Now you act on the information you have gathered and the tentative relationship you are experiencing (or for long-time church members you may be thinking that there may be more than what you have always settled for). Now you tell God you want a relationship with your Creator, your Savior, your Comforter and you are willing to make changes with God's help. If you can, tell God you acknowledge God's place as number one in your life and your belief that Jesus died for your sins so you accept forgiveness for your sins and that when you leave this world, you will go to live with God in heaven.
What if you are not completely sure about all that right now? It does not seem to be a good idea to lie to God to try to get into heaven. You are right, God knows all about you so lying to God is pointless and silly because it is just us who gets confused about what is true. But here is the really amazing part to me: God accepts you where you are and helps you grow in faith. God does not expect you to know everything or get everything completely right on the day you accept God's salvation. God just wants you to give your tender broken heart to be healed.
So whether you have rarely ever spoken spoken to God or are a regular prayer who is beginning to think there is a deeper relationship possible than you have known before, speak to God today a prayer something like this--or whatever God leads you to do:
God, my Father, I need something more in my life and I believe You are that more. I'm not sure what to do or say, but You know the deepest longings of my heart and you know all the confusion and limits I have. Teach me to be what You want me to be. I trust you and I promise to keep talking to you and learning to listen to you. I believe this can happen because Jesus promised and sends the the Holy Spirit to guide and teach me. Amen.
* Ephesians 6:10-18
