Somewhere along the line, we were all facing issues. We were lost. And someone stepped in and listened. They showed us love. Life-giving love.
And through that listening ear, that person walking with us, we learned something: we learned that love...has a face. And it’s the face of Jesus Christ.
We still face issues, but we have found abundant life that fills us with boundless joy.
And we want to help you discover it too.
Just as we are all longing for something more - for a sense of purpose, of identity, of love - God is longing to call us ‘precious son’, ‘beloved daughter’.
God created us for abundant life. To know him personally, with no obstacles. To be alive with joy, purpose, and meaning every day.
But we weren’t satisfied. Pride got in the way and we turned our backs on God. We sinned by choosing our own way. That’s how death and pain and evil and loneliness came into the world.
We may not like to admit it, but we do it every day: we put ourselves first, choose selfishness over the selfless love we were created to express.
With one rebellious choice, relationship with God was severed.
Despite our rebellion, God loved us so much that he sent his only son, Jesus, to die the death we deserve. He was perfect, but he died a criminal’s death on the cross to pay the price of our sins, to restore the relationship with God that our sin severed.
God raised Jesus from the dead after three days, and just as he entered eternal life in glory, he invites us to as well.
He offers full, true, abundant life to anyone who’s willing to trust in him and in what he did for us. It’s a free gift, but it still costs us our pride. We’re saved when we stop trying to save ourselves and instead trust Jesus enough to give Him everything: every joy, every struggle, every thing.
If you want to face God, and choose that abundant life of love, then you can use this prayer or your own words to deny sin and regain your place in His family:
God, I long to know your unconditional love. I have tried to fill my life with many things that do not satisfy. I have hurt others and I have hurt you with my words and actions, and I’m sorry. I believe that you died on the cross to spare me from the consequences I deserve and that you rose from the dead into eternal life. I want to live it with you. Take control of my life, because I know that you alone can satisfy me. Amen.
