Looking for hope? Needing a light in your time of darkness?"I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." - JesusDo you feel like you live in the dark? 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?
If you answered "yes" to any of these, you're not alone.You’re living in spiritual darkness—a human condition that’s the result of a broken relationship with God. We were all born to have a relationship with God. The Bible explains that because we’ve all sinned (turned our backs on God and chosen our own way), 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). We were trapped in our own guilt. Just like a criminal trying to talk a judge out of the sentence that was about to be handed down. It’s too late. The crime has been committed and someone needs to pay.
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 selfishness, addictions, dysfunctions—on Himself (2 Corinthians 5:21). Jesus paid the penalty for your crimes! 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...
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.
