Even though Jesus created the universe and everything in it, he does not force anyone to follow him. We are given the freedom to accept or reject Jesus.
To experience wholeness and new life, to be saved from sin, we must accept Jesus.
John 3:16 says “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.”
God wants to live in personal relationship with you forever. He wants to give you a full life. He wants to partner with you to bring healing to the world and those around you.
God has a unique purpose for your life. He wants you to be a part of his family through the free gift of salvation. It is up to you to accept Jesus, to receive salvation, and follow him.
You don’t need to be a member of our church. You don’t need to be a part of a certain group. You don’t need to be a part of a certain political party.
Anyone can follow Jesus at any time. There is nothing that can disqualify you from choosing to follow Jesus. Your failures, your past shortcomings, your brokenness and hurt, anything you’ve done or experienced cannot disqualify you from making a decision to follow Jesus.
If you’re not sure if you’re right with God or if you know that you need Jesus in your life, you can choose to follow him right now through praying this prayer:
Dear Heavenly Father, I want to become a follower of Jesus. I receive Jesus into my life. I believe he was God and that he came to pay the price for my sin when he died on the cross. Please forgive me for living life my own way. I turn away from that life and I turn toward you. As best I know how and with your help, I want to live for you from this day forward. Amen.
Congratulations! By praying this prayer, receiving Jesus and believing what he came to do, you can now be certain that you are a part of God’s family. Right now, all of heaven is throwing a huge party to celebrate your decision!
