Please tell me in 3 easy steps how to strike an agreement with God where we both get what we want.
Here you go:
Step 1: Notice that capital ‘G’ in front of the word God. That means something. It means that God is bigger than you, more important than you, he rules, you don’t. You have been in rebellion against him all your life because you want what you want, not what he wants. You need to change that. He is God and you are not. Therefore, you need to submit to him in every area of your life. So, step one is to realize that God is God and you are not and to resolve to submit your entire life to him.
Step 2: Believe that while God is God and you are not, he loves you and wants the best for you. He wants this for your good and for his glory. What he thinks is best for you, however, is not necessarily what you think is best for you. You need to let go of what you think is best for you and study your Bible to find out what God thinks is best for you. Step two is to believe that God loves you and wants the best for you and to submit yourself to him in the specific ways the Bible tells you to submit—which involves reading the Bible in a different way than you have been doing.
Step 3: Change your mind about what you think about being with God. Right now, you believe that you will not be going to Hell when you die. But what you don’t seem to notice is that not being in Hell means that you will be with God. But right now, you hate God. Why would you want to spend eternity with someone you hate? Some people, and I’m not sure I disagree, believe that the thing that makes Hell Hell is the absence of God. Christians want to spend eternity with God and they want it so badly that they love spending time with him now. And spending time with him now means spending time with him in line with Steps 1 and 2 above. So, step three is to change your mind about spending time with God and want to spend time with him. And then spend time with him.
Following these three steps will guarantee that God will get what he wants and because it will change what you want, it will guarantee that you get what you want as well.
I hope this helps.
