Many things bind us: self-interest, addictions, broken relationships, anger and bitterness, destructive pasts, debts, or unforgiveness.  Sin captures our minds and hearts, separating us from God.
Only a miracle can break those bonds!
The Answer – THE CROSS (Miracle)
God’s love bridges the gap of separation between God and You.  When Jesus died on the cross and rose from the grave, it was to pay the penalty for your sins.  Jesus breaks the things that binds us and gives us new life.  This new life gives us the freedom to serve God and become the person you were created to be.
The Bible reminds us that “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name” (John 1:12).  And there’s more Good News!  God can help you repair other relationships, too.
Jesus has promised to make us free from all bondage (John 8:36).
To begin a personal relationship with God and to experience His freedom, here is a good starting place:
1.  Acknowledge your need for God and His forgiveness.  Be honest to say “I have done wrong things, living on my own terms.
2.  Repent of your sins.  That means turn around and go the other way.  God’s way.
3.  Believe and confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and that God raised him to life again.
4.  Give control of your life to Jesus.  That’s how you make him, “Lord.”  The bible says, “Whoever calls upon the name of the
     Lord will be saved”  (Romans 10:13).
Here is a suggested prayer – read it first and then pray it out loud from your heart.
Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and need your forgiveness.  I believe you died for my sins.  I turn to you and invite you, right now, into my life.  Let your freedom and peace enter my heart.  Make me new.  I want to trust and follow You as my own Lord and Savior.
  In Jesus’ name. Amen.
