Rom 8:1 Therefore, now there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, who live and walk not after the dictates of the flesh, but after the dictates of the Spirit.


Something that I have come to realize is that God truely has purposes for our lives that are greater than we could ever imagine.  If we just walk in his will and not our own we can allow God to guide us down the right paths.  Then we'll easily be able to fulfill his purpose for our lives.  However, I know that all of us mess up every once in a while.  (Well OK, maybe more than every once in a while.)  But thankfully God knows our hearts and his grace can cover our mess ups.  He can use all things for good even though their are times that we can't begin to conceive how.  When our would is crashing down on us and we don't know what to do.  God is our answer- he can give us peace if we trust in him.  If you turn to him and pray, it really helps.  Prayer is our open door directly to God.  We can tell him everything that is on our mind (because he already knows).  He can be the one to confide in and our shoulder to cry on.  If you don't have that intimate- personal relationship with God and that inner peace sounds good to you.  All that you have to do is believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross and was raised from the dead to pay for your sins.  If you truely believe that, then you can ask him into your heart through prayer.  
Tell him that you know your a sinner and that you know that has separated you from him.  Tell him that you want a close and personal relationship with him so that he can be the Lord of your life to guide you down the right paths.  Ask him to forgive you of your sins (because we're all sinners, no matter how good of a person we are) and to come into your heart.  Amen. 

If you said that prayer to God and truely meant it then congratulations!  Now hang on and get ready for the only real ride of your life.  Start by telling others that you got saved.  Then find a good church with sound Biblical doctrine to attend.   Do your homework, and read your Bible, that is how you grow your knowledge of Christ.  And Congrats again, you now have everlasting life!
