To live a victorious life under God’s protection (the God of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ), a recipient of His love and peace as well as His numerous promises to His children found in the Word of God (Bible) you must be born again or saved. If you used to serve God through Christ at one time but are now backslidden it is time to return and rededicate your life to the LORD time waits for no one and Jesus is coming soon.
Accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour requires a confession and belief in your heart that He is indeed Lord and Saviour of the World sent by God (Romans 10:9-10/John 3:16) and that He died and rose again the third day to deliver you from sin and reconcile you with God your creator.
A child of God is guaranteed eternal life with God and in the here and now they are guaranteed abundant life; a life supernaturally controlled by God the Father through Christ Jesus as they stay committed in fellowship with God through Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit. The old nature conforming to the evil world system and self is progressively overcome as one lives in obedience to God according to His commands in the bible.
God is faithful to bring to pass his promises and answer the prayers of His children.
Jesus said “The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.”(John 10:10 NLT)
He also said “21 Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them…23 Jesus replied, “All who love me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them” (John 14:21,23)
The Apostle Paul encouraged believers in Philippi (an encouragement for you today)
“6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.8 And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.” (Phil. 4:6-8 NLT)
It is not too late to have a relationship with God, it is first and foremost about making a decision to “try” Him if you have tried everything else and still feel a void in your life and you still do not feel peace or fulfilled. God gives a peace that this world cannot give.
Jesus said “I am leaving you with a gift–peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.” (John 14:27 NLT)
Sometimes without God we think we are at peace because we are not experiencing any affliction or difficulties, but I speak from experience when I say that it is just an illusion! There is no peace than the one we receive from becoming children of God because it is the real deal.
Some people have left churches and given up on God altogether because someone in church disappointed them. I have a message for you today: Let no one rob you off what God has predestined for you even before the foundations of the world! Are they your maker? Do they determine your destiny? Do not look to man and do not allow man to stand between you and God through Christ. God is calling you back today: Return, brother, return sister into a personal relationship with the LORD! There are truly Godly people in the church and my prayer is that He will lead them to you and you to them. May He find you a church where you can start trusting again. Give your fellow Christian a chance, be patient, determine to love all despite flaws as you would like to be loved and your Heavenly Father loves you.
Be quick to forgive and quick to love with the Lord of God and remember the Christian walk is a journey with its ups and downs for others as for you. But God promises to be with us all the way, for He is a faithful Father who loves His children with an everlasting love.
I have pasted a prayer of salvation below. Please take a stock of your life and consider carefully that you are not reading this in vain, the LORD God who created you loves you and desires a relationship with you. He is calling you to dedicate your life to him through salvation offered by Christ Jesus or if you used to consider yourself a Christian but are no longer living as one, God is saying it is time to return, His hands are wide open also pray this prayer as one rededicating one’s life or starting all over again, this time for good.
Please pray this prayer of Salvation below and following that trust God with your life, commit to reading the Bible and pray for God to lead you to the right church (please contact me if you would like me to recommend any to you) God Bless Deborah Esther X
PLEASE PRAY: SALVATION PRAYER
Dear God in heaven, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I acknowledge to You that I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins and the life that I have lived; I need your forgiveness.
I believe that your only begotten Son Jesus Christ shed His precious blood on the cross at Calvary and died for my sins, and I am now willing to turn from my sin.
You said in Your Holy Word, Romans 10:9 that if we confess the Lord our God and believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved.
Right now I confess Jesus as the Lord of my soul. With my heart, I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. This very moment I accept Jesus Christ as my own personal Savior and according to His Word, right now I am saved.
Thank you Jesus for your unlimited grace which has saved me from my sins. I thank you Jesus that your grace never leads to license, but rather it always leads to repentance. Therefore Lord Jesus transform my life so that I may bring glory and honor to you alone and not to myself.
Thank you Jesus for dying for me and giving me eternal life. AMEN.
