Your Word for 16 April 2024

Colossians 1:13
‘He has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of His dear Son.’

Step 3: Something to BELIEVE. (11 Corinthians 5:15)
“He died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto Him which died for them, and rose again.” True belief is total commitment to Jesus Christ. It means to trust completely in what He has done for you. “For HE (God the Father) hath made HIM (Jesus, the Son) TO BE SIN FOR US … that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.” (11 Corinthians 5:21) True belief is to place your entire life and eternal destiny into the hands of Jesus, who has already died on the cross, bearing all the guilt and penalty of your sin.
Step 4: Something to DO. (Revelation 3:20)
Taking this step will give you the power to keep on living a changed life.
Ask Jesus Christ into your life to be your Lord to control you, your Saviour to cleanse you, your Friend to guide and be with you. So many miss this last step and never come to know Jesus Christ. No verse in the Bible makes this last step clearer than Revelation 3:20. Jesus is speaking, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I WILL COME INTO HIM.” Jesus waits outside the door of your life. He will not force his way in. He wants to be invited in. The handle is on the inside; only you can open the door. You become a true Christian when you open the door of your life to Jesus Christ.
CONSIDER Matthew 10:38
Jesus never promised it would be easy to follow Him. Except opposition, sneers and misunderstanding – for every part of your life, your friendship, work, family, time, money, all must come under His control. IF you want to make a decision right now, look for a quiet place, get down on your knees and earnestly pray this prayer

Dear Lord Jesus,
I know I have sinned in my thoughts, words and actions.There are so many good things I have not done. There are so many sinful things I have done. I am sorry for my sins and turn from everything I know to be wrong. I know You gave Your life upon the cross for me Gratefully I give my life back to You. Now I ask you to come into my life. Come in as my Saviour to cleanse me, Come in as my Lord to control me Come in as my Friend to be with me,And by Your grace, I will serve You all the remaining years of my life in complete obedience.
Amen
