Is it time for a change in your life?
Have you made some bad choices and feel yourself wondering, “What’s the point?”
Jesus knows your pain and wants to be with you right where you are at this very moment. He wants you to know that you are loved. You are not a mistake. There is a reason you are here and a purpose for your life. And He can’t wait to show you a new way to live.
In Jeremiah 29:11 it says that He has amazing plans for your life, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” And the Bible says that God loves you so much that He gave His only Son so that you can have eternal life with Him!
“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. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” — John 3:16-17 (NIV)
It is your choice to have a relationship with Him; to accept His love and grace. No one else can do this for you. We need His love and grace because we are human and we’ve all made mistakes. These mistakes, big and small, keep us separated from having a relationship with God and our sins lead us to eternal death.
"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God..." —Romans 3:23 (NIV)
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." —Romans 6:23 (NIV)
Jesus knew all of the choices and thoughts you would make throughout your life and He still wants to have a relationship with you! No matter what you’ve done or been through, He loves you deeply. He gave His life on the cross so you wouldn’t have to experience eternal death. He took that enormous spiritual debt upon himself because he didn’t want you to pay that price. What an amazing gift of love! God’s grace is freely given. We cannot earn it. You can receive this gift right now. Jesus is waiting with open arms.
“God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” — Romans 5:8 (NIV)
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.” —Ephesians 2:8-9 (NIV)
“I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through me.” — John 14:6 (NIV)
Confess your sins and turn away from them and towards Him. He is the only one and the only way to restore the damage done by sin. Jesus wants to exchange all your pain and brokenness and give you everything He has! His healing for your heart, a restored relationship with Him, a fresh start, peace that passes understanding and so much more because you are now His child.
“ 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 (NIV)
If you’re ready to start a new life with Jesus leading you as Lord and want to exchange your old life for a new beginning, pray this simple prayer out loud:
"Jesus, I know that I have made mistakes and I need You in my life.
I need You as my Savior. Please forgive me.
I know my way doesn’t work and that you have an amazing plan for me.
So today, I give my life to You.
I believe that You died on the cross for my sins and that You rose from the dead.
Help me to live my life for You alone.
Thank You for Your unending love, your forgiveness and your grace.
Thank you for a fresh start! Today, I start my new life as a part of Your family.
In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen."
