"Ever wonder… What on Earth am I Here For? God planned this moment in your life. It is no accident that you are reading this right now. To know why you were placed on this planet you must begin with God. You were born by his purpose and for his purpose. You won't discover your life's meaning by looking within yourself. You did not create yourself, so there is no way you can tell yourself what you were created for."†
Apostle Paul said: It's in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone. Ephesians 1:11 God has a purpose for your life and Jesus is a central part of that plan.
Who is Jesus? That's been the question of the ages. God, Man, Savior, Lord all describe him but who he is to you is the most important question you will ever answer in your life. We believe Jesus is all of those. The miracles Jesus performed, his death on the cross, his resurrection, his ascent to heaven--all point to the fact that he was no ordinary leader.
Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father but by me." John 14:6
Jesus is God and he loves you and created you to know him personally. He said, "I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life." John 6:47
Knowing Jesus is as easy as ABC
Admit My Needs: I am powerless over my troubles and my problems have become unmanageable for me. Romans 7:8
Believe the Lord is the Answer: I believe Jesus is my Savior who died on the cross for all of my burdens, sins and unmanageable problems. Romans 5:8
Call on Him for Help: I invite Him to come into my life as my Lord and Savior. Revelation 3:20
Here is a suggested prayer…
Lord Jesus, I want to know you personally. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life to you and ask you to come in as my Savior and Lord. Take control of my life. Thank you for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Take over my troubles and unmanageable problems. Make me the kind of person you want me to be.
If this prayer expresses the desire of your heart, pray it right now and Jesus Christ will come into your life just as he has promised. Once you invite Christ into your life, he promises to never leave you.
Hebrews 13:5 "God has said, ‘Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.'"
