John 3:16 (NIV)Source: -Bible John 3:16
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Many know the story of John 3:16 how Jesus Christ, died on the cross for mankind’s sin’s I even know the story as well, but I was also shown by an older gentlemen that God introduced into my life. I say, this because one bible study occasion this older man asked me the question “Got God?” the question was straight to the point and I of course answered Yes, I got God, but then the older gentleman asked me, did I have and know God on a daily personal level in a relationship aspect!
I couldn’t answer yes, at this point because I knew deep down he would see through my lie so I answered no, I do not know Jesus Christ on a personal level in a relationship aspect and this older man asked me if I would like too!
I of course answered I did but my life was too messed up for God to want a relationship with me, 😞 The older Gentleman spent the next hour personally investing uninterrupted time with me and explained to me how God has always wanted to lavish His love upon me daily. All I had to do was surrender like Jesus surrendered. I became confused and said how is killing myself achieving this aspect in my life?
The Older man explained that I didn’t need to physically come to death but I needed to bring to death my sinful ways and let go of the sinful aspect of me on a daily basis. Meaning my sinful lifestyle.
If this is how you feel, where you want a relationship with Jesus Christ, or want to renew your relationship with God, then you didn’t land on this page by mistake it was the Holy Spirit, that lead you here! So, I can pray with you meaning I write the prayer and you read it out loud to Jesus, I want you to know it is not easy to live for God and it will be the hardest aspect of life that you will ever embark on but God say’s He will be with you every step of the way. I encourage any reader of this page to pour your heart out to Jesus with no doubt for God will hear your prayer. God yearns to have a relationship with you!!!
Abba (Father) I come before you as a sinner but, seek forgiveness because I heard and believe your Son, Jesus Christ, died on the cross for my sin’s. Lord it wouldn’t be right to ask for forgiveness and not extend that gift unto others that have offended or hurt me as well. So, I forgive them or I cannot seek your forgiveness according to Matthew 6:15 states so.
Abba, I admit (Confess Your Sins Out Loud To Jehovah right now) and forgive others and yourself… (Pause for a moment as you confess your sins) Abba, I don’t want to run from you anymore but instead embrace every aspect of you at this very moment and the rest of my life, Abba, (Father) I lay down my sinful lifestyle at the foot of the cross and die to myself meaning my sinful ways of life ( I lay to rest ) my sinful ways. Oh Lord, search me and bring forth any offensive sinful way in me to light so I can become a vessel of your Holy Word (Scripture) as I join your mighty and victorious army to bring forth the seed of the Holy Spirit the very workings of the Holy Spirit to the dying nations of this world Amen.
