Hello my friends,
I have a victorious message for you today.
Jesus Christ was with God the Father, before the world was created. He became human and lived among humanity, as Jesus of Nazareth. He came to show us what God the Father is like. He lived a sinless life, showing us how to live, and He died upon a cross to pay for our sins. God raised Him from the dead.
Jesus is the source of eternal life. Jesus wants to be the doorway to new life for you. In the Bible. He was called the "Lamb of God" (John 1:29). In the Old Testament, sacrifices were made for the sins of the people. Jesus became the sacrificial lamb Who was offered for your sin.
Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" (John 14:6).
He is waiting for you now.
Admit to God that you are a sinner. Repent, turning away from your sin. (See Acts 3:19; Romans 3:23; 6:23.)
By faith, receive Jesus Christ as God's Son, and accept Jesus' gift of forgiveness from sin. He took the penalty for your sin, by dying on the cross. (See Romans 6:23; John 3:16.)
Confess your faith in Jesus Christ, as Savior and Lord. (See Romans 10:9-10,13; 1 John 1:9.)
You may pray a prayer like this as ask God to save you: "Dear God, I know that You love me. I confess my sin and need of salvation. I turn away from my sin, and place my faith in Jesus as my Savior and Lord. In Jesus' name I pray, amen."
After you have received Jesus Christ into your life, tell a pastor or another Christian about your decision. Show others your faith in Christ, by asking for baptism in your local church, as a public expression of your faith.
Also, remember that the Christian Fellowship Devotionals are a supplement to your church growth. We encourage each of you to be involved in a local church. If you need assistance in locating a Bible-believing church, e-mail us, and we will do our best to give you some direction.
God bless you my friends.
Rob - I want my life to just to be for the glory of God in Christ Jesus.
