A - Admit that you are
A relationship with Jesus Christ begins with your admission
that you need God. You must admit you need God to do three things:
- You need God to forgive you of your sins, those attitudes
or actions that don't meet God's standards.
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves
and the truth is not in us.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins
and to cleanse us
from all unrighteousness.
1 John 1:8-9
- You need God to give you eternal life.
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is
eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
- You need God to show you His purpose for your life.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they
might have it more abundantly. John 10:10
B - Believe that Jesus
died for your sins and rose from the dead.
The penalty for your sin is death. God loves you so
much that He provides a way for you to escape that penalty.
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.
Jesus can and will save anyone from an eternity without
God. He died and rose again for your justification, to right your relationship with God.
Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.
Belief in the death and resurrection of Jesus for your
sins is essential for salvation, but it is not enough.
You believe that there is one God. You do well.
the demons believe and tremble.
C - Confess that Jesus
is the Lord of Your Life!
Confessing Jesus as Lord means to commit total control
of your life to Christ. You give Him the ownership of your life. He becomes your new boss.
If you confess Jesus as Lord
of your life, the Bible says you will be saved.
If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus
believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead,
you will be saved.
The following prayer is one you can use to confess Jesus
as Lord and ask Him to save you:
Dear God, I admit I am a sinner in need of you. Please
forgive me of my sins and give me abundant life here on earth and eternal life with you in heaven. I believe Jesus died and
rose again for my sins. I confess Jesus as Lord and Savior of my life. Thank you for saving me. In Jesus' name, Amen.
If you prayed the above prayer,
we would love to hear from you, answer any questions you may have and help you begin your new life with your Savior, Jesus
