Seeking Jesus?

There are four things that God wants you to know. They are called the Four Spiritual Truths and are simple, yet they can make an impact in your life.

 

  1. God loves you, and has a wonderful plan for you. The truth is, God loves you that's why he made you. He created you in a way that suits your purpose in this life, and that's not all. He has a wonderful plan for you. "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to give you a hope and a future." (Jeremiah 29:11 New International Version)
  2. Sin has caused us to be separated from God. The first man Adam, sinned against God in the Garden of Eden and  caused us to be separated from God. “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23 NIV). Nobody is perfect, because we are all born sinners out of what we have inherited from our forefather, Adam. That's why people find it hard to believe this spiritual truth because of the bad experiences they encounter, and they think God hates them, but the truth is, humanity is blinded by hatred and anger caused by their own selfish ways. Sin separated us from the fellowship of God offers because we are ashamed and guilty of all the foolish things we have been doing.
  3. God made a way for us to be reconciled with him. The truth is, "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." (John 3:16 NIV) From a King, to a slave he passed through time and space to be a sacrifice for your sins and my sins, so we can be saved from eternal damnation. What a wonderful plan. God didn't spare his one and only Son. He gave his best for us. The world has fallen short of God's glory, but thank God because he did it out of his love for us.
  4. Now you know these three spiritual truths, you can decide for yourself if you want to surrender your life to Jesus. It was written, "whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." Jesus came into this world both human and God to give us hope and a good future. You are missing God's blessings and favor in your life because of sin. "The thief comes only to steal, and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life and have it to the full." (John 10:10 NIV) However, if you love him, you will do whatever he tells you. One way is Jesus Christ. He is the only way to the Father. He is the way, the truth and the life.

 

INVITATION  TO JOIN JESUS

 

Jesus is knocking at the door. If you welcome him, he will never turn away from you. He died because of you. To give you a life that is abundant and full. If you decide for yourself to surrender your heart to him, say this prayer as an act of true surrender. There is no magic in this prayer, but "if you confess 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)

 

To receive Jesus, speak out loud the following prayer believing with all your heart:


 

Dear Jesus, I come to you this time, as I open my heart to you. I want you in my life. I want you to be my Lord and Saviour. I believe with all my heart that you died on that cross for me, and that you are raised from the dead because you love me. And you want me to experience abundant life. I confess you are my Lord. You are my Master. Thank you for dying on that cross. Thank you for choosing me, and loving me as I am. Thank you for writing my name in the Book of Life. Help me to change, and from this day forwards, You will be my Lord. This I ask in your name, Amen.

Because the will of God is the glory of heven, the doing of it is the blessedness of heaven. As the will is dne, the Kingdom of Heaven comes into the heart...Andrew Murray
