GOD WANTS TO BE YOUR DAD. Seriously. Its that simple. He wants to give you eternal life as one of His beloved children. And the only thing that you have to do to forever become a child of God is follow Jesus.
"This is the only work God wants from you: Believe in the one (Jesus) He has sent." John 6:29
But this world is hard and there are many things that can keep us from understanding what God wants. We often forget that we live in a fallen world, stuck in the middle of a spiritual battle for our souls. A fight between life and death. And we tend to become focused on everything in this world except this frightening battle. But earthly distractions just rob us of the undeniable truth: God loves all of us with all of His heart and only Jesus can give us life.
In fact, if you really think about it, the Bible makes so much more sense if we look at things from the viewpoint that God wants to save us from death and be our eternal Father. How would a Father do this? A good Father would rescue His children by forgiving them and providing the payment for their mistakes/sins. A good Father would love, heal, teach, protect, provide, guide, set limits, and sometimes discipline His children. And a good Father would want His children to cherish each other as brothers and sisters. The only thing that we have to do is believe in His plan, right?
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:16-17
Jesus is the King of kings, the Lord of lords, the lover of our souls, the mighty One, and the powerful One. He alone is worthy. He is the only way, the only truth, and the only life. And...Jesus wants to be your friend and help you.
Isn't it time that you chose life? Then just say this prayer aloud:
“Jesus, I believe You came in the flesh and died on the cross to pay for my sins...past, present, and future. I believe You rose from the dead to demonstrate God's Power and I believe You are alive today. And because of Your sacrifice, I can blamelessly be in my Fathers presence. Please give me life. In Jesus name, Amen.”
You are now a child of God, forever. Learn about Him and His love:
Aren't you excited? Do you see it now? You have eternal life! You also have a Savior that you can turn to about anything. He is on your side. Just speak to Him. He will show you the right way. You don't need to perform any rituals or make any sacrifices. Jesus already did that by paying for your sins out of His love for you. You just simply need to look to Jesus. Seek Him. Ask Him. Follow and learn from Him. Enjoy His presence in your life. And most importantly, praise Him because He is giving you life!
"'You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.' AND, 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'" Luke 10:27
Find a Bible believing church that teaches the love of the Father. Look for the fruit of brotherly love in that church. And spread the word. Find as many brothers and sisters as you can. Just remember...Dad's love and salvation are a gift. You cannot do anything to earn it; you can only receive it. And this gift is available to anyone and everyone. There are no qualifications. In fact, Jesus loved the people that the world hated. So take this gift, receive His Love into your heart, and watch His goodness transform your life.
God Bless you.
