Here we are at the end of the week after discussing Christianity and salvation and there seems to be no more appropriate ending to this time than to ask you, would you like to become a Christian? Saying yes doesn't requiring understanding everything, owning a Bible or making up your mind that you can be "good" from now on. It just means you have decided that there is a God and you want a relationship with him; and that you are accepting the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as the truth. The learning and growing and messing up and learning some more will start from here.
You don't have to have a church in mind or know exactly what you believe other than you believe that Jesus loves you and he died to save you. Do you believe that you need to be restored to a relationship with God? Join us...
Dear God, I recognize that just on my own, I cannot do enough good to be good enough. I want to have a relationship with you so that I can discover what my purpose is in life and learn to live with joy and peace. I know that I need Jesus Christ to enter into my life so that I can have a teacher as well as a savior. I accept his sacrifice for my sins and I believe that by accepting Christ, my sins are gone and you will be with me throughout my life and one day, you will welcome me into heaven. I thank you for your love and for making a way for me to have a relationship with you. I ask you to guide me and show me every day how to live for you and I will do my best to do it. As of this moment, I am a Christian...A Believer...A Christ Follower. Thank you Lord, In Jesus Name; Amen.
I hope you have taken a moment to invite Christ to be Lord over your life. I urge you to find friends and a church to be with you in your journey and to support and love you. If you don't know where to start, start here. There is a whole blog family ready to welcome you and help you find the next step. Welcome home.
