There is a longing inside each of us…
It is something that no one or nothing in this world can fill. It is a need that God created inside my heart from the very beginning. Only God can fill this longing. Only God can show me love like I’ve never been shown before.
God can make me whole, and it begins with a relationship with Jesus. God send Jesus as my Saviour. ‘Saviour’ might have been a new word to me. A Saviour is someone who rescues me.
I need rescuing from the wrong and immoral thins I do, which is sin. I fall short of that of that standard of Holiness set by God. I can try and achieve it by being good, but that is like reaching for the unreachable. It’s impossible, I cannot save myself.
The good news is that God is not waiting around for me to clean myself up, that’s something that he will help me with.
God sent Jesus to earth to save me. Jesus took the judgement and punishment I deserve when he died on the Cross. Even while I was sinning Jesus died for me. That’s how much he loves me. He come back to life in three days, proving that he has all authority, even over death. He was sent by God and he is with me now, even though I do not see him!
Jesus’ part was to take the punishment on the cross. My part is to believe and act on what Jesus did by admitting my sin, going to him for forgiveness, and asking him to be my saviour, my rescuer. I am saying yes to these things, I confess to You Lord Jesus. I turn my heart and mind to you, by the confession of my prayer.
‘Jesus, I believe you were sent by God to take the punishment I deserve and to be my Saviour. Please forgive me and free me from my sin. Come into my life and fulfil the longing in my heart that I have had for so long. Guide me to understand and follow your ways. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. I love you, Jesus. In your name I pray. Amen’
Seun gee hierdie gister vir my en vra ek moet dit asseblief lees sodra ek in die kar klim……
‘Waneer God jou na ‘n afgrond lei, Vertrou Hom ten volle dan sal, net een van 2 dinge gebeur, of Hy sal jou vang wanneer jy val, of Hy sal jou leer om te vlieg’
En ek bly nog steeds hoop….. en bid……
