Let Us Pray
Heavenly Father, all glory and honor and praise belongs to You. Please receive our prayer.
Lord, we want to honor You. We want to be effective witnesses and share Your love with the world.
But sometimes, in our zeal, we forget to follow Your example. We rely on our own efforts instead of YOUR PROVISION.
Our ambitions cloud our judgement, and we try to use WORLDLY means to achieve SPIRITUAL ends.
Forgive us Father. We only want to honor You.
Cleanse us of our reliance on THINGS and our MATERIALISTIC way of thinking.
We pray that you make our motives pure and that we use only methods that are approved by You.
Cleanse us of all ambition, and use us as instruments of YOUR Love and Grace.
In Jesus' Name we pray. Amen.

Being a Christian is not as hard as some might think.
There are only three essential steps. Some call it the ABC's of Salvation.

A. Admit you have done wrong.

Who HASN'T done things they're ashamed of?
"For all have sinned and fall short of the
glory of God." (Romans 3:23)

B. Believe in Jesus.

Now, this one may be hard for a lot of people.
Mainly because so many well-meaning Christians
have ruined Jesus' image.
But JESUS said " Follow ME"--he never said
"follow My FOLLOWERS."
Unfortunately, many Christians are filled with
hate. That offends God because he has COMMANDED
us to LOVE ONE ANOTHER. (John 13:34)
God is full of love, and wants to SAVE US FROM
OURSELVES. He wants to save us from fear and
doubt and the finality of death.
All we have to do is TRUST him.
"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)

C. Confess and leave your sin behind.

God is SO LOVING that, no matter how bad or
how frequently we have sinned, confessing sins
to God (not a priest) and a SINCERE desire to
STOP sinning makes us FREE from punishment!!
THAT'S RIGHT!! God does NOT WANT to punish
ANYONE. He would PREFER that we turn from our
evil ways and AVOID punishment.
"'For I take no pleasure in the death of
anyone,'declares the Sovereign LORD. 'Repent
and live!'" (Ezekiel 18:32)
"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just
and will forgive us our sins and purify us from
all unrighteousness" (1 John 1:9)

It's Easy
It's not hard to please God. Just admit you're not perfect. Admit you don't know everything, and admit you make mistakes. That's not so hard, is it?
God wants to help us but he won't FORCE us to ask for it. He gave us FREE WILL.
