If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior you can receive Him into your heart and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life. If you are sincere you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesn’t have to be word for word): “God, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”
Christians who have been given the Holy Spirit have the opportunity to be walking billboards of God’s existence and wisdom. People watch and take notice of a Christian's behaviour. Whether they mock us for being naive when we patiently trust in God through trials or commend us for our generous and loving attitudes, they do see. Whether they laugh at us for controlling our human impulses or stare in amazement as we find fulfilling peace amidst tragedy, they see. God’s way of life, teachings, Spirit and truth are beneficial. It shows that God knew what He was doing when He inspired men to write the words of the Bible. It shows that we are committed to Him and want to help others get to know Him. Most importantly, we can show that there is an alternative way of life to the one Satan has deceived the majority of people of this world into living (Revelation 12:9; 2 Corinthians 4:3-4). It points people toward the coming Kingdom of God and turns them away from the carnal here and now that has brought so much pain, misery and destruction.
We are not about just sitting and waiting for the Kingdom, but rather about training for living God’s way of life now with every thought and action of our lives. Then the example of peace and comfort that comes along with those changed attitudes and standards will be a witness as to why the Kingdom of God is so sorely needed on this earth
