4 Simple Steps
4 simple steps are necessary in
establishing life's most important relationship. That's
what a relationship with Jesus really is.
The book of Colossians in the bible tells us that all
things were made by Him and for Him and that includes
you. You were made by Jesus and for Jesus. But
we're missing this person we're made for because we've
been basically, living for ourselves instead of for Him.
The bible calls it sin. We have run our lives instead
of God running them. That sin has a high price tag.
The book of Isaiah in the bible says that your sin has
separated you from God. Sin has put a wall between you
and the one you were made for. You're cutoff from the
one who has the love, the meaning, and answers you need.
If you die with that wall still there, it is there forever.
In the book of Romans in the bible, God says the penalty
for sin is death. Our sin carries an eternal death penalty.
But here's the greatest news you'll ever hear.
God loves you so much that He sent His son Jesus to pay
for your sin. In the book of Peter, we learn Jesus carried
our sins in His own body when he died on the cross. When
Jesus was dying on the cross He was taking the death penalty
you and I deserve. You did the sinning Jesus did
Now you can be forgiven and have every sin you've ever
committed erased from God's book. The wall between you
and God can come down. You can be guaranteed you will
go to heaven when you die.
God tells us in John 3:16 that He loved us so much that
He sent His one and only son, Jesus. And whoever believes
in Jesus will not die, but will have everlasting life.
To believe in Jesus is like a drowning person hanging
on to a lifeguard as if that lifeguard was their only
hope. That is what I want to invite you to do with Jesus
Christ right now, right where you are. You are invited
to pray this prayer of commitment to Jesus Christ.
Jesus, I have been
running my life, and I resign. I know my sin carries
a death penalty, but I know that Jesus paid that death
penalty when He dies on the cross. Jesus, I am putting
all of my trust in you. To forgive me of my sins, to
get me to heaven, and to give the relationship I was
That commitment, from the heart, brings you into the family
of God forever. The bible says people who believe in what
Jesus said and believe in His father, will be saved. Period.
It says in the bible, nothing and no one can take you
away from Jesus once you have put your faith in Him. There's
nothing more you need to do. But there are things you
can do to grow in this new relationship.
