1.God loves YOU!
God has a plan for your life because He loves you.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16)
Jesus said,”I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10).
2.Sin separates us from God
All of us have done, said or thought things that are wrong. This is called sin, and our sins have separated us from God. “Sin” is walking our own way in rebellion against God’s will. When we walk away from God, we walk away from life.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
Sin brings death. “For the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23).
3.God’s Remedy for Sin – ‘Jesus’
Jesus came to this earth, born of a virgin Mary, lived a sinless life and died on the cross of Calvary for your sins and he rose again on the third day. Jesus Christ died in our place,for our sins.
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” (2 Corinthians 5:17)
“But to all who believed him and accepted him, He gave the right to become children of God.”(John 1:12)
Jesus said “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except by Me.”(John 14:6)
“But the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23)
4.You must repent and ask God for forgiveness.
Admit and confess your sins to God. “He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy” (Proverbs 28:13).
You can choose to ask Jesus Christ to forgive your sins and come in to your life as your Lord and Savior.
• To acknowledge your sins.
• To be sorry for your sins.
• To confess your sins.
• To be willing to forsake your sins.
• To have your life changed by Christ.
Forgiveness is promised. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).
5. Place your trust in Christ and receive Him as your Savior.
Christ is ready. You can receive Him now. “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will go in” (Revelation 3:20).
Receive him now. “Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God” (John 1:12).
“I tell you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life. (John 5: 24)
Pray this prayer:
Lord Jesus, I want to have life. I know that I have sinned. I need Your forgiveness and pardon. I believe that You died and rose again for my sins. I now accept You as my personal Savior. I will forsake my sinful life. I know that Your grace and power will enable me to live for You. Thank You, Jesus, for saving me and for giving me a new life.
Seek a Church
After making your decision to receive Christ, we encourage you to prayerfully seek a local Bible-believing church that will assist you in growing as a new believer.
But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen. —II Peter 3:18
