Christ As Your Personal Savior
Have you ever wondered WHO Albert is honoring
when he raises his hand to the sky after he
reaches base, scores, or hits a homerun? In
1998 Albert's most thrilling accomplishment
came when he accepted Christ as his personal
Lord and Savior. His soon to be wife, Deidre
shared with him how much Jesus loved him. Albert
will tell you the most exciting moment in his
life is when he realized Christ died on the
cross for his sins. At that moment he understood
by accepting Christ as his Savior he would be
spending eternity with Christ in heaven. As
thrilling as winning the World Series was for
Albert and his team, he believes that having
a relationship with Jesus does not even compare
to being a World Champion. A World Series ring
will one day tarnish but a relationship with
Christ will last for eternity.
If you feel there is something
missing in your life. That something
is someone...Jesus Christ. You have tried
to do it on your own for so long and now you
know its time to make a change. Inside
every one of us is a God-shaped void. That void
is the need for Jesus Christ. Jesus did for
us what we could not do for ourselves. He paid
the price of our sins by dying on the cross.
He not only lived a perfect life and died for
our sins but he also defeated sin by rising
again on the third day. Our part is accepting
this free gift of salvation.
If you would like to ask Jesus
Christ into your life, pray this prayer:
Lord Jesus, thank You for loving me. I
know that I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness.
I know that You died on the cross for my sins
and rose from the dead. I want to turn from
my sins and give You control of my life. Please
come into my life right now, Lord. Help me to
follow You always. Amen. Acts 3:19;
2 Corinthians 5:17.
If you prayed this prayer, you
are a new creation in Christ! The Bible tells
us The old is gone and the new has come.
By making this decision to follow Christ you
now have the peace only Christ can offer. Find
a church that teaches from the Bible and make
a difference in someone else's life by sharing
Christ with them.
