Have you experienced victory and failure in your life? I don’t know the story of your life but I know that there is hope for every single person on this earth. When I was 25, I accepted God’s gift of redemption and have not regretted it once since then. HE builds a new life for us, despite the mess of our lives and the stumbling blocks along the way. With HIM you can overcome failure and be victorious. Let my life be a testimony to His visible grace in my life and be encouraged. Accept His gift of redemption too and let your life become a testimony of His grace!
God loves you. "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16)
It is God’s desire for you to have a fulfilled life. "Jesus said again, [...] I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." (John 10:10) But why are there so many people who don’t experience a personal relationship with God?
The purpose of our lives is fellowship with God but we often believe that we can handle life without Him. We are disobedient, stubborn or indifferent toward
Him. This attitude is described as sin in the bible. Because of it, our relationships with other people are broken and we struggle with ourselves.
"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)
What are the consequences of sin?
"But your iniquities have separated you from your God" (Isaiah 59:2)
He died for us.
"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8).
He is risen from the dead for us!
"For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve. After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time ..." (1 Corinthians 15:3-6).
He is the only way to God.
"Jesus answered, I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." John 14:6
To get to know God is not difficult. Talk to Him in prayer. The prayer below is one way to show Him your faith:
"Father God, thank you for loving me. Thank you for having good thoughts over me and a plan for my life. I am sorry that I didn’t care about you and did things that hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you, Jesus, for dying on the cross for my sins. Heal, rescue and change me as you planned it a long time ago. Jesus Christ, please be Lord over my life. I want to put my faith in you. Amen."
Is this a prayer after your heart? If yes, then you can make this your prayer too and Jesus will come into your life as He promised.
