Hello, Let me tell you that all changes that happened to me were because of God’s only son Jesus. None of these changes were done because of my own strength or power. Jesus is the one who changes lives. One day as a young man I invited Jesus in my heart and decided to live my life for Him. My life was never the same. I immediately started to enjoy Abundant Living as soon as I claimed Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I found peace and hope and love. I invite you to come along with me and enjoy Abundant Living.
If you are not experiencing Abundant Living, it is my prayer that you will experience Abundant Living today! Remember only Jesus can give you Abundant Living. You know the Bible says that you can have Everlasting Life when you believe in Jesus. Listen to this good news… Jhn 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."
Along with this tremendously Good News Jesus says that He has come that you might have Life and have it more Abundantly. Jhn 10:10 Jesus says… “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly."
When you decide that you are tired of the way your life is going and you need a new beginning, know that Jesus offers you Abundant Living. He offers you Life more Abundantly. Jesus says in the Book of John Chapter 10 verse 15 “As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.
Jesus laid down His life when He was crucified on the cross. He was placed in the tomb and 3 days later He arose from the dead. He is alive and all the promises of God are true.
Are you ready to have Life Everlasting? Are you ready for Abundant Living? Are you ready to become a Christian? Listen to what I am about to say carefully.
Claiming Jesus as your Lord is as simple as ABC.
A. Admit Admit that you are a sinner. Repent, turning away from your sin. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
B. Believe Believe that Jesus is God’s Son and accept God’s gift of forgiveness from sin. While we were sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
C. Confess Confess your faith in Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord. If you will 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
Say this simple prayer: ''Dear God, I am sorry for my sins. Please forgive me. Jesus I believe that you are God's Son and are Lord. I believe you died on the cross for my sins and was raised from the dead. Today, I invite you to come into my life to be my Lord and Savior. Thank You for loving me and saving me from my sins. In your Name Jesus I pray, Amen''
If you prayed this prayer, The Bible says that “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Romans 10:13
The Bible gives you the assurance that you are saved if you said this prayer with sincerity.
"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast." Ephesians 2:8.9
We are born into God’s family through the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit who indwells every believer. This is called the new birth or regeneration.
To grow in this new relationship with Christ here are a few important suggestions…
1. Read your Bible everyday to know Christ better.
2. Talk to God in prayer every day.
3. Tell others about Christ.
4. Worship, fellowship, and serve with other Christians in a church where Christ is preached.
5. As Christ's representative in a needy world, demonstrate your new life by your love and concern for others.
