Whether you know it or not, God loves you exactly the way that you are. It doesn’t matter who you are, what you’ve done, or where you’ve been. He loves you and desires to have a personal relationship with you. That’s right, the Creator of the universe knows every intimate detail about you and still, He loves you. And He wants you to know and love Him.
Let’s face it. We all mess up now and then and none of us are perfect. Religion says that if we work hard enough and be good enough, we’ll be acceptable to God. But it doesn’t work that way. None of us can be good enough to measure up. The great news, however, is that God knows that and even still, He loves us!
That’s why Jesus came. God knew we couldn’t do it ourselves, so he sent His only Son, Jesus, to do it for us. Jesus paid the penalty for our sin, once and for all, so that we don’t have to. All we have to do is accept His gift.
Don’t come to Jesus saying you’ll try harder or you’ll be good from now on. Just come exactly as you are … that’s the way that He loves you anyway!
Would you allow us to introduce Him to you now? He’s right there beside you as you read this page. He wants to give you the gift of being reconciled to God. He wants to have a personal, intimate relationship with you. He wants to give you the gift of peace and eternal life. But He won’t force it on you. He would never violate you like that. He’s just waiting there for you to invite Him into your life. Say this prayer with all your heart and mean it.
Dear Jesus, I know I have messed up. I know I need help. Please come into my life and be that help. I know and confess that Jesus died on the cross for me. I choose this day to accept that and ask you to come into my life and make me have purpose again. In Jesus Name, Amen!
If you said this prayer for the first time or as a re-dedication please contact us and let us help you with your next steps. We are here to help, may God bless you as you find Jesus and the life He has for you.
Next steps would be to find you a Church that preaches and teaches The Word of God, and get into a discipleship program and begin to grow.
Yours In Christ,
And The Akron Foursquare Church Family
