Life can be very good and yet on any given day it can turn upside down. Something I’ve found to bring stability & purpose is living for Jesus. Therefore, no longer living for others or myself, but for the very one (Jesus) who created me and everything I see. Jesus Christ is not a crutch or a lucky rabbit’s foot, which I pull out in emergencies, but a constant, living, dependable, holistic, loving relationship. That’s what Christianity should really be about … not just a religion, but a relationship. When Jesus said “I will never leave you or forsake you, but I’ll be with you always”, it was a statement about union with him. Now there are many cool relationships in this life, but unfortunately even some of these great earthly relationships fail. However, I’ve found in walking with Jesus that this supernatural relationship doesn’t fail and that it can be counted on all the time.
The Bible promises an incredible, lasting and fulfilling relationship to all who desire to be fully surrendered to Christ …“And the witness is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, in order that you may know that you have eternal life.” (1 John 5:11-13) You can know on the basis of His promise that Christ lives in you and that you have eternal life, from the very moment you invite Him into your heart. Jesus will not deceive you!
Is there any good reason why you cannot receive Jesus Christ right now? What you must do:
1. Admit your need (I am a sinner and have made mistakes).
2. Be willing to turn from your sins (repent – truly sorry to God & a true desire to change).
3. Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the Cross and rose from the grave.
4. Through prayer, invite Jesus Christ to come and control your life (receive Him as Savior and Lord).
Scriptures to Read:
Romans 3:23 & 6:23; Luke 13:3; Acts 4:12; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 3:16-17
(Prayer): Dear Lord Jesus, I need you and realize I have been doing life on my own. I want you to be in my life and be my life. I have messed up and need your forgiveness. I believe that you died for my sins and now invite you into my heart & life. I want a personal relationship with you. I want to trust you as savior and follow you as Lord. In Jesus Name, Amen
