Everyone struggles to find purpose, answers, and help. Some days we just want to keep our heads above water. We all want to feel we have what it takes.
We also have deeper questions: Why am I here? Is this all there is? Who am I?
Jesus matters because He came to answer our deepest questions. He came to give us purpose for living now
and settle the question of where we will spend eternity.
God, the creator of the universe, has a plan for you and your life. He loves you and wants to help you because He made you on purpose and with a purpose. He knows you need help. He knows you can’t do it on your own. That’s why He sent Jesus.
You don’t have to measure up to some impossible religious standard to know God – you can’t, only Jesus can. Jesus brings meaning and purpose to all the struggles you’re facing. You don’t have to be good enough, clean up your act before you meet Him, or follow some super-spiritual checklist. Come as you are.
If you are ready to meet Jesus, pray this prayer:
“Dear Lord Jesus, I admit that I’ve fallen short. I have sinned and need your forgiveness. I believe that you lived, died, and rose again so that I might be connected to God. I confess you as my Lord and commit my life to you. I give you my past, present, and future. Take my life and use it. I give it to you.”
