Do you know where you stand with God?
If you have never made Jesus the Lord of your life, then you are separated from God through sin. God loves you so much He gave His only begotten Son for you. You are the reason He sent Jesus to the cross. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.” Second Corinthians 5:21 says God made Jesus, who knew no sin, to be sin for us. Jesus is the spotless Son of God. He knew no sin, but God made Him to be sin for us. Sin was the reason Jesus came to earth. He died on Calvary’s Cross and went to hell for one reason: to pay the price for your and my sin. Once that price was paid, Jesus was raised from the dead, triumphant over satan, and the sin problem was forever taken care of.
God is not holding your sin against you. He sent Jesus to the cross as your substitute, He paid the sin debt. He became sin for you so you could become His righteousness. Now you can receive the credit for what He did in your place (Isaiah 53:3-5).
The price has been paid, but it’s not automatic. You must choose to accept what He did for you and receive Him as your personal Savior and LORD. If you have never done so, choose Him now. Repent of your sin (turn totally from it) and pray this prayer. When you do, the power of God will make you a new creation in Christ Jesus.
“Heavenly Father, in the Name of Jesus, I present myself to You. I pray and ask Jesus to be LORD over my life. I believe it in my heart, so I say with my mouth that Jesus has been raised from the dead. This moment I make Him The LORD over my life. Jesus, come into my heart. I believe this moment that I am saved. I say it now: I am reborn. I am a Christian. I am a child of the Almighty God!. Thank you, Jesus.”
