Nobody Ever Told Me How to Have a Good Day (#73)
Bible version used: NIV
“Have a good day,” she said cheerfully as I left the store. At the time I wondered exactly what I was supposed to do in order to have a good day.
It wasn’t until I visited my friend’s church that I found out HOW to have a GOOD DAY. Here is what I discovered:
Understand GOD’S PLAN. God wants you to have a meaningful life on earth and eternal life in heaven.
Jesus said: I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10
Admit YOUR NEED. All of us have sinned, and sin keeps us from the life God wants for us.
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23
Accept GOD’S PROVISION. God loves you so much that he sent his only Son, Jesus, who came to earth, lived a perfect life, died on the cross taking the penalty for your sin, and rose again.
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still
sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
REPENT. Jesus paid the price so that you could be forgiven of your sin and experience the life that God wants for you. But you must respond to God’s provision before it will do you any good. You need to turn from your life without God, admit your need for him, and trust him.
“The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!” Mark 1:15
