Webster's Dictionary defines "adventure" as "an exciting or remarkable experience". Sounds like a pretty good definition of what we think about when the word "adventure" is mentioned. There are many adventures in life but today we want to tell you about "life's greatest adventure". It is a lifetime adventure with a distinct beginning that God initiates on our behalf. So what does "Life's Great Adventure" have to do with God? Good question. We have the answer. But first, we want to tell you about the one true and living God and who He is. He consists of three distinct persons, separate yet inseparable. God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ), and God the Holy Spirit. How do we know this? The Bible states in John 1:1 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning." The "Word" in these verses refer to the person of Jesus Christ as explained by John in Chapter 1, verse 14 which states "The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth."
Now let's talk about the "Great Adventure" and how it relates to God. Life's great adventure is knowing God's purpose for your life and then living it to the utmost. Think about it, many people go through life searching for purpose and meaning, yet a feeling of emptiness still resides deep within. Sometimes this feeling of emptiness exists because of unanswered questions like:
If you know God, the answers to these questions are available to you. Imagine knowing the answers, what an adventure life then becomes. It is an adventure that has a definite beginning with God and continues every day. The apostles Peter and Andrew were brothers making a living as fisherman on the Sea of Galilee when Jesus said to them "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men". These two brothers responded to the call of Jesus and discovered God's purpose for their life. So how do you come to know God's purpose for your life? By first coming to know God. God wants to share his thoughts with you and that is why knowing God is essential to finding out what your purpose in life is all about. Did you know that God loves you absolutely and completely? The Bible states in John Chapter 3, verse 16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life". Your reading this presentation right now is evidence of Godís great love for you! Will you respond to the call of God and become a part of His family? You may be thinking "Can I actually become a part of God's family? The answer is "Yes" if you are willing to accept what God has to say about your present condition and need. As a family member, God can put true meaning and direction in your life. Please read the following bible verses and let the truth of God's Word reveal to you your present condition and the need that you have. God has already prepared the way. Discover the gift of God that is waiting for you.
Do you now see your present condition as a sinner (lost and deserving of hell because you have sinned against a Holy God)? Do you see your need for a Savior ? Do you believe that Jesus (God's Son) died for your sins and was raised to life on the third day and is patiently waiting on you to call upon Him for salvation? Do you believe Jesus is the only way to be saved? Are you willing to turn from whatever you have been trusting in and put your faith and trust in Jesus alone. If so, cry out to the Lord Jesus in prayer, confessing to him that you are a sinner and ask Him to save you. Following is a prayer you can use if it expresses you innermost thoughts or use your own words. Remember it is Jesus that saves.
If you prayed to Jesus (God's Son) realizing that you are a sinner in need of a Savior asking Him to save you, according to God's Word you are now and forever a part of Godís family. Now and forever is a long time, in fact it is infinity. How can we be so sure about this? Refer to our page entitled "Assurance" because God has some things to speak to you about on this very subject out of His Word the Bible. Please send us an e-mail so that we may rejoice in your decision to accept Jesus as your personal Lord & Savior. Don't forget to read the First Steps page which will give you directions on how to grow spiritually and become what God wants you to be. This is the Great Adventure!
If you were unable to pray a prayer similar to the one listed above because you still have some questions about what you read, donít feel alone, send us an e-mail with your questions and we will respond. Several of the people involved with the content of this site had questions that needed to be answered before they committed their lives to Jesus.
