One of the main beliefs of Next Generation Ministrys is that Jesus did not come to establish any church or religion, but to create a relationship with God our Heavenly Father. Abba,Padre,Baba,Pater,Father; no matter how we call Him, God is our eternal and everlasting Father and desires nothing else but to hear from you and me His Creation.
One of the shortest yet biggest in meaning verses of the Bible is John Chapter 3 and verse 16:”For God,our Heavenly Father, loved this world and you,whom He made, so much, that He sent Jesus His Son, so that everyone who believes and has Faith in Him, will not die but will have eternal life.” John 3:16 CEV
God made this world and everything in it. The Bible which is His Word (so if it is His Word,that means it is God speaking to us) tells us that He made the world so that He could have someone to have fellowship with; someone who would be able to speak to Him, call Him Father, and someone whom He would love. That is why He made man; Adam and Eve. This world was perfect, until man sinned. There is no place for sin, evil, in God’s Presence, that is why He had to banish Adam and Eve; yet He gave them a promise, of a Messiah, who would come and restore that relationship with Him, so that once again, man could be in the presence of God.
Jesus came to this earth and died on the cross for us so that all our sins could be taken away and we could have that relationship with Abba, Padre, Baba, Pater, our Heavenly Father. All it takes for you and me to have that relationship is to say a prayer inviting our Lord and Saviour Jesus, into our hearts.
If you would like to receive Jesus into your heart all you have to do is
A…Admit that you are a sinner
B…Believe that Jesus died on the cross for you, rose from the dead,and that you believe and trust Him alone for your Salvation.
C…Confess with your mouth, that Jesus is your Lord ,God, and Saviour.
There is no prayer formula, the words you use can be as simple or as long as you desire as long as it comes from your heart… if you are still not sure what or how to say it you can repeat the following:
Dear Jesus, I love you,
I know and believe that you are My Lord.
I believe that you died on the cross for me, and took away my sins,
Come now Jesus and live forever in my heart,
Restore the relationship with God my Heavenly Father,
and be with me always, I pray, Amen.
