Camp was the most wonderful adventure. I had the opportunity to teach one of the groups for our family group bible study. It made me realize how much I miss the class room. if you currently read your bible day--make it a point this week to look at the verbs or the action words. It is amazing how they illuminate what we as Christan should be doing. Another thing I had the kids do that I am going to use in my prayer journal. 3-2-1
3 praises for the day
2 people who need to know Jesus
1 question - Lord, what do you want me to do for you today? IF you are a night time studier you may want to change it to what did I do to further the Kingdom of Christ today?
I actually have watched the power of Christ make a radically transformation in child's life since he has accepted Christ as his Saviour. Because of this others are coming to know Christ. I think this has been especially exciting for me because most of the people I have seen come to know Jesus were raised in church and basically acted, talked and behaved similar to their previous standard. This person's attitude, language, behaviors, you name it --- made a "flip". If you do not know this ultimate POWER, please let me take this moment to share Christ with you.
Admit--that you are a sinner. We are have all sinned and fall short of the glory God. He wants us to repent and turn from our sinful nature Romans 3:23 Repent means to completely change directions-- make an 180 degree turn. Ask the Lord to forgive you and guide you. For the Wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans
Believe--that Jesus is God's son. For everyone that calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved Romans 10:13 The gift of salvation is free. All that he ask is that we call upon Him. He does not have a love that is based on conditions. He died a sacrificially death so that you may have eternal life with him in paradise. Our relationship with Him is not based on the works, the money we give or the perfect life we live, but that we yield our life to him. IF you truly seek Him, you will surely find Him. Seek him through prayer and reading the Bible.
Confess--Jesus as your Lord and Saviour. That if you confess with your mouth that "Jesus is Lord" and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9. When we confess it literally means to come clean or admit, we ask the Lord to take the burden of sin away. To accept Christ as our Lord and Saviour, you may say a simple prayer like this:
Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner,
And need your forgiveness.
I believe that you died for my sins.
I want to turn from my sins
I invite you now to come into my heart and life.
I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Saviour.
In Jesus Name ,
If you prayed this prayer, I encourage you to seek a local church. Talk with the preacher about your decision and make a public profession of your faith. Become active in church, read the Bible and pray daily. May God Bless you.
