"This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life."

JOHN 3:16 MSG

A new Beginning

To be made whole, or to be saved is to submit to God and his plan and purpose for our lives. It is a turning from our old ways and turning to Jesus, to ask him for forgiveness from our sins and to give us new life in him!

Romans 10:9 says that “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”

And guess what? Salvation is God’s free gift to us! 

It is in irrevocable acceptance into the family of god and it is an empowerment to live life wholly and fully with the purpose fo reflecting God to those around us.

If you are not sure whether you are right with God or you know in fact that you need Jesus in your life, you can follow Him right now by praying a prayer of surrender to Jesus.

 

“Jesus, I need you. Thank you for dying on the cross, thank you for paying for what I did. I receive your forgiveness, forgive me of my sins and be the Lord of my life. Be number one. With all of my heart, the best way I know how, I am going to live for you. I now know who I am! I am saved. I am redeemed. I am a child of God.

In Jesus Name, Amen.”

Congratulations!!! To pray these words with a surrendered heart to Jesus is the beginning of the most important journey you will ever embark on: the journey to follow Jesus.
