1. We were created to have a loving relationship with God:
"So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them." (Genesis 1:27) "For I know the thoughts I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope." (Jeremiah 29:11)
2. Everyone has sinned:
"If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us." (1 John 1:8)
3. Sin has separated us from God:
"For You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness, nor shall evil dwell with You." (Psalm 5:4)
4. God sent His Son to pay the price for our sins:
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)
5. You can receive God’s Son, Jesus Christ, in your heart right now by faith:
"…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. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (Romans 10:9-10)
6. When we receive Jesus as our Savior, we enter into everlasting life with Him:
"I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me." (Galatians 2:20)
Lord Jesus, thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I believe God raised You from the dead. I ask You to come into my life and be my Lord and Savior forever. Amen.
If you just prayed that prayer and really meant it, Jesus Christ has now taken residence in your heart! Not only that, but he has forgiven you of all your sin.
The Bible tells us, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). God also promises, “As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us” (Psalms 103:12).
Your decision to receive Christ also means that you are now going to Heaven one day.
That’s a lot to be thankful for! You need to take some practical steps to grow strong spiritually: read the Bible, pray, and go to church.
