"For the Lord your God is the God of gods and the Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God who does not show partiality nor take a bribe." Deuteronomy 10:17 (NASB-1995)
We humans tend to play favorites. God is no respecter of persons (Romans 2:11). God’s desire is that you come into fellowship with Him. Jesus died for the sins of the world. That includes my sins and your sins. He paid the sin debt for every person (John 3:14-18). Throughout history God has been working in the affairs of men, and Acts 17:27 tells us that He has done so “that they would seek God . . . and find Him.” God loves you and desires for you to repent of your sins and receive His forgiveness and the gift of eternal live through His Son, the Lord Jesus. “Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth, for I am God, and there is no other.” (Isaiah 45:22)
Once you have sought the Lord, prayed asking for God to forgive and save you, the next step is to become active in a local church, a church that emphasizes the teaching of the Bible and living thereby, my recommendation being an independent Baptist church. There you will be scripturally baptized as a public testimony of your faith in Jesus. There you will be united with other believers. We need the love and care of the family of God.
Being part of a local church, having a life of prayer, and having the custom of reading the Scriptures are habits that every believer should have. Start each day with prayer and Bible reading. Have a little booklet where you write down things to pray for. Every Christian should be reading his Bible through. I recommend that you read one to two chapters in the Old Testament in the morning and one to two chapters in the New Testament in the evening followed by a period of prayer with praise and thanking God and laying your requests before the Lord.
Your local church may use a different translation during its services; but for your Bible reading program, I recommend the Holman Christian Standard Bible. This is a good, accurate translation in contemporary English. The HCSB Study Bible is good too. The NASB follows in the KJV translation tradition and is a very relable translation in current English, and I recommend the Scofield Study Bible III NASB.
