An Invitation to Meet Jesus Christ
A word from Brian: "During the past 16 years - I have interacted with and ministered to a lot of people in religious settings. I have personally watched the Holy Spirit convict the lives of thousands and thousands of men, women, boys and girls during altar calls and ministry event invitations. I've had the awesome privilege of seeing alot of eyes and hearts opened to the Truth of Jesus Christ. I've also had the opportunity to pray with multiple Sunday School teachers, Deacons and even (3) three Pastors to accept Jesus into their lives for the very first-time. Yes - I said Pastors. They knew all about Him, but didn't know Him personally.
Please understand this right now - "Religion is a man-made thing, but a relationship with Jesus Christ is a God thing. Having a one-on-one relationship with Jesus is everything and it is the most important decision you will ever make in your life. You can memorize the whole Bible, go to church every time the doors are open and do all kinds of great things for people, but if you have never truly invited Jesus Christ to come into your life and to be your best friend - you have nothing. Many people are willing to have Jesus as part of their lives - as long as it doesn't cost them anything. They may even profess faith in Jesus and join a church. I know all about it first-hand because I made a profession of faith, got baptized and joined a church at the age of 12 years old and nothing changed in my life. I did not gain a relationship with God, I just became religious for a very short time. I have heard this same story from hundreds and hundreds of others as well - including the Pastor I mentioned above. For alot of people, Jesus is almost like an insurance policy - something they obtain and then forget about until they die. Heaven is for real and so is Hell; eternity is but a breath away. Please don't live another minute on this earth without experiencing the freedom and peace that comes from truly having Jesus in your life."
Below you will find some questions, please read through them and listen for the Holy Spirit of God. Please understand that I am not trying to make you question your salvation. By God's leading - I am trying to ensure that you and everyone else that comes here will leave this website knowing that they do or do not have this very important relationship that I have talked about above. I am convinced that when a person sincerely searches for God with all of their heart, God will reveal Himself in some way. Let Him reveal Himself to you right now.
Jesus made everything so simple and so many times we (Pastors and the religious community) make it very complicated. He spoke to the people in short sentences and everyday words, illustrating His messages with never-to-be forgotten stories. I hope that the following questions and statements have the same clarity that His words did and still do today:
1. Have you asked Jesus Christ into your heart and asked Him to be Lord of your life? If so, how did your life change?
2. What things and bad habits did you give up when you accepted Jesus into your life?
3. Do you pray? If so - do you pray for others and their needs or just for your wants and needs?
4. Do you have a longing to read the Bible and learn more about God?
5. Can anyone tell that there is something different about you? Are you different in certain ways or are you just like everybody else in the world?
6. How are you different?
7. Do you abuse alcohol or use drugs and not feel convicted about it?
8. How about the way you talk - do you use bad language and have no conviction?
9. Do you have pre-marital sex and not feel convicted about it?
10. Do you feel compassion for people - no matter their skin color?
11. Do you hate certain people?
12. Have you heard God speaking to you? After reflecting on the questions above - I once again ask you: Have you truly accepted Christ and let God into your life?
There's an old saying that I once heard and it goes like this : "IF IT LOOKS AND WALKS LIKE A DUCK AND IT QUACKS LIKE A DUCK , THE CHANCES ARE GREAT THAT IT IS A DUCK." So think about this, " IF YOU WALK AND TALK LIKE A LOST PERSON THAT DOES NOT KNOW JESUS CHRIST, THERE'S A VERY GOOD CHANCE THAT YOU ARE A LOST PERSON AND THAT YOU DO NOT KNOW HIM."
Maybe you're reading this and you have never gone to church or been told the truth about Jesus Christ. Friend, I'm here to tell you today GOD LOVES YOU! He gave His only Son's life for you. He is waiting with open arms to receive you, if you'll step out and walk to Him. He is real and is just waiting for you to take that first step to Him. He is waiting and He will run to you if you let Him. As long as you're still alive, God has a plan for your life. You're not too broken or too sinful to be made beautiful in His hands!
Do you know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior?
If you don't, come with me to the foot of the cross and ask Jesus from the bottom of your heart to come into your life. If you mean it with all your heart and soul, He will make you brand new. He'll give you a peace like no other and He will empower you to be the kind of person you should be. I know, because He did it for me and He can do it for you too.
Maybe you know that you have made that choice before, but you have let the world and Satan attack and use you to let other people see negative things about God and Christianity. I'm not going to say that you need to get re-baptized or that you need to rededicate your life to Jesus, but anytime is a good time to renew your relationship with Him and to re-discover His love and forgiveness. If you know that you've made that decision previously, but you know your relationship with God could be better, I invite you to go to the Father on your knees and ask Him to enable you to seek Him with a passion and to reveal Himself to you, so that you can re-kindle your friendship with Him. If you have never asked Jesus to come into your life, I invite you to keep reading...
If you would like to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, please speak out the prayer below with all of your heart. God knows your heart and if you pray this prayer honestly and with sincerity, He will embrace you and your name will be written in the book of life and even the angels in heaven will rejoice and celebrate because of your decision to choose God as your Lord and Savior!
DEAR JESUS ....... RIGHT NOW I ADMIT THAT I HAVE SINNED AGAINST OTHERS AND AGAINST MYSELF, BUT MOST OF ALL, AGAINST YOU. PLEASE FORGIVE ME OF ALL MY SINS.
BY FAITH, I ACCEPT YOU AND I INVITE YOU TO COME INTO MY HEART AND SOUL AND TO BE THE LORD OF MY LIFE. I ASK FOR YOUR POWER TO RESIST THE TEMPTATION TO SIN. LORD I BELIEVE THAT YOU SENT YOUR SON AND THAT HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD FOR ME. I BELIEVE YOU ARE THE ONLY TRUE GOD. JESUS I KNOW YOU LOVE ME, BECAUSE YOU PROVED IT BY DYING ON THE CROSS TO PAY THE PENALTY FOR MY SINS. THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME ETERNAL LIFE WITH YOU.
JESUS, I KNOW THE DEVIL WILL WORK TO DECEIVE ME EACH AND EVERYDAY, BUT I ASK YOU TO GIVE ME STRENGTH TO ALWAYS WIN OVER SIN AND TEMPTATION. YOU DEFEATED DEATH AND THE DEVIL THE DAY YOU WALKED OUT OF THE TOMB AND NOW I HAVE YOU IN MY LIFE. THANK YOU FOR ACCEPTING ME AND FOR ALLOWING ME TO BE PART OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.
YOUR WORD SAYS, "WHOEVER THE SON SET'S FREE, IS FREE INDEED." THANK YOU JESUS FOR SETTING ME FREE.
IN JESUS' NAME I PRAY, AMEN.
If you prayed this prayer and you truly mean't every word of it, Congratulations, you are a Child of God now! Share your good news with others. Salvation is always “good news.” It is news of God’s love and forgiveness—adoption into His family— fellowship with His people—freedom from the penalty of sin and liberation from the power of sin.
If you made a decision today to follow Jesus Christ, please send me a message below and let me know. I would love to celebrate with you as well. God bless you.
Your brother in Christ,
