Who We Are as Christians (cont'd)
I'd like you to stop for a moment and look at this salvation scene. Does this strike a chord deep within your soul? Have you given your life to Jesus Christ, asking Him to enter into your soul and take charge? Have you surrendered your will to Him and your future to Him? Are you willing to become an agent of His life-giving Kingdom, working with Him to restore all creation to its original God-reflecting glory?
Looking honestly at your life, if you realize you have not put your faith in Jesus Christ, then right now would be a perfect time to do so. You can do it with a simple prayer, something like this:
Dear God, thanks for loving me and pursuing me. I admit I've been going my own way,
trying to control my own life. Please forgive me. Come into my life, Lord Jesus. Take
control. Help me to follow you with growing devotion and to be a devoted agent of your
Kingdom on earth.
Dear friend, if you have offered this prayer up to God, then guess what? You are saved! You are born again! You are now part of God's eternal Kingdom. Jesus assures you: "Whoever hears my word and believes in me has eternal life; they have crossed over from death to life" (John 5:24). If you offered this prayer, I'd love to know about it soon. Please email or call me at 858-509-2586. I want to rejoice with you and send you a wonderful booklet that will help you get growing!
This is what we at SBPC understand to be the Christian life. We are truly excited about it and seek to live it out in all we do.
