Many people spend their whole lives looking for purpose! They try to find meaning through things, other people, jobs, religion, philosophy and even through just being a good person. But it always seems to end up at the same place, emptiness!

Many people have never invited Jesus Christ to come into their life, consequently they are never truly able to answer the “Why am I here?” question.

The truth is we are here to experience God’s love, His plan for our lives, and life (true life) abundantly.

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

John 10:10 (The Message)
Jesus said I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of.

Does anyone care?

When life is lived out without God, it always seems empty and that no one cares.

But, God deeply cares for you

Romans 5:8
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

God cares

He offers us forgiveness:

1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

He offers a relationship:

John 1:12
Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God

Revelation 3:20
Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in.

Connect with God

Connecting with God is much like having a conversation with a good friend! You can talk to God anytime, anywhere, and about anything. You won’t surprise God. The most important thing to tell Him, is that you need Him to be a part of your life-that you are ready to have a relationship with him. Your conversation (prayer) to Him might go something like this:

God, I realize that I have neglected you and have tried to deal with life all on my own, but today I admit that I need you. Please forgive me for trying to play God and pretend you don’t exist. I ask you to forgive my mistakes and failures (my sins) and I invite you to come into my life. I commit to finding out more about you and living like you want me to live. In Jesus name, Amen.

Let us know that you have prayed this prayer! We would like to celebrate with you and send you some material to help you grow and a Bible if you don’t have one.
