Have you ever wondered why your life lacks true meaning?

God can give your life meaning if you will take these five steps.

steps

Step 1

Recognize that.....GOD LOVES YOU and Has a Plan for Your Life

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever
believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)

Step 2

Recognize that.....Everyone has SINNED and SIN SEPERATES YOU from GOD

SIN is man walking in his own way in rebellion against God's will.
When we walk away from God, we walk away from life.
For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)

As sinners we futilely try to find life's true meaning in the wrong ways and places.
There is a way that seems right to man, but it leads to death. (Pro. 14:12)

Our own efforts can't save us
For it is by grace that you have been saved, though faith-and this is not from yourselves,
it is the GIFT of God-not by works, so that no one can boast. (Eph. 2:8-9)

Step 3

JESUS DIED AND ROSE AGAIN FOR OUR SINS

He DIED in OUR place.
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this:
While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Rom. 5:8)

JESUS is the WAY to New Life.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation;
the old has gone, the new has come!" 2 Cor. 5:17)

He gives INNER PEACE.
We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ Rom. 5:1)

AND FREEDOM.
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. (John 8:36)

AND ETERNAL LIFE.
...but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Rom. 6:23)

Step 4

ASK GOD for FORGIVENESS

CONFESS YOUR SINS TO GOD
He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses
and renounces them finds MERCY. (Pro. 28:13

FORGIVENESS is PROMISED.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins
and purify us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9)

Step 5

ballPlace Your TRUST in CHRIST and Receive HIM as Your SAVIOR.

CHRIST is READY.
Here I am! I stand at the door and knock, if anyone hears my voice

and opens the door. I will go in... (Rev. 3:30)

Receive HIM NOW.
Yet to all who receive him, to those who believed in his name
he gave them the right to become children of God.

Lord Jesus, I want to have a life with meaning. I want to leave the darkness behind
and have Your Light within me. I confess that I have sinned and I ask Your forgiveness.
I believe that You died for me and I accept You as my Savior.
I will turn away from a life of darkness and sin and now follow You.
It is Your grace and power that will enable me to live for You.
Thank-You, Jesus, for saving me, and for giving me a new life in Your Light.
Amen!

If you just prayed that prayer....follow me!angel
