The Start Of Your New Journey

Discovering your purpose, identity and the life you were created to live and gaining freedom from mental, emotional and spiritual bondage begins with discovering the Creator, God. But who is He and how do we discover Him?

First, know that you were created by God 

We are created beings. But the question is "Who is the Creator?"

There are many religions and cults all around the world with individuals professing to be God, but there's only one true and living God. He is the God of the Bible, God Jehovah. The Bible says, "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them” (Genesis 1:27).

The Bible says, "For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do" (Ephesians 2:10). 

That means you exist for a reason. You have a purpose in life. Contrary to what anyone else says, God designed you as His magnificent work of art. Your life becomes a masterpiece when you surrender it to God.

Second, know that God loves you and wants you to be with Him

The Bible says, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).

God never intended for us to perish. He didn't intend for us to live in sin and die in our sins. He designed us to live in His holy presence, to live in constant fellowship with Him. The earth was created perfect, and so was mankind.

But sin disrupted everything.

Sin entered into this world through the disobedience of the first humans, Adam and Eve according to Genesis chapter 3.

And sin is what separates us from God, causing what is known as "spiritual death" (James 1:14-15; Isaiah 59:2).

However, the Bible says, "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 6:23).

Jesus went to the cross and died for our sins, and offers us salvation through His sacrifice. And now, rather than remaining separated from God and suffering His wrath due to our sins, we can receive forgiveness for our sins and be reconciled to God through Jesus' atonement on the cross!

How do I receive salvation through Christ?

It's simple. The Bible says, "If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved" (Romans 10:9, NIV).

We serve a risen Savior, a living God. He's not a statue or some idol. He's real. And He hears you when you pray. 

To receive salvation through Christ Jesus, all you have to do is believe in your heart that He died for your sins and rose from the grave on the third day as the Bible declares in 1 Corinthians 15:4. After that, you must confess Him as Lord and Savior with your mouth. 

So if you want to receive salvation and be reunited with God in your life, say this prayer:

"Lord Jesus, I believe you died on the cross for my sins and that you rose from the grave on the third day. I accept you as my Lord and Savior. Forgive me for my sins and wash me with your blood. Today, I am yours. Amen."

What now?

When you pray and ask Jesus to come into your heart and be your Lord and Savior, the Bible declares your name is been written in the Lamb's Book of Life:


"However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven” (Luke 10:20, NIV).

"And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life" (Revelation 21:27)

You are now a part of God's family, a part of His Kingdom. He is a Father unto you as it says in Romans 8:15, which says, "So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father” (NLT).

God is your Father. Talk to Him about everything that's in your heart, knowing that He's a "good" father - that He loves you as His child. And like a real father, God will make sure you're taken care of.

Begin to grow in God's Word. Spend time reading the Bible. Attend Bible Study and be taught the Word. Why? Because the more you grow in God's Word, the more your mind is renewed and transformed.

Lastly, stay connected to other Believers. The Bible tells us, "Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near" (Hebrews 10:24-25, NLT).
