The Bible says that experiencing forgiveness and beginning a relationship with God is as simple as trusting in Jesus Christ, and confessing your faith in Him.
God's promise to you is that, "if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. " (Romans 10:9)
You were created to know God in a personal way - to have a relationship with Him, through His Son, Jesus Christ. If you're ready to ask Him to take over your life, we want to help you. There isn't a complex process or ritual. God just wants a relationship with you. You may be thinking, how do I actually start a relationship with God?
Realize that you are a sinner.No matter how good a life we try to live, we still fall miserably short of being a good person. That is because we are all sinners. The Bible says, "No one is good - not even one." (PSA 14:3) We cannot become who we are supposed to be without Jesus Christ.
Recognize that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you.The Bible tells us that "God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.". This is the Good News, that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die in our place when we least deserved it.
Repent of your sin.The Bible tells us, "Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord". (Acts 3:19) The word repent means to change our direction in life. Instead of running from God, we can run toward Him.
Receive Jesus Christ into your life.Becoming a Christian is not merely believing some creed or going to church. It is having Christ Himself take residence in your life and heart. Jesus said, "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me." (Rev 3:20 )
If you would like to have a relationship with Christ, simply pray this prayer and mean it in your heart.
"Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life. I confess You as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank You for saving me. Amen."
If you prayed this prayer, we would like to know about it, and pray for you, and we would like to send you a Bible, and offer assistance in finding a church, if you would like help.
