YOU + JESUS

EVERYONE’S CHRISTIAN FAITH JOURNEY LOOKS DIFFERENT AND THAT’S A GOOD THING, BECAUSE YOU’RE NOT DESIGNED TO IMITATE OTHER PEOPLE. YOU’RE DESIGNED TO IMITATE CHRIST AND HAVE A UNIQUE RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, BUT IF THERE WAS TO BE A STARTING POINT, WE WOULD SAY IT BEGINS WITH YOU AND JESUS.

WE BELIEVE A FEW KEY THINGS WHEN STARTING YOUR CHRISTIAN FAITH JOURNEY—

01.

GOD LOVES YOU. NOTHING YOU COULD DO COULD STOP HIM FROM LOVING YOU.

02.

GOD GAVE US FREE WILL TO MAKE OUR OWN CHOICES. HE DIDN’T CREATE US TO ‘HAVE TO’ LOVE HIM, HE WANTED US TO CHOOSE THAT LOVE, JUST LIKE in ANY OTHER AUTHENTIC RELATIONSHIP.

03.

UNFORTUNATELY, THROUGH BAD CHOICES, WE CHOSE SIN AND SO HUMANITY BECAME ESTRANGED FROM GOD.

04.

BUT GOD KNEW WHAT WOULD TAKE PLACE AND HAD A REDEMPTION PLAN ALL ALONG, AND THIS PLAN WOULD BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN US AND GOD. THE PLAN WAS JESUS.

05.

BECAUSE GOD IS PERFECT AND A GOD OF ORDER, JESUS NEEDED TO LIVE A LIFE THAT WOULD BE FREE FROM SIN, AND THATS EXACTLY WHAT HE DID. HE LIVED A LIFE THAT WOULD BRING THE REST OF US BACK IN RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD THROUGH HIS SACRIFICE ON THE CROSS.

06.

AND THROUGH HIS BLOOD THAT WAS SHED ON THE CROSS, THERE WAS A ‘ONCE AND FOR ALL’ SACRIFICE. WE NO LONGER HAD TO PAY FOR THE DEPT OF SIN. HE PAID THAT PRICE FOR US ALL.

07.

SO NOW, BY SIMPLY acknowledging JESUS AS OUR SAVIOUR AND OUR LORD AND ASKING FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF OUR SINS, WE ARE NO LONGER ESTRANGED FROM GOD, BUT WE ARE CHILDREN OF GOD. OUR SPIRIT COMES ALIVE AND WE ARE SET FREE FROM THE BONDAGE OF SIN. AMEN.

A FEW FINAL THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW…

GOD IS FOR YOU, NOT AGAINST YOU.

HE HAS THE BEST FOR YOU, BECAUSE HE CREATED YOU AND LOVES YOU.

TRUST HIM, EMBRACE THE INCREDIBLE JOURNEY OF FAITH THAT HE HAS MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU.

IF YOU DON’T HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS AND YOU WOULD LIKE ONE, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PRAY THIS SIMPLE PRAYER…

“DEAR JESUS, I THANK YOU, FOR WHAT YOU DID FOR ME ON THE CROSS.

I ASK YOU TO FORGIVE ME OF MY SINS. WASH ME CLEAN, MAKE ME NEW.

I ASK YOU TO COME INTO MY LIFE. BE MY LORD AND MY SAVIOUR.

GUIDE ME, SPEAK TO ME, WALK WITH ME.

IN JESUS NAME,

AMEN.”

IF YOU PRAYED THIS PRAYER, WE WOULD LOVE TO CONNECT WITH YOU AND HELP YOU IN ANY WAY WE CAN. WE WOULD ALSO LOVE TO GET YOU CONNECTED TO A LOCAL CHURCH. THERE ARE SO MANY AMAZING CHURCH FAMILIES ALL OVER THE WORLD THAT CAN ENCOURAGE YOU AND SUPPORT YOU ON YOUR JOURNEY!!
