Life Can Have True Meaning
Recognize that God loves you and has a plan for your life.
His love includes you.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.” -John 3:16
He has new life for you.
“I have come that they might have life, and have it to the fullest.” -John 10:10
Recognize that sin separates you from God and others.
SIN is walking our own way in rebellion against God’s will. When we walk away from God, we walk away from life.
Everyone has sinned.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
Sin brings death.
“For the wages of sin is death…” -Romans 6:23
As sinners we futilely try to find life’s true meaning in the wrong ways and places.
Our own efforts cannot save us.
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith, and this not from yourselves – it is the gift of God, not by works, so that no one can boast.” -Ephesians 2:8-9
Recognize that Jesus Christ died and rose again for our sins.
He died in our place.
“But God demonstrates His love to us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” -Romans 5:8
Jesus Christ is the way to new life.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” -2 Corinthians 5:17
He gives inner peace.
“We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
He gives freedom.
“So as the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”
He gives eternal life.
“But the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.”
You must repent and ask God for forgiveness.
To acknowledge you sins
To be sorry for your sins
To confess your sins
To be willing to forsake your sins
To have your life changed by Christ
Forgiveness is promised.
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
-1 John 1:9
Place your trust in Christ and receive Him as your Savior.
Christ is ready.
“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in.” -Revelation 3:20
Receive Him now.
Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God.
What to pray.
Lord Jesus, I want to have life. I know that I have sinned. I need your forgiveness and pardon. I believe that You died and rose again for my sins. I now accept You as my personal Savior. I will forsake my sinful life. I know that Your grace and power will enable me to live for You. Thank You, Jesus, for saving me, and for giving me a new life.
For help in living a meaningful life in Christ:
Be assured of Christ’s forgiveness.
Read your Bible and pray daily.
