God wants to have a personal relationship with YOU!
It is as easy as ABC...
A – Admit to God you are a sinner in need of salvation. We have all done bad things that bring dishonor to the God that created the universe.
Romans 3:10 – “None is righteous, no, not one.” – We are all sinners because no one other than Christ is righteous.
Romans 3:23 – “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” – Because of our sin, we fall short of God’s glory.
Romans 6:23 – “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” – God has given us the best gift for free: eternal life with Him if we accept Him as our Savior.
B – Believe that Jesus is God's only Son who died for your sins and rose from the dead. Because God needs payment for our sins, and because we can offer nothing, a perfect substitution was made. Jesus is the ONLY way for us to enter Heaven.
John 3:16 – “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.” – God’s gift to us was His only Son, Jesus. Believing in Him will give us eternal life.
John 14:6 – “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” – Because of Jesus’ death, we are able to come to the Father.
C – Confess Jesus as your Savior and Lord and turn from those sins. Realizing that I can do nothing to save myself I turn to Jesus, and trust that His sacrifice was and is enough.
1 John 1:9 – “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” – By confessing Jesus as our Savior and turning from our sinful ways, God will forgive us.
Romans 10:9-10 – “Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.” – We must believe and confess with our mouth that Jesus is the risen Lord to be saved.
If you followed these steps, pray this prayer and confirm it in your heart!
Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and I deserve to die and go to hell, but I do believe that you died on the cross for my sin. Right now I am trusting you to be my Savior. Thank you for forgiving my sin and giving me eternal life. Take control of my life and help me to be obedient to the Word of God. Amen.
If you just prayed that prayer, WELCOME to the family of God! We would love to hear from you and pray for your new walk with Christ.
