Because He is a good God, He wants to be in a relationship with you and help you. You don’t have to be perfect to have this relationship with God. All you have to do is receive the free gift of salvation made available through Jesus’ death on the cross.
When Jesus died on the cross, He traded out His perfection for our sin, and made it possible for us to be close with God. If you believe that and commit to following Him, your life will never be the same. It’s as simple as repenting of your sin, declaring you want to follow Jesus, and believing He is who He says He is.
“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,‘ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
Ready to make the choice? Here is your prayer:
Lord Jesus, I open my life to your love and your Lordship. I am sorry, I have sinned, I have messed up. But I’m coming to the cross where you paid the price for me to be forgiven. Today I receive a new beginning and a fresh start. Jesus – be my Lord, by my Master, be my best friend, and help me become the person you created me to be. Amen!
