PRAISING LOVING HELPING
Do you want to live the life you are meant to live?
 
  • Believe God made me to love me and to live for His purposes.                                          

          Everything got started in God and finds its purpose in Him." Colossians 1:16
 
  • Admit I’ve lived for myself, then accept God’s free forgiveness which was paid for by Jesus.

                 "We’re all like sheep who’ve wandered off and gotten lost. We’ve all done our own thing, gone our own way. But God has piled all our sins, everything we’ve done wrong, on him (Jesus)." Isaiah 53:6

  •  Switch to living for God’s purposes in my life.

          "Give yourselves to God...and surrender your whole being to him to be used for righteous purposes." Romans 6:13

  • Express my desire for Jesus to be the Lord (leader) of my life.

          You will be saved if you honestly say, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and if you believe with all your heart that God raised him from death."   Romans 10:9

          "It makes no difference who you are or where you’re from- if you want God and are ready to do as he says, the door is open."   Acts 10:35

A simple prayer you can pray:
         
"Dear God, I don’t understand it all yet, but I believe you love me and made me for your purposes. I’m sorry that I’ve lived for myself instead of for you, and I ask for your forgiveness. Thank you for sending Jesus to pay for my sins. I want Jesus to be the Lord of my life. Please help me to learn to love you and trust you and live for your purposes. Amen."
