I’m a bad person.
There’s nothing I’ve ever done in my life that’s good enough to get me into Heaven.
That makes me bad. Jesus died on the cross to make sure that bad people like me were able to enter the gates of Heaven. I’m so thankful for that and all the other blessings he’s bestowed upon me. I can never say thank you enough.
Honestly, I’m a good person. I tithe. I don’t do drugs or drink alcohol. I do what I can for others around me. But all that isn’t enough. I have to build a relationship with Jesus. That’s what truly matters. So many people think that they can do good things to get them further with God, but that isn’t true. Having a one-on-one with God/Jesus is the only way. If there ever was something we could have done to get us into Heaven, God wouldn’t have had to send his Son to Earth and offer him up in exchange for our sins. It’s a simple, profound, and wonderful thing.
So, if anyone of you feel as though you need to try to be good enough before you ask Jesus into your heart, don’t worry. You’ll never be good enough, so there’s no time like the present. Say this prayer:
DEAR HEAVENLY FATHER,
I KNOW THAT I AM A SINNER. I BELIEVE YOU SENT YOUR SON TO DIE ON THE CROSS FOR MY SINS. I ASK JESUS TO COME INTO MY HEART SO THAT I CAN BE FREED OF THESE SINS AND BE MADE A NEW CREATION, BE MADE WHOLE AGAIN. I KNOW YOU LOVE ME MORE THAN ANYONE ON THIS EARTH AND THAT YOU WANT ME TO JOIN YOU IN YOUR KINGDOM, SO PLEASE ACCEPT ME IN.
A NEW CHILD OF GOD
Our Heavenly Father paid the price for all of us before our Earthly parents planned our existence. Jesus built a bridge to Heaven with only two pieces of wood…. The Cross.
What a loving God!
