the Lord, we realize that unlike man, God is Holy. God is also our eternal, loving creator that even foreknew us before we were born. Because of this, His eternal judgments towards us are perfect. That is why He sent Him who knew no sin to be sin for us on the cross. God’s only son had to come down from heaven, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin because a perfect man had to take our place.
Many generations ago before sin came into the world there was uninterrupted fellowship with God and dominion given to man on the earth. But man gave up stewardship of the earth to a fallen cherub and therefore unlocked sin leading to death through his own disobedience to God. Adam was disobedient, but Eve was deceived. Now God is a generational God and the God of all mankind. It can be very hard for man to understand this at times because of the fallen state we’re born into. But we’re not all called to the Son by the Father at the same time in our lives, but we are all called, and through a conviction of sin in our hearts we perceive that we need a savior. There is no truth outside of God and there is salvation in the name of Jesus Christ, God’s only son. There is nothing better than loving Him and giving your life to Jesus by faith with true repentance of heart. When you do this you will become a born again child of God, and enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.
After you get saved go and be water baptized, God will provide the right person to baptize you. God is not looking for you to be seen by man as a religious person, so don’t worry about pressures from people in the church. He is the God of the innermost place of your heart. He knows you. He loves you. Stay close to Him, and stay in the word of God. Keep your heart free from all bitterness and offense, love your God and love your neighbor all the days of your life. This is a very profitable way for us to live.
