Have you ever felt that something is missing in your life? Maybe you’ve been looking for a relationship to fill some kind of void inside of you… but somehow, no relationship ever seems to fill that hole. You’ve been searching for someone who’s real and something’s that right, but you just can’t find the missing pieces.
Well, there’s a relationship that you’re created to have. It’s found in the only book God ever wrote, where you can discover the relationship you’re missing. It says, “All things were created by Him and for Him.” (Colossians 1:16) See, you were created by God and for God – and you won’t be complete inside until you belong to Him. You see… the one relationship you can’t do without… is a personal relationship with the One who created you.
You don’t have this relationship because you’ve been trying to run your own life – You were created for Him, but you live for yourself. The Bible says there is a problem. Your sins have cut you off from God, preventing you from having a relationship with the One you were made for… because SIN (or running your life your own way) has created a gap between you and your Creator. You’ve taken a life that was supposed to be lived for God, and you’ve spent it on yourself. There’s a death penalty for hijacking your life. It’s separation from God – now and forever.
The Bible says… there’s no amount of good things you can do to get to God. Your only hope is if God comes to you. The good news is…He has. You can have a relationship with God because of what Jesus did. God’s book says, “Christ died for your sins to bring you to God.” (1st Corinthians 15:3) You did the SINNING, but Jesus did the DYING – on His cross. Because He loves you that much, Jesus paid the death penalty for every wrong thing you’ve ever done and ever will do. Then He rose from the dead three days after He died.
What you do with Jesus is the most important decision you will ever make. Ultimately, this is a relationship you must choose. God did His part when He gave His Son to die for you. Now it’s your move. You need to turn away from a life of “my way” and turn to God in total trust.
The Bible says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His Only Son so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:16) Believing in Jesus is like a drowning person grabbing for a lifeguard and saying, “God, I’m pinning all my hopes of forgiveness and rescue on You.” When have you done that with Jesus?
This relationship can be yours here and now… and forever. You can belong to God from today on if you will tell Him with all your heart…
“Lord, I’m sorry for running my own life. I’ve been living for me. As of today, I resign! I believe your Son, Jesus Christ, paid my death penalty when He died on the cross. I’m turning from a life of “my way” and I’m putting all my trust in Jesus to give me a relationship with You and to get me to heaven. Lord, from today on, I’m Yours.”
