You remember that God loves you so much and wants to be your Heavenly Father and have you live with Him in Heaven someday. But your sin separates you from Him. That's why He sent His Son, the Lord Jesus to die on the cross for you.
The Bible says, "But as many as received Him (the Lord Jesus), to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name." (John 1:12) That means that if you believe with all your heart that Jesus died for you and rose again and receive Him by inviting Him to come and take away your sins, He will make you a part of God's forever family - God will become your Heavenly Father right now, and someday you will share God's home with Him in Heaven.
Have you ever believed and received the Lord Jesus so you could become God's child?
I'm not talking about whether you attend church or have been baptized or if your parents are Christians. Those things are good, but they cannot take away even one sin. He wants you to believe and receive Him.
If you believe that Jesus, God's Son died for your sins on the cross and rose again,
would you tell God right now:
1. that you know you have sinned.
2. that you believe Jesus, God's Son, died for you and rose again.
3. that you are inviting Him to be your Savior and your Heavenly Father.
You could pray something like this:
I know that I have sinned and done wrong against you. I believe that Jesus is God's Son and that He took the punishment for all my sins by dying on the cross. I believe He came back to life again. I receive you now as my only Savior from sin. Thank you for making your child right now as you promised. In Jesus' name, amen.
If you really prayed these words and meant it, God has just made you a part of His forever family! It's not because I said so, But because He promised (remember John 1:12?), and God never breaks His promises.
Let me show you another great promise for you in God's Word. Hebrews 13:5 says, (God is speaking) "I will never leave you, nor forsake you." Will the Lord Jesus ever leave you? He promises, "No." How about if you sin again? No, God says, "I will never leave you." And Hebrews 13:6 says, "The Lord is my helper." He will give you the power to do what is right.
When you become God's child, He wants you to grow to know Him better each day. The last page, the green page, tells you how.
