One evening last week, we were hanging out in our living room, when Alyssa ran up to us with her newly drawn picture from Sunday School and stated, “Let me read this to you Mom & Dad: Dear God, be in my heart.” Immediately we stood up and applauded and with our prompting she proceeding to “read” it again and again. It brought tears to our eyes knowing that our two-year-old daughter was now on the beginnings of her own path to salvation.
Isn’t it amazing that God, the Creator of the Universe, made the gospel so simple that even a child could understand it? Let me ask you, when did you ask God into your heart? Can you remember where you were? What you said? And how your life changed from that moment forward? I want to encourage you to take time this week to reminisce when you asked God into your heart and ponder all that He has done since that day. With Easter approaching, there couldn’t be a better time to thank Jesus for the gift of Salvation through the Cross.
Let me also state that if you can’t remember asking God into your heart – no worries -because you can ask Him into your heart today and I will be your witness! The truth is that it is never too late to surrender your life to God. God loves you so much. God sent His own Son to the cross to pay the price for your sin. The Blood of Jesus was shed for your forgiveness, righteousness and eternal life. Romans 10:9-10 tells us that all you need to do is confess Jesus with your mouth and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead and you are saved. Let’s pray this together, shall we? “Jesus, I ask You to come into my heart and I believe that You were raised from the dead and You are the Son of God who now sits at the right hand of God. I confess that I am a sinner in need of Your grace. Please take my life and transform it for Your purposes. Amen.” My friend, you are officially saved and I celebrate with you! If you prayed this prayer, please click on my contact page and let me know – I want to pray for you and I declare that the best is yet ahead for you!!
“Lord, with Easter approaching I cannot help but thank You for the Cross. May I never take for granted the precious Blood that was shed for me. You are an amazing God. Thank you for making the gospel so simple. I give you my life and ask that I bring You glory each day. Amen.”
