Jesus is the single biggest reason we live in loving relationship with God, our Father. The understanding of who He is and what He did for us is significant because in Jesus we have an abundance of love and life in God. Not only are we guaranteed life after our time here, but we are also promised a fuller life than we could ever imagine on earth.“ I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of.”(John 10:10, MSG)
First and foremost, Jesus is the son of God who lived as a man on earth and sacrificed His life for us to restore our relationship with God. No one body of text captures who Jesus is, what sacrifice He made and what life we have as a result of His obedience like Colossians 1:13-23 (MSG).
We were not born perfect. We are all born into a nature that is enmity with God. Infant the Bible says we are all sinners (Romans 3:23). But Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross provides a way to a fresh start—a life characterized by a loving relationship with God.
So how do you get a fresh start? It’s simple. Jesus says in John 14:6 that He is the way to God, and if we believe in Him, we will be saved (Acts 16:30). In 1 John 1:9, the Bible says that if we confess our sins, God readily and eagerly forgives us and restores our relationship with Him. If you would like to get this fresh start, pray the short prayer below:
Dear God,I come to you today with all my sins and inadequacies. I have tried too long to make it on my own. I want the fullness of life that comes from your love. Today I ask that you forgive me of the things I have done wrong in the past. Help me put you first in my life. Help me stay committed to my journey with you. I am grateful for Jesus sacrifice. I believe in my heart and confess with my mouth that Jesus is now Lord over my life.Thank you for saving me. Thank you for my fresh start. Thank you that I am now a Christian.In Jesus name. Amen.
