The Life-or-Death Choice

By Greg Laurie

 

 

LISTEN  

 

 

“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”

—John 10:10

 

 

According to a report by the American Psychological Association, 91% of Generation Z (those born within the period from 1997 to 2012) have high levels of anxiety and stress.

 

I think one of the reasons that things are harder for Generation Z is that many in this generation come from broken homes. In addition, violence has escalated and, of course, social media amplifies everything and has changed things dramatically.

 

One-third of those in Generation Z also struggle with suicidal thoughts. To those who have contemplated or even attempted suicide, I want you to know this: You are loved. You’re loved by more people than you could ever imagine. You are wanted. And God has a special plan for your life. You matter, and we need you.

 

Whatever you’re going through, you’ll get through it. Don’t ever let the devil whisper in your ear that you should take your life. The Bible says that the devil is a liar, the father of lies (see John 8:44). Jesus said, speaking about Satan, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy” (John 10:10 NKJV).

 

In contrast, Jesus also said, “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” (verse 10 NKJV). You have a choice: life in a relationship with God or death outside of a relationship with God.

 

I don’t know the trajectory of your life today or what decisions you have made. But it’s never too late to change. It’s not a matter of changing the way you feel. You need to change the way you think.

 

Would you like to have a fresh start right here, right now? If you turn from your sin and put your faith in Jesus, He will come into your life and change your eternal destination from Hell to Heaven. He can change the course of your life, starting today.

 

====================================

 

John 3:16

King James Version (KJV)

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Scripture Prayers of Salvation

 Pray the following out loud:

 

John 3:16 … Thank You Lord for loving me so much that You gave Your one and only Son, that when I believe in Him I will not perish but have eternal life. I believe in Jesus with my heart and I ask you to forgive me of all my sins. I renounce satan and all his works and ways, I choose the truth and disavow satan and all his lies. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord.

 

Romans 10:9-10 … Thank You Lord that when I confess with my mouth Jesus as Lord, and believes in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved. I believe in my heart and accept You as Lord. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord.

Psalm 42:1-2 … Thank You Lord that You will create within me a hunger, a longing, for You and Your will. Set my heart flames a fire in love with you. Reveal yourself to me. Make me to love you as you love me. In the name of Jesus Christ.

Dear Jesus . . .

Prayer:

Dear Jesus (Yahshua):

All that I am is Yours. I surrender to You now. All that I have is Yours. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins against you! Please wash them away with the blood that You shed for me at the cross! Nail my sin and selfishness to the cross! I repent Lord! Create in me a clean heart oh God, and renew the right spirit within me! Cast me NOT away from thy presence and take NOT thy Holy Spirit from me! Forgive me of all my sins! I want to be covered and protected! I want to go to heaven instead of hell! I believe and speak with my mouth that You died for my sins at the cross at Calvary, and was buried. I believe that You took my sins to hell and rose from the dead on the third day. I believe that You now sit at the right hand of my Father in Heaven. I believe that You alone are the Savior of the world! I believe that You are my Savior! You are the one and only true Messiah! I renounce satan and all his works and ways!

 

I choose the “truth” and disavow satan and all his lies! I make You my Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ (Yahshua HaMashiach)! This is something that only You can do, so take my heart and cleanse it of all unrighteousness! Purify me and don't stop till I go to heaven to live with You forever! You are faithful! I give You my heart, mind, body, spirit and soul! All that I have is yours! Come into my heart and live within me! I want to reflect your Spirit! I want to be like You! I was made in your image! Here I am . . . I surrender my life to You! Fill me with Your Spirit! Lead and guide and direct my path! I ask You for your grace to be an overcomer and finish the race You have called me to run!  Thank You for Your lovingkindness! Thank You for drawing me close to You! Thank You Father God! In the name above all names I pray, Yeshua (Jesus)! Amen!

1 Thess 4:14

14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

KJV

John 3:16-18

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

KJV

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
