Do you need your story changed – do you want to live a life with purpose ?

Living a normal everyday life or surfing on the world tour – everyone has a story!! The thing is, we also have a choice!! Do I live with or without Jesus??

Its easy to make the choice to journey with Jesus, but to live it out, well, this is where it becomes a life changing journey!! The awesome thing about Jesus is, you are accepted & loved first, no matter what you have done in your life..

So, how do I start this journey with Jesus?? Follow the tabs & see what happens at the other end!! One thing is for sure – by following Jesus, your story will take on a whole new purpose, it’s life changing!!!

Why...
In the Bible – in the book of Romans (3:23), it says: “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” We have all sinned, We have all done things that are displeasing to God. There is no one who can say they have never sinned (other than Jesus).

This is why we need Jesus – God can not tolerate sin, Jesus came to earth, lived a sinless life, was crucified on the cross and rose from the dead after 3 days. God did this through His son to show His great love for us, and reconcile us to himself by making Jesus a sin offering for all mankind.

So we have a choice – whether stay living our lives the way they are!! or decide to make changes!!

Accepting...
It’s a Gift – accepting Jesus is a gift from God..
Romans 6:23 “But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Jesus Christ died for us! Jesus’ death paid for the price of our sins. Jesus’ resurrection proves that God accepted Jesus’ death as the payment for our sins.

Romans 10:9 “That if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”

Because of Jesus’ death on our behalf, all we have to do is believe in Him, trusting His death as the payment for our sins – and we will be saved!

Romans 10:13 “For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

Jesus died to pay the penalty for our sins and rescue us from eternal death. Salvation, the forgiveness of sins, is available to anyone who will trust in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

If this is you, pray this prayer from your heart today.

God,
I want to change my story, I want to live a life with purpose. I understand that I can’t do it on my own. I am sorry and want to change.
Thanks you for Jesus. Thank you that he lived and died for me and rose again.
Please forgive me and help me to live a life with purpose and direction, with your help.
Amen.

Romans 5:1 “Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Through Jesus Christ we can have a relationship of peace with God.

Romans 8:1 “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”

Because of Jesus’ death on our behalf, we will never be condemned for our sins. Finally, we have this precious promise of God.

Romans 8:38-39 “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
