My friend, Jesus loves you and has a plan for your life. I ask you to take a few minutes to examine with me where you're at in life. Basically, there are four types of people in the world:
1. People who don't know the Lord.
Perhaps you've never met Jesus Christ, received His forgiveness, and made Him your Lord and Savior. My friend, making Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior is the wisest and most important decision you will ever make
2. People who are religious and know about the Lord.
You may be a good, religious person --- perhaps you've even attended church all your life yet you've never developed a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
3. People who have backslidden.
Maybe you've known the Lord, but you've backslidden and drifted away from Him. You've lost your hunger for the things of God and you've grown worldly in actions and desires.
4. People who have received His forgiveness and are right with God.
I often ask people this. If you were on an airplane that was getting ready to crash and you knew you were going to die, would you pray to God or would you praise Him?
People who aren't right with God would quickly pray and ask His forgiveness. People who are right with Him would begin to praise Him because they know that in a matter of moments they are going to stand before Him and they are ready for that moment.
My friend, if you need forgiveness, pray this prayer out loud with me now:
"Dear Jesus, thank You for your love. Thank You for your presence. Thank you for not leaving me alone. I know I have sinned. I've done wrong. I've hurt you, myself and others. Forgive me, Jesus. Wash me. Cleanse me and make me new. This day, I give you my life. Come into my heart. Be my Savior. Be my Lord and my very best friend. From this moment forward, I am Yours and You are mine. Come live Your life through me. In Your precious name, amen."
