There Must Be More

One of life’s greatest pleasures is when you wake up in the morning only to realize you have another hour before your alarm actually goes off. Isn’t it funny how we attempt to savour every last second of being in bed before getting up and facing the day? The reality is, life can be just so… blah sometimes. It’s the same dreary routine: waking up, going to work, tolerating your mundane existence from Monday to Friday, always counting the hours before Friday night officially begins.

You can’t just live for the weekend, or keep waiting for something more exciting to happen.

It is absolutely possible to live a life of purpose; but sometimes it’s just hard to grasp “destiny”. What makes you tick?

After you have watched the video above, consider the following:

Take a look at your life. How would you describe it?

Contented? Rushed? Exciting? Stressful? Moving forward? Holding back? For many of us it’s all of the above at times. There are things we dream of doing one day, and there are things we wish we could forget. In the Bible, it says that Jesus came to make all things new. What would your life look like if you could start over with a clean slate?

Are you ready to choose a different path?

Jesus came, and died, and rose again to wipe the slate clean. He was scourged, tormented, and finally nailed on the cross for humankind’s sins – this was all part of God’s plan to bring you and I back into relationship with him. God wants to be a part of your life … in fact, not just a part of your life, but wants you to live in full fellowship with Him. Is this the life for you?

God loves you and created you to know Him personally. He longs for you to have the kind of full life you were always meant to have. So why do people not experience this kind of life? People are lost and separated from God, so we cannot know Him personally or experience His love. Because of our sins, we justly deserve judgement. But God provided his Son, Jesus Christ, as the only provision for our sin. He died in our place, then he rose from the dead.

We must individually trust Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord; then we can know God personally, receive forgiveness for our sins, and experience His love: “As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God” (John 1:12)

We trust God through faith. You can trust Christ right now by faith through prayer! (Prayer is just talking with God.) God knows your heart and is not so concerned with your words as He is with the attitude of your heart. The following is a suggested prayer:

Lord Jesus, I need you. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of the throne of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be.

Does this prayer express the desire of your heart?

If it does, pray this prayer right now, and Christ will come into your life, just as He promised.

  • If all the true believers of the world reached their fullest potential there would be a lot more people coming to know God. Then the Great Commission would be nearly complete.

    Barbara, so glad for your encouragement.

    Abraham, thank God that it is His work to draw people to Himself by His Holy Spirit, even though we are all sinners, sinners saved by grace! How do you find yourself living out your faith?

  • Abraham says:

    Jesus came, and died, and rose again to wipe the slate clean. I was born in a respectable muslim family, and than in His mercy called me to accept him, who wipe me clean.
    I am honest to say – if all the Christians of the world could be the real follower of Christ than there would not be any religion anymore.

    Uplifting. Thank you.
