How to live a Christ-like life Lesson 1


This is the first lesson based on the outline that I previously post.  I hope that you took the time to go over the outline and have read the scriptures.




1.      Give your life to God by accepting Jesus – John 3:16 and Romans 10:9-13



Jesus gave up Heaven, came to earth and on purpose took the sins of mankind.  He knew that everyone would not accept Him, but He came anyway.  Because He took on sin, He was separated from His Father. God and sin cannot associate with each other and Jesus knew that, but came to earth and took all the sins that had been committed and the ones that would ever be committed.  His love for us is so strong that He wanted to be sure that we would have the opportunity to be reconnected with God. Likewise, God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to save us. That connection would give us the right to eternal life.  It also gave us the right to live a blessed, favored, holy life.  Salvation is so simple to achieve, but we make it seem hard. “ Well, if you want to be saved you have to do this and that and so on and so on”….NO…all we have to do is believe in our hearts that Jesus is the Son of God, and confess Him with our mouths.

After you give your life to Jesus, pray and ask God to lead you to a Bible believing, Bible teaching, Christ-centered church where you can learn the word of God and how to live the awesome life that Jesus died for you to have. Get a Bible and go over the scripture and lessons at home that you heard in church.

Also, remember that anything you need to clean up in your life, give to Jesus.  The closer you get to Him, the farther you will get from the sin that tries to take hold of us.  Don’t allow anyone to condemn you for the things you still have in your life.  God knows what you need and will help you in every area of your life.

This blog post has been festering lately.  I have lots to say, but don't know how to say it.  Mainly, I want to say it with grace and conviction.  I worry that I won't do that properly, but I feel like this needs to be shared.


I don't support teen dating because I was a teen dater.
I wish it …

Self-Confidence

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made, Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.

Self-Confident: believe in oneself or one's own abilities
In one's own powers, judgment, etc.


In everything we do, we should have confidence in ourselves. God builds us up to love ourselves and to know that everything we do He gave us the gift to do it. Don’t allow anyone to put you down and say things like, you will never accomplish anything in life. Or you are just wasting your time. Nobody is going to see any good in that. In spite of what people say about you, you need to know you can do anything you set your mind to do. Have confidence in yourself and knock down all the negative things that come your way.

Hold your head up high and allow people to see what God sees in you. Don’t walk in fear wondering about where life will take you in the future. Live for today and God will help you with the rest. Treat yourself right and own your lif…
