Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly. (Matthew 11:28-30)
Jesus is interested in having a close, personal relation with you and the first step in creating this relationship with Him is to introduce yourselves.
So as a spokesman for Jesus, He says hi, my name is Jesus Christ. I’m actually a cool Guy and I’m after a one to one relationship with you. I know all about you and would like to say, don’t worry about your life; I accept you just the way you are. In fact, I died for you the way you are (Romans 5:8). I know this will not make sense to you right now but this one thing I promise you; if you lean on Me and let Me do the leading, you’ll start to understand Me better and your life will never be the same again.
So now that I’ve introduced myself, this is what you need to do to enter a relationship with me. Like I said, I know all about you so you don’t really have to introduce yourself. All you need to do is say this simple prayer out loud:
My name is [say your name]
I believe that You died for me and that You rose again from the dead to pay the price for my sins. (Romans 10:9-10).
Jesus, I ask You to come into my heart and be my Lord and Saviour (Romans 10:13). Fill me with the Holy Spirit.
I thank You for hearing my prayer and coming into my heart and saving me according to Your word. I love You and I ask You to seal me in your blood and help me to live for You all the days of my life.
In Jesus name, Amen
That’s it. We are now friends and I now live in you in the person of the Holy Spirit. Now, ask me and I will start to reveal these three things to you; 1) what you’ve just done; 2) What it means; 3) What’s next?
