Deciding to believe in Jesus is an important decision, and one only you can make.
The bottom line is that God loves you. God, through His Son, Jesus, wants to have a lifelong relationship with you. He wants to give you salvation, purpose, hope and eternal life.
So, where do you start? Let’s look at the problem and why you need Jesus.
Scripture states clearly everyone in the world is guilty of sin - that includes you and me.
Romans 3:23 says: 'For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.'
Romans 6:23 tells us 'For the wages of sin is death.' The wages of our work is money but the wages of sin is death. Death means separation from God forever.
But there’s good news…
Even though we are sinners, Jesus loves us so much that He died in our place to pay for our sin.
Romans 5:8: 'But God demonstrated His own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.'
To become a Christian and have assurance of eternal live you must repent of your sin and put your faith in Jesus. This is a personal decision only you can make.
Romans 10:9 says: 'If you confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.'
The word ‘believe’ here means to entrust your life completely to Jesus. That’s real faith! Entrusting and submitting to the Lordship of Jesus for the forgiveness of your sin, by which you will receive eternal life in Him.
Just pray this prayer.
'Dear Jesus, I believe You died for me and that Your blood paid for my sins. Please forgive me for my sin. I entrust my life over to You as Lord. Thank You for dying for me, forgiving my sin and giving me the gift of eternal life. I turn away from sin today and submit to You as my Lord and Saviour. Lead and guide me in Your way. Amen.'
