Do you feel like you’re in the dark?

Does it feel like someone’s turned off the lights, and you can’t find the switch? Do you keep struggling to find a purpose in life, but you come up empty? Do you feel like there is a hole in your spirit or something missing and you just feel “off”?  
Has life got you “on the ropes”?
 
 
 

The truth is we are living separated from our original purpose. We’re separated from God, the only source of true light (Ecclesiastes 7:20, Romans 6:23). And we can‘t fix the problem through our own efforts toward good works (Ephesians 2:9).

Now, the good news …

God desperately wants a relationship with you. That’s why He sent His only Son, Jesus, to earth to take your sins—your pain, addictions, dysfunctions—on Himself (2 Corinthians 5:21).  Jesus paid the penalty for all sins!  And all so you can live in the light and enjoy a fulfilled relationship with Him—forever!

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16).

Flipping the Switch

The journey toward a fulfilled, illuminated life—begins when you take these three steps . . .

  1. ADMIT that you’ve tried without Him and come up short; that you’re separated from God.

    The Bible says that “All have sinned; all fall short of God’s glorious standard.” (Romans 3:23) We cannot please God through our own good works: “Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.” (Ephesians 2:9)Jesus himself said that we must “turn from our sins and turn to God.” (Matthew 4:17).

  2. BELIEVE that Jesus died in your place.

    Jesus died in your place, taking the punishment that you—we all—deserve (Romans 5:8). Three days later He rose from the dead to conquer the power of sin and death so that you could have new life (Romans 6:4-5).

  3. COMMIT your life entirely to Jesus and to following His lead.

    “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord . . . you will be saved,” (Romans 10:9)

When you take these steps, you will become a new person, and the Light will go on. You’ll also find your purpose, get to share the Light with others, and live a life for eternity in heaven with Jesus!

A Suggested Prayer

If you’re ready to receive the light of Jesus in your life, we encourage you to say this prayer:

Jesus, I admit to you that I’m a sinner, but I choose to turn from my old ways right now and trust you to save me from myself. I believe you have paid for my crimes and will forgive me and make me a new person. I commit myself to following you. Please come into my life by your spirit so I can live the light-filled life you’ve promised.

The lights are on.
