Perhaps things have not gone the way you planned.
You’re discouraged. You want to give up because no one seems to care or understand.
But someone does care. Someone who loves you very much!
God says Jeremiah 31:3b – “I have loved you with an everlasting love.”
No matter what has happened, no matter what you have done, no matter how you have lived your life, God is personally interested in you, and He cares what happens to you. He loves you! He cares about you. He understands your frustration, your loneliness, your heartaches, your pain.
He wants you to come to Him so He can take care of your greatest need and give you a new life..a fulfilling life of love, joy and peace.
Jesus said in John 10:10 – “I have come that you might have life and that you might have it abundantly.”
Perhaps you have been living your life without God, trying to get your needs met without Him, and found it has only brought emptiness and unhappiness. God says living your life your own way, apart from Him is sin. Sin separates us from God. But God loves you and has provided the only way to be forgiven and to experience fulfillment and true happiness.
The Bible says in Romans 5:8, “But God has shown us how much He loves us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us!”
Jesus Christ, God’s Son, not only died to pay the penalty for your sin but He conquered death when He rose from the grave.
He is alive today, and will come to live in you by His spirit.
He will give you a new beginning if you surrender the control of your life to Him.
When you ask Him to forgive your sin and enter your life, He will enable you to live in a way that is fulfilling to you and pleasing to God.
He will give you a new life that will last forever.
The Bible says in John 3:16, “For God loved the world so much that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him, may not die but have eternal life.”
Now that I understand who Jesus Christ is and what He did for me, I want to receive Him as my Savior and Lord.
I do believe You are the Son of God and that you died on the cross to pay the penalty for my sin.
Please come into my life, forgive my sin, and make me a member of Your family. I now turn from going my own way. I want You to be the center of my life.
Thank You for Your gift of eternal life and for your Holy Spirit, who has now come to live in me.
I ask this in your name. Amen.
Now that you have prayed that prayer, do you know what has just happened? God has accepted you just the way you are. He has forgiven you of all your sins. He has given you His Holy Spirit to guide you and empower you and you now have eternal life.
How did that happen?
You prayed, confessing your sin of living for yourself instead of living for God. You put your faith in Jesus Christ and what He did for you when He died on the cross, rose from the grave, and ascended into heaven. He is alive today!
What happened to you? You received Jesus Christ, who said if you would open the door of your life to Him, He would come in and
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him…” – Revelation 3:20, NASB
