Make a Commitment to Jesus
Time is getting short

Whether you are Catholic or Protestant, if you have never made a serious commitment to Jesus then we want to invite you to do that. It is very simple to do but it requires absolute abandonment. It is not important the exact words you say, it is more important that you have the right attitude. The attitude is one of complete surrender.

What I (Hugh) said was:

"Jesus, could you please come into my life? Take my heart, take my health, take my circumstances, take everything about me. I am yours."

Repentence is critical. Here's the sinner's prayer:

"Lord have mercy on me, a sinner" (Lk 18:13)

"To be a Christian, one must believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God (cf. Acts 8:37, 1 Jn 2:23)."

- Catechism of the Catholic Church, par. 454

Please let us pray for you:

"Oh Lord thank you for bringing this child of yours to the point where they are now. Please give them the gift of complete abandonment now. Fill them up with your Holy Spirit, let them breathe the air of your presence."

If you have just surrendered to Jesus, then you have experienced what Catholics call a "Second Conversion" (Catechism 1428).

1428 Christ's call to conversion continues to resound in the lives of Christians. This second conversion is an uninterrupted task for the whole Church who, "clasping sinners to her bosom, [is] at once holy and always in need of purification, [and] follows constantly the path of penance and renewal." This endeavor of conversion is not just a human work. It is the movement of a "contrite heart," drawn and moved by grace to respond to the merciful love of God who loved us first.

This is what should of happened at confirmation, but often happens later in life. Evangelicals call this experience being "Born Again" which is a also good word for it. My prayers are with you.

What should I do next?

If you are not a Catholic we suggest that you ask Jesus what he would have you do next. We trust He will guide you. Ask him where he wants you. Ask him to surround you with believers. Ask him to guide you to the church that He would have you attend. We believe the answers will come if you sincerely ask. We encourage you to read the Bible every day and ask Jesus to guide your every step. Jesus led me to the Catholic Church. Perhaps that will be where your road will lead also. If it does, I hope to meet you some day. I put that in God's hands. May God bless you and keep you until that time.

If you are a Catholic

We encourage you to return to Church, ask the Priest to make a confession, reconcile with the Church, and to return to the sacrament of the Eucharist where we experience the fullness of Jesus in the flesh. We encourage you to spend time in the Bible and to begin each day with prayer and meditation and ask him to be with you and guide you through each day. Here are 20 characteristics of a faithful Catholic.
