We are all about good news at Elava Vee Kogudus, and I truly have a good news message for you.  You can be forgiven, you have a Savior, and His Name is Jesus.

As I am sure you know, life can be hard.  There is nothing fulfilling in this world, nothing that truly satisfies for more than a day.  But I can tell you there is something else…  There is a God who loves you, and wants to give you true life.  It does not matter what you have done in the past, He will forgive you and He will fill you with His love and peace.  Jesus has already gone to the cross, the price for all your sins has been paid.  Not only your sins, but for the sins of the whole world.  To receive forgiveness, we just have to believe in Him.

There is more to life than just getting out of bed to go to work, so you can pay bills; the whole time living for the weekend. The only way to experience true satisfaction in life is to have a relationship with Jesus, and your heavenly Father.  Jesus can be as real to you as anyone in your life.  Life without Jesus is an empty life, but life with Jesus is a full life, where you can really live!

This is something that anyone can have if they will step across that faith line and believe.  Anyone can ask Jesus into their heart and life to be their Lord and Savior.  If you have never made Jesus your Lord, or if you have in the past, but know you have not been living right, I want to help you to make things right today.  Everyone needs a Savior, and today is the day of your Salvation.  Jesus is waiting for you!

I want to give you the words to say in a short prayer to God.  If you will pray these words from your heart, your life will be changed forever.  Pray this prayer now, and make Jesus the Lord of your life:

Heavenly Father, I come to you now in Jesus Name.
Jesus who loves me, and gave himself for me.
Jesus I love you, and I give myself to you.
Come into my heart, come into my life, make me new.
I ask you now to be my Savior, and be my Lord.
Father, by the precious blood of Jesus, cleanse me from all my sin.
Fill me now with Your love, Your peace, Your joy, and Your Holy Spirit
And give me the assurance that I am going to heaven, and will be with you forever.
Thank you for changing my life, and giving me hope and a future
In Jesus Name, Amen!

If you prayed that simple prayer from your heart today, you are changed, you have become a Christian.  You need to know God loves you, and God has a plan for your life, there is a path for you to take in life.  If you will follow Him as He leads you, you will live the abundant life Jesus paid for you to live.   Spend time reading God’s Word every day, and learn from Him and His ways.  Go to a good church that teaches the Bible, talk to God yourself daily, and spend time with other believers.   You will find your life will become more stable, more fruitful, more happy, and blessed.

God bless you!
