God wants to have a personal relationship with you.
God wants you to know that he's with you. You could find him in the way for you to know him. You can experience peace and abundant life when you know him. The bible states that we can have peace with God and the Savior of our faith, Jesus Christ. It also says that Jesus said that they may have life and they may have it more abundant.
According to another powerful verse from the bible, whoever believes in the resurrection of Jesus should not die but have eternal life. The problem is that there is a big gap between us from God and from each other. It is called sin. Sin is an inheritable condition. Logic tells you that this is true of all human beings. The world is full of sin, and we feel that it separations us from one another.
A relationship with God is not always easy to reestablish. You are separated from him because you did not follow the correct rules. The Bible says that all sinned and fall short of the glory of God. The gap of separation between God and you was bridged by the love of The Cross God. The penalty for your sins was paid when Jesus Christ died and came back to life. The Bible says that the sins of our ancestors were carried in his own body when he died on the cross.
What is the best way to bridge the gap?
The good news is that God did everything he needed to do to close the gap. He is asking you to cross that bridge into his family. The world was created before he had a plan. It was accomplished by Jesus, life, death, and resurrection. The man is the bridge. The separation between you and God is repaired when you become a member of Christ's church. He's personally inviting you to do that.
The bible says that as many received Him, he gave them the right to become children of God. There is more good news. You can ask for the help of God to repair other relationships as well. He is a great bridge builder.
To begin a personal relationship with God and to experience his peace, you first need to acknowledge your need of forgiveness. To be honest you should say, "I have done wrong things and I need God's forgiveness".
Remove the burden of your sins. Go the other way if that's what you have to do. God wants it that way.
Confess that Jesus was raised to life by God and that he is Lord. Jesus can give you control of your life. That's how you make him a good man. A great way to do that is with a prayer. "I stand at the door and knock," Jesus is saying to you. If someone opens the door, I'll come in, I will say so in my voice. The Bible states that whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
There is a prayer to be prayed. Before praying out loud from your heart, read it first.
I know I'm a sinner, but please let me know. I need someone to forgive me. I believe you were killed for my sins. I would like to turn my life around. I would like to have you come into my heart so that you can make me new. I want to follow You as my Lord and Savior. Amen, in the name of Jesus.
Let us know that you prayed. All of us are a part of the same family. We would like to celebrate with you.
