You and I were created in the image of God and made to be in relationship with Him. God is not mad at you; He’s madly in love with you!
“This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him.” ~ John 3:16-18
If you’ve been searching to fill that inner void in your life…the search is over, my friend. Jesus is the answer to that ache in your heart, the longing in your soul. Drugs, alcohol or any other substance cannot fill the place in your heart that Jesus was meant be fill. He’s been knocking on the door of your heart. Won’t you let Him come in? He’ll wash away your sins and make you brand new if you’ll allow Him to.
“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.” ~ Romans 10:9-10
God will fill your heart with infinite peace and amazing joy.
Prayer: “Dear God, I ask you to forgive me of all my sins. I’m asking you to come into my heart. Make me born again, brand new in you. I turn from my sinful lifestyle and will live for you from this day forward. I receive your grace and I thank you for it. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
If you prayed that prayer, this is the first day of your brand new life in Christ! Get in a Bible believing church where they can help you to grow in your new Christian walk. Read the Bible daily, beginning in the Gospel of John. Last but not least, pray. Talk to God like you would a friend beside you. Ask Him to give you wisdom and guidance. He will never fail you, my friend.
Welcome to the family of God! Your name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life and the hope of heaven is yours. The angels are throwing a party and rejoicing at your decision for salvation. Heaven is going to be incredible!!
