A Simple Plan
SOLID ROCK CHRISTIAN CENTER
God is less concerned about your church membership than
He is about your connection to Him. He wants to know you and to walk with you and to be in your life. When we talk about “accepting Jesus,” what we actually mean is acknowledging Him and allowing Him to enter our heart and our mind and our conscious. It really is this simple.
God knows you.
He wants you to know Him. That anxiety we feel, that knot in
our stomach and the uncertainty over what life holds in
store for us: a lot of that is really not about what we have
but about what we need. We fill our lives with things,
hoping to fill that need, but material things and even
people can never address what’s really bothering us.
Many churches offer what is usually called “A Sinner’s Prayer,” which is a bit misleading because it makes people think THEY are sinners while WE are perfect. Knowing Christ will not make you perfect. We who believe in Christ are merely sinners saved by grace—God’s generosity and kindness. We still make mistakes. We still struggle with faults. But we have a friend in God.
What if I’m not ready?
What if I don’t believe in God?
This prayer is not a magic bullet.
It’s not like, Shazam! Say these words and you’re in. remember, God responds to our motives, to what’s in our heart. Share yours with Him today:
Lord Jesus, I’ve done a lot of wrong things in my life. Things
I’m not proud of. Things I wish I could change. I’m sorry for
those things I’ve done, and for those things I am now doing.
Lord, I don’t want to live this way anymore. I believe that You
died for me. I believe that You rose again, according to the
scriptures, and that You live today. I believe You want to be my
friend. I want to be Yours.
