Parent’s Commitment To Put Jesus Christ First In Your Life
Perhaps you have struggled in some areas of parenting and have come to realize that your struggles are a result of a weak or inconsistent spiritual life. God promises to bless, encourage, and strengthen us as we submit to His lordship in our life.
“The LORD will give strength to His people; the LORD will bless His people with
peace.” Psalm 29:11
Write a prayer to the Lord, committing to put Him first in your life and asking Him to help you
parent the gifts (children) He has given you.
Perhaps you have never surrendered your life to Christ. Know that God loves you
and has provided the way for you to have a relationship with Him. You must simply,
1. Recognize and admit you are a sinner.
Romans 3:23 “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ
Jesus our Lord.”
2. Believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins and that He is the only way for
sinners to be forgiven and reconciled to God.
John 14:6 “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to
the Father except through Me.”
Acts 4:12 “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven
given among men by which we must be saved.”
3. Confess your sins to Jesus and repent (be sorry), asking Him to forgive you.
Acts 3:19 “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so
that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.”
Romans 10:9 “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart
that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
4. Ask Jesus to come into your heart and receive Him as your Savior and Lord.
John 1:12 “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children
of God, to those who believe in His name.”
Repeat the following prayer:
“Lord Jesus, I admit that I am a sinner. I am sorry for my sin. Thank you for dying on the
cross for me and paying the price for my sin. Please come into my heart. Fill me with your
Holy Spirit and help me to be your disciple. Thank you for forgiving me and coming into my
life. Thank you that I am now a child of God and will one day follow you to heaven.” Amen
