Relationship With God
No matter how good a life we try to live, we still fall miserably short of being good enough. That is because we are all sinners. We all fall short of God's desire for us to be holy. The Bible says, "No one is good, not even one" (Romans 3:10 NLT). This is because we cannot become who we are supposed to be without Jesus Christ.
The Bible tells us that God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while were still sinners (Romans 5:8 NLT). This is the Good News, that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die in our place when we least deserved it.
The Bible tells us to repent and be converted (Acts 3:19 NKJV). The word repent means to change our direction in life. Instead of running from God, we can run toward Him.
Becoming a Christian is not merely believing some creed or going to church on Sunday. It is having Christ Himself take residence in your life and heart. Jesus said, "Behold, I stand at the door (of your life) and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in . . ." (Revelation 3:20 NKJV).
To put your faith in action, be sure to spend time with God by reading your Bible, praying, going to church, and telling others about Christ. Please click on the "Praise and Prayer Request" link and let us know about this important decision in your life!
