Lord Jesus, I come before you, thanking you for counting me to be one in the kingdom. It is not by my deeds but by the great grace through you on the cross. I was nothing before people but by your loving kindness you welcomed me into your kingdom.
Lord for your great love in my life I worship you and I praise you. Praise be to your name forever in all generations to come. Amen...

TRUE LOVE LEADS TO REPENTANCE
In the past God overlooked such ignorance but now He commands all people everywhere to repent as its written in the book of Acts(Acts17:30). In Acts2:14 we read peter's first sermon to a crowd of unbelievers after the death burial and resurrection of Jesus. He said "Therefore let all Israel be assured of this:God has made Jesus whom you crucified both Lorf and Christ I'll Acts2:36 The word that peter spoke moved deeply in the hearts of the crowd and they said, Brothers (peter and other apostles) what shall we do?" When they asked the questino it revealed that they Believed the message.There new belief called for action. Peter told them to repent and be baptized in the name of jesus christ so that there sins may be forgiven and they will recieve the gift of the Holy spirit. Relationally Jesus said we cant serve two masters. When we repent we are saying that it is only Jesus. In God's eyes we are either serving Him or the devil. The devil wants us to serve him and destroy our relationship with God. 11Timothy2:25-26 Those who oppose him he must gently instruct in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth and that they will Come to their senses and edcape from the trap of the devil Who has taken them captive to do his will. Romans2:4 Dont you see how wonderfully kind,tolerant and patient God is with you?Does this mean nothing to you? Cant you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin? Acts3:19 Repent then and turn to God so that your sins may be wiped out that times of reftrshing may come from the Lord. Romans10:9-10 If you confess with your mouth Jessus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the death you will be saved. For its with your heart that you believe and are justified and its with your mouth that you confess and are saved. Confession is speaking of my love for Jesus its my faith in action.
