WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO
“TURN MY FEET TOWARDS CHRIST?”
You are headed in a direction that’s led by your own desires and selfishness. You think that you have your life handled, but no matter how good of a person you try to be, nothing is good enough. There’s a hole in your life that nothing in this world can fill.
Jesus’s death and resurrection has set you free from your old way of life! You can turn and draw closer to Him, give up the way you used to live, and let God use your life to bring Him glory until you join Him in Heaven one day. As you learn more about Jesus, you will want to help others get to know Him too.
NEW TO YOUR FAITH AND WANT TO LEARN MORE?
The Bible says in Romans 10:9 that “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” (NIV). This means crying out to God in prayer, giving control of your life over to Jesus as Lord, and trusting in the resurrecting power of God. Salvation is a gift. There’s nothing in your power that will save you. Ephesians 2:8-9 says “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast” (NIV).
There is no one who is “too far gone” to be saved. And there is no one “good enough” to go to heaven without knowing Jesus. Salvation is a gift God offers to anyone who will accept it and believe. (Romans 2:23, 10:13)
When you follow Jesus, He gives you the Holy Spirit who lives inside you, giving you power over sin and the desire to live for God. If you have given your life over to Jesus, the “seal” or evidence of your salvation is the Holy Spirit at work in you. (Ephesians 1:13)
When you put your faith in God, He saved you because of HIS righteousness & HIS love. You didn’t earn it, it was a gift. And Romans 8:38-39 says that NOTHING can separate you from the love of Jesus. You can mess up, walk away from Him, and start trying to direct your own life, but as soon as you turn back to Him, He’ll always be right there to take you back. (Check out the story of the Prodigal Son in Luke 15. The father represents how God treats us when we return to Him.)
