Starting a New Life in Jesus
Living for Christ is challenging, but accepting Him is as simple as ABC:
AAcknowledge that you have sinned: “Sin” means “missing the mark.” For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).
B Believe in Jesus: Believing in Jesus is more than just knowing he exists. It is placing total trust and faith in Jesus. Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved (Acts 16:31).
CConfess Jesus as Lord: Confessing Christ means accepting His plan for your life. If you say with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and if you believe in your heart that God has raised Christ from death, you will be saved (Romans 10:9).
Coming to know Jesus begins by telling God that you have failed to live up to His standards and need His help. You can receive Christ right now by faith through prayer. Prayer is simply talking with God. Here is a suggested prayer:
Lord Jesus, I want to know you personally. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving me of my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be.
If these words express the desire of your heart, pray this prayer right now, and Christ will come into your life as He promised.
