The Bible tells us that “God is love” (1 John 4:8). He is the Spirit of love, and He loves you and wants you to know and experience and revel in His love. But God is so great, so almighty, He is far beyond our finite human understanding. This is why He sent Jesus, His Son, to the world: to show us His love and to help us understand what He, God Himself, is like.
“For God so loved the world [you and me], that He gave His only begotten Son [Jesus], that whoever believes in Him should not perish [be separated from God’s love], but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). God loves you so much that He gave Jesus, who lived and died in this world so that you could hear His message of truth and receive the free gift of eternal heavenly life.
If you don’t yet know Jesus personally, you can receive Him and all the wonderful things He has to offer you right now. Even if you have questions and doubts about Him, He understands, and if you reach out to Him, He will make Himself real in your life. He says, “I stand at the door [of your heart] and knock. If you hear My voice and open the door, I will come into you” (Revelation 3:20).
Will you give Him a chance? He’s waiting for you. Just sincerely pray the following simple prayer:
Dear Jesus, I ask You to come into my heart. Please forgive me for all the wrongs I’ve done, and give me Your gift of everlasting life. Help me to love You, and help me to share Your love and truth with others. Amen.
Jesus said, “I have come that you might have life, and that you might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). Receiving Jesus not only guarantees you a brighter future, but a more fulfilled present. May His presence fill and bless your life in every way.
