The Bible tells us that God created all human beings for relationship; with Him and with each other. He made us to relate to Him as a loving Heavenly Father. However, we are confronted with the reality that we have all turned our backs on God and are guilty of failing to live as he would want us to.
The Bible calls this failure sin and our sin has broken our relationship with God.
2000 years ago God sent his only son Jesus, into the world to allow us the opportunity to connect in relationship with Him and break down the barrier of sin that keeps us from Him.
Jesus died on the cross to pay for our sins. We can have a personal relationship with God by accepting this gift that God has given us. We can know Jesus and God the Father personally, here’s how:
- Admit that you are a sinner. The Bible tells us in Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned; all fall short of God’s glorious standard” (NLT).
- Believe that Jesus is your Lord and Saviour. The Bible tells us in 2 Peter 2:20 “They were made free from the evil in the world by knowing our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ” (NCV).
- Confess your need to be saved. The Bible says in Romans 10:9 “For if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (NLT).
- Do it now… by praying this simple prayer:
God, I admit that I am a sinner who has hurt you and other people. I believe that you are God who came to save me. I confess that I need you in my life. I invite you into my life as my Lord, Saviour and Friend. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
If you have sincerely prayed that prayer, then congratulations! You are now a part of God’s wonderful kingdom.
