Rededication

Is Jesus Christ Lord of your life? Why do you think you are not as close to Him as you once were?

God’s purpose

*God wants to reclaim the usefulness of your life and restore the joy of your salvation (John 5:10-11).

*Christ wants to be Lord of all your life. “And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?” (Luke 6:46).

*God wants to cleanse you from sin.

*God wants you to live in fellowship with Him (1 John 1:7).

*God wants to fill you with His Spirit (Ephesians 5:18).

*God will make you acceptable for ministry (2 Timothy 4:11).

Our need

*Often we fail to please God.

*Personal sin hinders fellowship with God. “But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear” (Isaiah 59:2).

*We feel the need for a closer relationship with Jesus (Luke 15:21).

God’s provision

*God is ready to forgive and restore you (1 John 1:9).

*The blood of Jesus will cover sins. “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin” (1 John 1:7).

*Christians will forgive you and welcome you back (Galatians 6:1).

Our response

*Confess your sins (Proverbs 28:13).

*Recommit yourself to the lordship of Jesus Christ (Acts 2:36).

*Yield yourself daily to Jesus Christ and experience the fullness of His life in you (Romans 6:12-13; Galatians 2:20).

*The heart of the matter is lordship! We are reminded that Jesus said, “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me” (Luke 9:23). We must so commit ourselves to Him that reaffirmation will have lasting significance.

My commitment: Lord Jesus, I want to acknowledge my sin and recommit myself to You as Lord. I trust You to provide the strength for me to live for You the rest of my life.
