How to receive Jesus Christ into your life?
- Admit you are a sinner and need forgiveness.
When Adam sinned in the Garden of Eden, his sin separated him from God. Now all of his descendants inherited the curse of sin and death (Romans 5:12-14; Psalm 51:5). As a result every human being is born a sinner. It is therefore necessary to become saved.
- Repent of your sins.
To repent simply means to “change one’s mind or direction; to have a change of heart.” Repentance does not mean “I’m sorry.” It is a decision to ask for forgiveness of your sins and to be cleansed from unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).
- Confess Jesus as your Lord and Savior.
Confession is asking forgiveness. And to believe that Jesus is the Son of the living God, and He is your Lord and Savior and He lived, died and was raised from the dead for the forgiveness of your sins.
If you are ready to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, and the assurance of eternal life-here is a suggested prayer…..
Heavenly Father, I recognize and admit that I am a sinner. I repent of my sins and asking forgiveness. I confess with my mouth and believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God and He died for my sins. I believe that Jesus lived, died, buried and was raised from the dead for my salvation. Today I receive Jesus as my Lord and my Savior into my heart. And I thank You for saving me this day. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
If you have decided to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you are now born again and your name is in the book of life. Here are a few things that will help you to grow as a Christian.
prayer is talking to God. It’s important to spend time talking to Him every day, the more the better (Philippians 4:6).
READ THE BIBLE
The Bible is God’s Word to man. The more you read it and apply to your life, the more you’ll fall in love with Him (1 Peter 2:2).
You need to have friends who share your beliefs and who can encourage you. This is why it’s so important to find a Bible-believing, Bible teaching church where you can meet other Christians (Hebrews 10:24-25).
What is water Baptism?
Water baptism is a symbolic representation of Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection. Just as He was baptized, you must be baptized (Matthew 3:13). Your entrance into the water represents the death of your former lifestyle (Romans 6:3-11) and your emergence from the water represents your new life in Christ.
Share your faith in Jesus Christ with others (Matthew 28:18-20).
God bless you, and we pray that you continue to grow closer to the Lord every day!
