Know Him

Know Him2018-08-11T21:18:33-04:00

To know Him is to love Him. Knowing Him transforms. He’s waiting for you…

If you don’t know Jesus, I would love to introduce you to Him. To know Him is to love Him. It’s a relationship like no other. All it takes is childlike faith, and the opening of your heart to receive Him. It’s our sin, or things we’ve done wrong, that separates us from God. It only takes one sin, and we’re all guilty of it (Romans 3:23, NKJV). Jesus, God’s Son, is the only way to the Father (John 14:6, NKJV). Jesus paid the price for sin with His life by dying on the cross for you and me. He overcame death, hell and the grave when He rose again. He suffered and died in our place so we can have eternal life. You can’t earn it because the price was paid by His blood.

His love for you surpasses understanding. He leaves love notes just for you all over creation and in His Word. He does this in hopes that you will reach out to Him.

If you don’t have a relationship with Jesus and want one, pray the following prayer. He’s waiting for you to invite Him into your life (John 3:16, NKJV).

Dear Jesus, I ask you to be my Lord and Savior. I confess that I have done wrong which is sin. My sin is worthy of death and hell without You in my life. I believe that you are the Son of God; You died on the cross for my sins; rose from the grave to live again; and are now seated at the right hand of God. You died so I can have eternal life. Your blood cleanses me and makes me worthy. Please come into my heart to live forever with me as my Savior and Lord. I confess that I am Your child. Please fill me with Your Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ name, amen.

First things first; welcome to the family! You are now a new creation in Christ. Now it’s important to join with other believers who believe and live God’s word. Find a church that preaches and teaches the word of God… the Bible. Nothing but the truth and the whole truth! Pray and ask the Lord to lead you to your church home because He already has it picked for you.

God’s word also teaches that you are to follow your declaration of faith in Jesus as your Lord and Savior with water baptism. Jesus, God’s Son, thought it was important enough that He insisted on being baptized (Matthew 3:13-17, NKJV). Immersion baptism is a visible covenant, or pledge, that symbolizes that you are now following in the footsteps of Jesus. He is your best example for everything in life and your pattern for living in this world.

Last, but definitely not least, read and study His word, and talk to Him through prayer. Get to know Him and get growing! Check out the resources page to find trustworthy sources. Jesus is all about relationship, not religion. Talk to Him as you would a friend sitting next to you because He already is.

To everything there is an appointed time and season, but it’s a rare moment when you’re supposed to go it alone. People and resources are strategically placed in your path to be part of the Christian growth cycle. What I’ve come to realize is our Lord cares about EVERY part of our life… spiritual, physical, mental, emotional and even social! He wants us to walk in wholeness and live in abundance now.

The following resources have spoken life into me and have played an essential part in my journey of growth, healing and restoration. Some were planters, others watered, and some were just plain fertilizer to stimulate growth! Regardless of where they fit in the process, all are God-appointed treasures along my journey. I recommend, without reservation, they be part of yours, too. Blessings to you for a fruitful and abundant life!
