Here's what you must do:
- Admit you are a sinner.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (Romans 3:23) Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (Romans 5:12)
If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. (1 John 1:10)
- Be willing to turn from sin (repent).
Jesus said: I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. (Luke 13:5) And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: (Acts 17:30)
- Believe that Jesus Christ died for you, was buried, and rose from the dead.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16) But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners. Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. (Romans 10:9)
- Through prayer, invite Jesus into your life to become your personal Savior.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:10) For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13)
Becoming a Christian is not merely believing in some creed or going to some church. It is having Jesus Christ Himself take residence in your life and heart. Jesus said, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him..." If you would like to have a relationship with Christ, simply pray this prayer and mean it in your heart.
*Dear Heavenly Father, I know I am a sinner. I believe that your Son Jesus died for my sins. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life. I confess Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank You for saving me. In Jesus Holy name I pray. Amen.*
Let us know if you have accepted the free gift of salvation today by putting your faith in Jesus and asking Him to be the Lord of your life!
