Change Your Life

“I want to change my life!” The first thoughts that come to mind are big life shifts involving your health, habits or relationships. These changes largely feel impossible (especially after repeated failures) but even small adjustments are really tough.

So why do you want to change your life? Have you struggled to rewrite your story? Do you know you’re on the wrong track but can’t steer away from it? Most of us have arrived at this same point in our lives—even major figures in the Bible. The Apostle Paul said, “I don’t really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do what I hate” (Romans 7:15).

Change Your Life

Does this mean you can’t change? Absolutely not, but you’ll need some help and God may already be at work. Could He be leading you to make a change? The first step is to understand God wants your life to be better. He doesn’t want you stuck in failure or trapped in sin.

God’s plan for you is always the best plan. The Bible says, “God’s way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true” (Psalm 18:30). He loves you and this is why He wants what is best for you.

Change Your Destiny

There’s something much larger at stake though because the Bible reminds us life is short. “Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone” (James 4:14).

God can change your life for the better, but that’s just the beginning. If you seek Him and His will for your life, He can change your destiny. Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life” (John 5:24).

God wishes to bring you closer to Him in your daily life but His ultimate plan is focused on your destiny. Do you know your destiny? Will you spend eternity in heaven or hell? God wants to free you from your sin and live forever with you in heaven.

Are you ready to let God change your life and your ultimate destiny?

Step 1 – God’s Purpose: Peace and Life

God loves you and wants you to experience peace and eternal life.

The Bible says:

"We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ."
Romans 5:1

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life."
John 3:16

"I [Jesus] have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly."
John 10:10

What keeps us from having the life God planned for us?

Step 2 – The Problem: Our Separation from God

God created us in His image. He gave us a will and the freedom of choice; we choose to disobey Him and go our own way—which is called sin. This separates us from God.

The Bible says:

"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
Romans 3:23

"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Romans 6:23

Our choice to sin separates us from God. People have tried many ways to bridge this gap between themselves and God.

The Bible says:

"There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death."
Proverbs 14:12

"But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear."
Isaiah 59:2

No bridge reaches God... except one.

Step 3 – God’s Bridge: The Cross

Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose from the grave. When He did He paid the penalty for our sin and bridged the gap between us and God.

The Bible says:

"For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus."
1 Timothy 2:5

"For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God."
1 Peter 3:18

God has provided the only way back to Him. You must make a choice.

Step 4 – Our Response: Receive Christ

We must trust and receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

The Bible says:

"Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God."
John 1:12

"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

Which side are you on? The side with Christ or without Him?

Here is how you can accept Christ into your life:

We suggest a prayer like this one:

"Dear God, I know I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen."
