“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
God said this because he made you and wants to bless you. He knows you inside and out and now wants you to have a personal relationship with Him through Jesus Christ. Jesus said, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. This means that just as we were born naturally we need to have a spiritual rebirth. By making a personal commitment to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and committing to follow Him, we experience spiritual rebirth. Jesus also said that He stands at the door of our hearts asking to come in. We have to make a decision to invite Him in, it is not automatic. If you have never consciously prayed and put your trust in Him asking Him to come into your life, you can do so today by praying this simple prayer:
Father, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and personal Saviour. I thank you Jesus that you died on the cross for me that i might become a child of God. I ask you to come into my life and cleanse me from my sin. I thank you Lord that I can be born again and that my life can be new. Amen
If you prayed this prayer, welcome to the kingdom of God! You have just made THE BEST decision of your life! Be sure to get plugged into your local church and see how God begins to work in your life! Exciting times lay ahead for you!
