How to begin a new life
Before you were born
God planned that you should come to know Him. Because “He has set eternity in the hearts of men”. You will not discover a lasting peace or hope until you discover the One from eternity, Jesus Christ. This may be why you are here today. “It’s in Christ that you find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ… He had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living.” Ephesians 1:11
While you’re on Earth
… you are to live in preparation for eternity. Life is for the purpose of learning to worship God; loving his followers; living like Jesus; serving others; and for sharing your faith.
When your life is over
… you will stand before God and give an account of how you have lived. (Roman. 14: 10-12) He will be interested in two things: what you did with his Son, Jesus Christ, and what you did with the time, talent, and resources God gave you. Your answer will determine where you spend eternity, and what you do there.
Eternity begins here
ADMIT you are tired of living your life independent of God. Simply be willing to leave sin behind and follow Him. BELIEVE God gave his Son, Jesus, to die for your sins, then raised Him to life again so you could know God’s love and forgiveness forever (John 3:16-18) RECEIVE eternal life by asking Jesus to save you, and receiving the Holy Spirit. “To all who received Him, to those who believed in his Name, he gave the right to become children of God” (John 1:12)
