The Bible says that each person must receive Jesus as personal Lord and Savior through faith. To do this, you must first realize that you are a sinner and repent of (turn away from) your sin. The Bible says, They should repent and turn to God and prove their repentance by their deeds (Acts 26:20).
Receiving Jesus through faith means trusting Him alone as the payment for your sin and surrendering your life to Him. 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. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved (Romans 10:9-10).
If you would like to surrender your life to Jesus Christ, here is a prayer you can pray.
Why not do it right now?
I know I have done things that are wrong. Please forgive me for these sins.
I invite Jesus Christ into my life as my Savior and Lord.
As my Savior, I ask You to save me from the effect of my sins.
As my Lord, I receive You as the center of my life and give You control of it.
Thank you for forgiving my sin and giving me the gift of eternal life with You.
In Jesus’ name I pray,
God’s promise to people who invite Christ into their lives is described in 1 John 5:11-13:
And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.
The Bible says your relationship with God through Jesus Christ can never be taken from you.
My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand (John 10:27-29).
