I grew up my entire life thinking I was Christian. Gave my life to God when I was 8 and was baptized. Realized I wasn’t really saved when I was pregnant with my first and so rededicated my life to God and got baptized again.
Only to find out, when I was 28 years old having just gotten out of the homeless shelter due to my then-husband abandoning me and the kids, that I STILL wasn’t REALLY, GENUINELY saved.
“What do I have to DOOOOO?” I yelled. I’ve been baptized. I know God is God. I believe Him. What am I doing wrong. How come I’m still not saved?
I was so frustrated as I read John MacArthur’s booklet, Examine Yourself.
Praying, “Lord, I can’t get this right. I can’t accept You, Idk what to do. Help me.” He showed me that the reason I wasn’t a genuine believer is because I had never really made Him LORD of my life.
Think about it for a moment. Is God LORD in your life. Is He your boss?
He wasn’t for me, and I would go out on a limb to say that He’s not for a lot of professing “christians”. We THINK He is, but we still hold onto our baggage. The rooms in our hearts. We store them and don’t let Him in. We must give up absolutely everything in our lives. All our precious idols. All our selfish ambitions. And make HIM king.
Once I did that, life immediately started FEELING better. Little by little I dug out of that pit I was in through the help of my new best friend, Jesus Christ.
Instantly EVERYTHING changed and life was better with Christ.
That’s the inspiration behind these life is better with Christ hand lettering worksheets I have for you today! So let’s get to them!!
Life is Better With Christ Hand Lettering Worksheets
Life is better…life is ALWAYS better with God. There’s absolutely no doubt about that. For me, I’m only sad that I didn’t give my life to Him sooner. I feel like I have so much to make up for and so I run. I run for Him hard and fast. I want to be the absolute best Christian I can possibly be and please Him. He won’t love me any more, I understand that, but I want to bring a smile to His face.
In this world, so much of it makes Him sad and angry. As a collective culture, we’ve strayed so far from Him, and it hurts Him. I see the pain He feels, being so close to Him, seeing things through His eyes instead of my own. I never want to bring Him sorrow. I know that I sin, I mess up, I fail. But I don’t WANT TO. I want to BE perfect in order that I can make Him happy and be like Him.
I will run my guts out till the day I die. While there’s definitely times of resting and relaxing, I want to work hard for Him. Laboring for Him brings me immense joy.
Everything’s changed. He set my heart ablaze for Him and His goodness. I’ve had a taste of life WITH Him and it’s addicting (in a good way). I never want to go back to how I was before…unsaved…unhappy…unfulfilled. No…life is better with Christ.
