Becoming Friends with God:  3rd Step CHOOSING                   2019

Last month I learned that becoming friends with God is as easy as a,b,c.  First, I need to ADMIT my sin and selfishness which separates me from Holy ________.  Second, I must BELIEVE that __________ died on the cross for me (in my place).  The Bible says, “We are made right with God by placing our faith (belief) in Jesus Christ.  And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who you are.” (Romans 3:22)   And last, I must CHOOSE Jesus as Savior and Lord of my __________

God gives me the freedom to worship whomever or whatever I choose.  I can make anything I want the most important (#1) thing in my life (my lord).  For some people, it is money; for others, it is having many friends or being famous.  What or who is the MOST important to me?  ____________________ Why should I choose JESUS?? 

3 Amazing Reasons to choose Jesus as my Savior and Lord: 

1-No one else will ever _________ me like He does.  He gave it all for me and loves me no matter what I do or have done.  He wants to be my best ________________ forever (BFF).

2-No one else can f________________ my sin and selfishness and tear down the wall which separates me from Holy God. 

3-Jesus is the only One who promises to send the H___________ S________________ to live in me and to guide, comfort and teach me.

 

But how do I choose Jesus and make Him the Lord (#1) of my life?  I must desire & spend time talking and listening to Him through p_______________ and reading the B__________.  Then I choose to trust and o_______ Him instead of doing what I want.  Romans 12:1 (Msg) says, “…Take your everyday, ordinary life-your sleeping, eating, going to (school) work, and walking around life- and place it before God…”  I give up my “self” (selfish wants) and choose to follow ______________ every day instead.  This is God’s way for me to have the best life now and forever.  But I must make the choice; God gives me free will to decide for myself.  

 

Table Prayer:  Let’s thank God for His gracious and precious gift of abundant life starting right now on earth when I A-B-C- and for eternal (forever) life in heaven with HIM. 

 

CHALLENGEHave you chosen Jesus to be the Savior and Lord of your life?  If not, just do it!! (J.D.I.)  There is no better time!  HE is patiently waiting for you.
