Jesus is the most influential person who ever lived. Christianity is not just a religion, it’s about a relationship with Jesus. God wants to be very close to us, and reaches out in relationship.
He sent Jesus to this world 2,000 years ago, to be who we couldn’t be, and to do what we couldn’t do.
The Bible explains this in these words:
‘God so loved the world, that He sent his one and only Son, so that whoever believes in Him, will not die, but will have everlasting life’.
If you’ve been checking out Christianity for a while now, and feel ready to make a commitment, here’s a simple prayer you could use. If you do pray this prayer, please let us know!
Dear Lord, thank you for your love for me, and for all that you have done for me.
Please forgive me for all I have done, which has hurt you and others. I am so sorry for my sins.
Thank you that on the cross you offer me forgiveness and show me the way to new life through the death and resurrection of Jesus.
Please come into my life and take over as my Lord and Saviour. I commit myself to you.
Please fill me with your Holy Spirit, and help me to live for you every day. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
