Thank you for allowing me to share how a personal relationship with Jesus Christ radically changed my life. I don't know where you are spiritually, but I would like to offer you the same gift I received in 1986. Allow me to share with you, four principles that will explain how you can know my Lord personally and experience His unconditional love for you.
God loves you and created you to have a personal relationship with Him.
You have missed the mark in life, so you are separated from Him and cannot know Him and experience that unconditional love.
Fortunately, God made provision for you by sending Jesus Christ, who is the only One who can wipe away anything you have ever done wrong.
In order to receive the gift of an abundant life on this earth and eternal life when you die, you must ask Jesus Christ to come into your heart to be your Savior and Lord.
You may ask, "How do I do this?" Dear friend, it is so very easy. Here's a little prayer you can pray to God. I guarantee you, He will answer with a big, "Yes."
"Dearest Lord Jesus,
I have lived my life my way. I need to change my direction. Please come into my heart and forgive me of everything I have ever done wrong. I need the peace you have to offer. I believe that You died on the cross for all of my wrongdoings. I believe that you were buried and you rose again according to the Scriptures. Thank you for forgiving me and giving me the abundant life on this earth and eternal life when I die. I ask you to be in control of my life so that I can be the kind of person you want me to be. It's in Jesus' name I pray. Amen."
If you just prayed this prayer, you can be sure that Jesus now lives in your heart. He will never leave you or forsake you.
In order to grow, it will be important to do the following things:
1. Build your relationship with Him by reading your Bible.
2. Talk to God in prayer about every detail of your life.
3. Find a Bible believing, Bible teaching church and get involved.
4. Trust the Lord for every detail of your life.
5. Ask God to send someone into your life who can disciple you.
If you made this very important and life changing decision would you let me know? I'd like to pray for you! My email address is email@example.com
Excellent Living is a weekly half-hour radio program hosted by speaker, author and former broadcast journalist Cheryl Martin.
Excellent Living is committed to enriching, empowering, enlightening, and encouraging listeners with practical and relevant Biblical truth for making wise choices and living with purpose. In today’s culture, many question the relevance of spending time reading the Bible, doing what it says, or attending church. They wonder, “What difference does it make in what I’m experiencing now, the challenges and crises of the 21st century?”
It is our desire that each program responds to that question with resounding evidence that God and His Word are powerful and essential for this generation, providing a reliable road map for navigating life successfully, with principles that are life transforming. It is our goal to affirm that “excellent living” is doing life God’s way, whether it’s managing finances, relationships, careers, or leisure. God’s playbook, the Bible, works as well today when it’s followed, as it has in past generations. Cheryl has experienced the joy of an intimate relationship with Christ since childhood and has watched Him fulfill dreams, conquer her fears, forgive her failures, and sustain her during tough times with a confident hope.
In a given month, the program format is a blend of practical advice with excerpts from Cheryl’s presentations on such topics as How to Make Wise Decisions, Becoming a Woman of Influence, or Success God’s Way; a monthly dialogue with relationship expert, Johnny Parker, and compelling interviews with guests who exemplify “excellent living” in their vocations and life choices.
Excellent Living is committed to producing cutting edge conferences and events that energize and transform participants because they learn the tools for sustainable joy and peace in the midst of life's uncertainties. Our free quarterly online newsletter features timely articles that inspire readers to develop a passion for knowing God and living with purpose.
