So it’s a new year. What if instead of promising to stick to some crazy resolutions you had a chance for a new life…an entirely new, leave your baggage behind kind of life? Interested?
If your past years have only left you sad, wondering aimlessly, totally lost, angry, depressed, disappointed, and hurt, it’s time to move on. This is your chance. How do you do it? It’s easy. Here’s how.
1. Admit that you are a sinner: Romans chapter 3 tells us that all of us have sinned. You, me, everyone. Nobody is perfect and we all know that.
2. Believe that Jesus is the Son of God: Romans chapter 5 tells us that Jesus died for us…for all of us. When Jesus was nailed to that cross he took all of our sins with Him. Your sins were nailed to that cross with Christ. You are forgiven through His sacrifice for all of us.
3. Confess your sins to Christ and ask Him to be the leader of your life: You see eternal life is a gift from God. Romans tells us that the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. That is what salvation is all about.
It is really that simple. Admit that you are a sinner, believe that Jesus is the Son of God, and confess your sins to Christ and ask Him to be the leader of your life.
If you do these three things your future will be much different than your past. You now have the hope found only in Christ Jesus. You will experience joy and peace like never before.
Does this mean your life will only be roses and sunshine from now on? Absolutely not. You will have struggles in life…we all do. That’s part of being alive. The difference is this…you are not walking the path of life alone anymore. You now have a personal relationship with the God of creation.
So…tired of living on your own? Tired of trying to always do things your way and discovering it doesn’t work? Then the start of 2015 is a great time to change your past. Allow Christ to lead you and you’ll never be the same again.
