Commit your life to Jesus


We were created to be like Jesus. Made in God's image. Genesis 1:26

We were created to know God and to fulfil his purposes for our lives.

What are you doing with the life that God has given you?

That question changed my life. It awakened my life to God's possibilities.

To Jesus who says: " I have come in order that you might have life,life in all its fulness. "

I turned to God's Word and found its truth truly life changing as I came to know of God's love for us all. John 3:16

It explained my separatedness from God, my self-centredness, my sinfulness. Romans 3:23

It told me of a better way. A new life that I could have because of Jesus through whose life, death and resurrection God has reached down and reaches out to us in love and forgiveness, out of grace and mercy, to save us and to offer us a new way of life through faith in Jesus Christ. Ephesians 2:8

To know that new life a person must receive Jesus as Saviour and Lord accept and acknowledge Him for who he is, God's Son who died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sin and make possible the tranformation of our lives through His gift of faith given to those who come to believe in Him. A person must admit that they are a sinner in need of salvation and be willing to serve Christ with their life. A person must accept the path of discipleship and be willing to share their faith in word and deed with others that they too might be saved. 1 Corinthians 6:19b,20

God's Word is His blueprint for our lives. The Holy Spirit the counsellor and guide He gives to us to spiritually empower us in His service and spiritually equip us as His Church to live and witness to the Risen Lord. John 4:16,17

Saved from sin we are saved to serve. We are called to love one another. We are called to care for the needy. We are called to make disciples. To be a living community of the faith celebrating and advancing God's Kingdom till Christ comes again. We are called also to fight injustice and to care for God's creation and well as for the poor and the marginalised of our world. 1 John 4:7f, Matthew 28:18-20

Have you committed your life to Jesus? Romans 10:8-10 It is a decision he calls us to make. To believe is to respond to his call. To accept his truth for our lives. To be changed by His presence and His power, to come alive spiritually to God. To discover His plan and purposes for our lives.

Even as God is touching your life today will you take that step now. Read the Gospel. Pray this prayer. Share your faith. Join a local church. Live for Jesus. Do with your life what He would have you do and be. Now that's Life with a capital L, abundant life, eternal life and there is no beating it for there is no better way! Why delay? Commit your life to Jesus today.

Prayer:

Father God I accept that I am a sinner.
I acknowledge that your Son died for me upon the Cross.
I thank you that He did so out of love.
In repentance and faith I come.
Lord Jesus forgive my sin.
Put your promised Holy Spirit within
that I may be empowered and equipped to serve you.
I commit my life to you and confess you now to be
My Saviour and My Lord.
Renew my life even as I believe in you.
This I ask in the name of the Father, the Son and the
Holy Spirit.


Amen.
