prayer to invite Christ

your innocent blood,
and was raised from
the dead for the
forgiveness of my

my sins and I turn
from them to follow
you. I invite You into
my life to dwell in my

Lord. I will obey you
for the rest of my life.
Right now I
acknowledge that I am
saved. Thank you for
becoming my Lord
and Savior. I am a

In Him (Jesus) was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines
in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. John 1:4-5
Your word (the bible) is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path. Psalms
- LIGHT = represents purity, truth, that which reveals and provides
understanding and is associated with life source (as in the sun).
- DARKNESS = represents impurity, deception, that which is designed to
obscure, and is associated with absence of life (as in unconsciousness).
2 unchangeable Characteristics we must understand concerning LIGHT
- It's origin is from God.
- It dispels darkness.
The bible teaches that:
Every human is born in a state of spiritual darkness 1. That condition results in hate,
murder, suicide, selfishness, stealing and every evil that is against the nature of love.
The human race was created to love God and to love one another 2. As a result of
spiritual darkness we lost the capacity to love as God intends.
To remedy the dilemma God sent LIGHT to dispel the darkness in the human race 3.
That LIGHT is received through faith in His Son Jesus Christ.
1. Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God
2. Matthew 22:37-39 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the
first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’

filled with darkness.
Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who
follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” John 8:12
The life that Jesus sacrificed on the cross became the light for the entire human race to
escape the darkness of death and enter into life.
And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men
loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. John 3:19
Because of His love God sent His Son into the world to provide deliverance from
every evil way of darkness for those who choose to believe in Jesus.
I (Jesus) have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me
should not abide in darkness. John 12:46
You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of
darkness. 1Thessalonians 5:5
This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that
God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. 1John 1:5
He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now
We all have darkness that separates of from God. The darkness in us is seen
when we do not walk in love towards others.
You can become a child of God and receive the light of Jesus for deliverance from
the works of darkness by believing what is written about Jesus in the bible.
