3. Christ's Life Inside

CrucifixionCome to Jesus' life and receive the new faith in him. Jesus Christ is knocking now, asking to come into your heart. Do you have the Christ-life inside or outside? Will you let him in or keep him out? You cannot ignore Christ's invitation forever. Time is fast running out. If you ignore him and reject him now, he will ignore and reject you when we must all stand before him at the Day of Judgment. "I do not know you. Depart from me." But if you are ready, thoughtfully, to open the door of your being to Jesus Christ, then find a place where you can be quiet and alone.

Love for You

Open BibleThink of Christ's love for you: the cross, the shame and pain, his body nailed to the cross, and his blood shed for you. Think of what he saves you from, eternal destruction, separation from God forever, which is what hell is.

Come Jesus Life

Girl in PrayerThe Christian journey and to discover abundance in Christ changes one profoundly for the better. Think of the shortness of this life. After death, there will be no more opportunities to turn to Christ. It will be too late. Think of Jesus Christ knocking now, asking to come into your life. You want him to come into your life, or perhaps you want to make sure he has come into your life. It might help you say this prayer, phrase by phrase, quietly, thoughtfully, thinking carefully about what you are saying and what you are doing.

Faith Prayer

Knocking"Lord Jesus Christ, I know I have sinned in my thoughts, words, and actions. There are so many good things I have not done. There are so many sinful things I have done. I am sorry for my sins and turn from everything I know to be wrong." "You gave your life upon the cross for me. Gratefully I give my life back to you. Now I ask you to come into my life. Come in as my savior to cleanse me. Come in as my Lord to control me. Come in as my Friend to be with me. And I will serve you all the remaining years of my life in complete obedience." Amen.

Discover Life in Christ

DaybreakYou have said this prayer and meant it. What you have said is a fact. You have asked Jesus Christ to come into your life, and he has come in. He now lives in your heart by his Holy Spirit. You have discovered life in Christ.

Not Just Feelings

DiscoveryDon't rely on your feelings; you may not feel any different at the moment. Trust Jesus' sure promises as in Revelation 3.20, "If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, l will come in to him." John 6.47 adds, "Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life." Matthew 28.20 says, "And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Because of this discovery of life in Christ, you are now a member of God's Kingdom, a child of God's family. You are part of his body, the church - all who trust in Jesus, whatever their color, background, or intellect.

The Christian Life

TombstoneBeing part of the Christian life with others is essential for those who love the Savior and serve him faithfully. You have begun the journey into life. You are now at the start of a new Christian experience. In Jesus Christ, you have an all-powerful, ever-present friend and savior, but in Satan, a cunning and strong enemy. So you need to grow strong as a Christian. You need food, air, exercise, and you need to be a part of the Christian life with other Christians. Here are the four essentials of the Christian life.


The Bible is the Christian's food. It is a living book, and through it, God will speak to you. Feed on Christ daily. Read it every day.


Prayer is the Christian's air. Talk to Jesus Christ naturally as to a close friend, yet respectfully remembering who he is. Spend time alone with Christ daily.


Join a local church and worship with them at once to get your exercise. Never miss being with Christians in church on Sunday.


Tell one other person about Jesus within the next twenty-four hours, and what you have done, that you have surrendered your life to Christ. Don't be ashamed to be known as a Christian at work and home.
