I gave My life at the cross for you to have a better life, my beloved. But only you can make the choice to become all I have called you to be. Nothing will change without your effort and obedience to my word. Your choice to let go of your old life and cling to the new life I offer will become the key to your freedom. You will find something far greater than temporary pleasure; you will find everlasting joy, unshakable peace, and renewed passion. This change will not only affect you, but will also make an everlasting impact on those you love.
Your King and your Courage
Call on him now while he is near.
Let the wicked change their ways
and banish the very thought of doing wrong.
Let them turn to the LORD that he may have mercy on them.
Yes, turn to our God, for he will forgive generously. – Isaiah 55:6–7 (NLT)
A Prayer to Change
Chosen of the King! I pray that you will be encouraged by the grace and love that your heavenly Father has extended to you and that you will be compelled by His goodness to turn from sin and walk into the life that He has for you, which is full of peace and joy. May you know God’s redeeming love and His restoring power, and may it be a testimony to everyone you meet. I pray that once you change you will never go back to your old meaningless ways but will see how precious you are to the Body of Christ. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation: the old has gone, the new has come! – 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NLT)
