If you’re looking to make Jesus the king of your life, you’re taking a major step towards a meaningful and fulfilling life. Jesus is the king of kings and Lord of lords, and having Him as the ruler of your life can bring peace, joy, and purpose.
Here are some steps you can take to make Jesus the king of your life:
Step 1: Recognize Your Need for a King
Before you can make Jesus the king of your life, you need to recognize that you need a king. You should acknowledge that you’re not in control of your life and that living for yourself isn’t bringing you lasting satisfaction.
Step 2: Confess Your Sins
To make Jesus the king of your life, you need to confess any sins that are standing in the way. Confessing means admitting what you’ve done wrong and asking for forgiveness.
James 5:16 says, “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”
When we confess our sins to God, He forgives us through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross.
Step 3: Surrender Your Life to Jesus
Once we’ve recognized our need for a king and confessed our sins, we can surrender our lives to Jesus. This means giving Him control over every area of our lives – our thoughts, actions, relationships, career choices – everything.
Galatians 2:20 says, “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
When we surrender our lives to Jesus, we become a new creation, and He begins to transform us from the inside out.
Step 4: Follow Jesus’ Teachings
To make Jesus the king of your life, you need to follow His teachings. The Bible is filled with wisdom and guidance for how to live a fulfilling life. Reading the Bible regularly and applying its principles to your life can help you grow closer to Jesus.
John 14:15 says, “If you love me, keep my commands.”
Following Jesus’ teachings isn’t always easy, but it’s always worth it.
Step 5: Surround Yourself with Other Believers
Finally, to make Jesus the king of your life, surround yourself with other believers who share your faith. Being part of a community of believers can provide support, accountability, and encouragement.
Hebrews 10:24-25 says, “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”
Being part of a community of believers can help you grow in your faith and keep you accountable in following Jesus’ teachings.
- In conclusion,
Making Jesus the king of your life is a lifelong process. It’s not something that happens overnight – it takes time and effort. But when we make Jesus the ruler of our lives, we experience true joy, peace, and purpose that transcends any temporary pleasure or achievement.
