Salvation prayer

Do you want to receive Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour and enter a living relationship with Him? We encourage you to pray this prayer:

 

Lord Jesus, thank you for loving me and dying on the cross to pay the price for my sin. I believe You are the Son of God, my Saviour. I receive the forgiveness Your blood bought for me. Thank you that I don’t have to live my life without You anymore. You live in my heart through the Holy Spirit. Because of Your finished work on the cross I have an abundant and eternal life from today and into heaven. Thank you, Father, that I am now Your beloved child. Amen.

 

You are now God’s child! Read these Scriptures to be sure that you are saved: John 1:12 – those who believe in Him, are His children, 1 John 5:12-13 – you can know that you have eternal life, John 10:27-28 – no one can snatch you out of His hand.

The basis for hope

Hope. Without it we become despondent and merely drift through the minutes of daily life. With hope, we can smile at the future and weather the storms.

Romans 15:13 (NIV) 
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

This verse reminds me of a mathematical equation: something plus something equals something else.
Joy + peace = hope

Can you see it? But even joy and peace needs to come from somewhere. Again, the verse tells us where it comes from. Joy and peace comes from trusting God.

So the origin of our hope for the future is that we trust God. Another word for trust is faith. We trust in God when we believe in Him. We believe in who He is – in His goodness, His love, His faithfulness and so much more. This trust brings joy and peace into our hearts which in turn leads to hope. The Bible-kind of hope is a confident expectation of good.
 
May hope overflow in your heart today as you put your trust in God! Jesus Christ is proof of His love and faithfulness towards us. 

Stay blessed. You remain in our prayers.
