God can give your life meaning...actually only He can give true meaning, real peace, unspeakable Joy and a reason to live.
Recognize that.....GOD LOVES YOU and Has a Plan for Your Life~You have worth!
that.....Everyone has SINNED and SIN SEPARATES YOU from GOD
SIN is man
walking in his own way in rebellion against God's will.
When we walk away from God, we walk away from life.
For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
As humans we are always trying to find life's meaning in the wrong ways and places.
There is a way that seems right to man, but it leads to death. (Pro. 14:12)
efforts can't save us
Galatians 6 :14 May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
JESUS DIED AND ROSE
AGAIN FOR OUR SINS
He DIED in
But God demonstrates His own love for us in this:
While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Rom. 5:8)
JESUS is the
WAY to New Life.
If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation;
the old has gone, the new has come!" 2 Cor. 5:17)
We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ Rom. 5:1)
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. (John 8:36)
...but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Rom. 6:23)
JOY!! "In Your presence is fullness of JOY!" Psalm 16:11
ASK GOD for
SINS TO GOD (Talk to Him about it)
He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses
and renounces them finds MERCY. (Pro. 28:13
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins
and purify us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9)
TRUST in Jesus and Receive HIM as Your SAVIOR.
Here I am! I stand at the door and knock, if anyone hears my voice
and opens the door. I will go in... (Rev. 3:20)
Receive HIM NOW.
Yet to all who receive Him, to those who believed in His name
He gave them the right to become children of God.
The Bible says that "we can come boldly to the throne of the Lord, and obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:14) Let's do that now!
Ok, now let's
start this relationship off right with the Lord!! Let's talk to Him! Simply,
Lord Jesus, I want to have a life with meaning. I want to leave the darkness behind
and have Your Light within me. I confess that I have sinned and I ask Your forgiveness. I believe that You died for me and I accept You as my Savior.
I will turn away from a life of darkness and sin and now follow You.
It is Your grace and power that will enable me to live for You.
Thank-You, Jesus, for saving me, and for giving me a new life in Your Light.
That's not the end though! You need to find that Bible that is somewhere in your house....is it understandable? If not go get one you can read....(I use the NEW King James Version) when you do that... read it! underline it... Now ask the Lord to lead you to the church He wants you to worship Him at. Then get Baptized. Check out the ChristianGoth.com Directory page at the bottom for some recommended churches. Talk to Him everyday, all the time! Start out by praising Him for the great thing He has done in you & go on from there....He loves and adores you, stay close ~ He always wants to hear from you!
In the past you were full of
darkness, but now you are full of light in the Lord. So live like children who belong to
the light. Light brings every kind of goodness, right living, and truth. Try to learn what
pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the things done in the darkness, which are not
worth anything. But try to expose them.
"For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:11-13
