Claim CHRIST as our SAVIOUR
We are Christian officially,
Having gone through the rites of baptism and confirmation,
But have we personally claimed a relationship with CHRIST?
Have we initiated a personal conversation of friendship?
Have we told HIM: Iím happy and proud, JESUS, that you are my GOD!
Rather, have we kept Him, with respect, at a distance?
Also, have we consulted and trusted HIM with all our cares?
Have we asked HIM for counsel or enquired about HIS will for us?
In other words, do we regard HIM as GOD and personal friend!
Do we see ourselves as weak and sinful
And declare that we are grateful for our salvation
By HIS atonement for our sins?
Do we acknowledge HIS omnipotent power as a HOLY, RIGHTEOUS GOD
And obey HIS commandments?
Do we really love HIM for HIMSELF,
And welcome HIM into our heart,
Adore, worship, and trust HIM
Are we comfortable with HIS closeness?
Can we walk with HIM, talk to HIM,
Knowing that HE will work all things for our good?
CHRIST will draw close to us
When we draw close to HIM!
To experience His comfort, HIS loving kindness
We must give HIM access to
Our soul, heart and mind,
We must communicate with HIM
Through praise, prayer and worship!
Be warm and open in our relationship with JESUS
As we do our intimate friends!
Ask for HIS grace
HIS strength of steadfast faith
HIS enduring power of loving forgiveness
HIS illumination of Christian values through the BIBLE
Ask CHRIST to be your personal Saviour and companion through life,
Ask HIM for the grace of obedience to HIS commandments
Ask HIM to convict you of sin when you go wrong and help in your repentance
Ask HIM for wisdom and the power of moral and spiritual discernment
Ask HIM to strengthen and uplift you and your loved ones in times of trial and temptation
Ask HIM for courage and perseverance in times of tribulation
Ask HIM for the fulfilment of all HIS BIBLICAL PROMISES in your life.
When we love CHRIST with devotion, we begin to understand
HOW GREAT HE IS
HOW GOOD HE IS
HOW life itself and every intelligence, ability, talent we possess
IS derived from HIM
We begin to realise how much we depend on HIM
That, in ourselves, we are NOTHING.
That we owe HIM everything
That we are limited, weak and vulnerable
That our LORD GOD is omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent
Therefore, let us look up to HIM, praise and worship HIS ALMIGHTY POWER
And HIS LOVING KINDNESS.
Let us stand at the foot of the HOLY CROSS with awe and gratitude
The symbol of the GREATEST LOVE, given freely
By a HOLY, LOVING GOD
For undeserving mankind!
