Long ago, I met a friend. His name is Jesus. I knew of Him. But, I never knew how wonderful and truly magnificant He is. I am going to post another article to tell you my story. The story of how I truly came to know Him as more than just a story book character but, as the savior of my life. A real God whose Son is truly the savior of the world. I hope that you will take time to let him be the savior of your world. You can start here. Look for my testimony soon. I hope that it will be a blessing to all who read.
God’s gift of salvation. The response to God’s call is explained in these simple steps found in God’s Word:
1) Admit you are a sinner and turn away from your sin.
Acts 3:19 says: “Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.”
Repent literally means “a change of mind that results in a change of action.” To repent, then, means to admit you are a sinner. You change your mind to agree with God that you are a sinner. The resulting “change in action” is, of course, the turning away from sin.
2) Believe Jesus Christ died on the cross to save you from your sins and give you eternal life.
John 3:16 says: “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.”
Believing in Jesus is also a part of repenting. You change your mind from unbelief to belief, which results in a change of action.
3) Come to him by faith.
In John 14:6 Jesus said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.”
Faith in Jesus Christ is a change of mind that results in a change of action–coming to him.
4) You may pray a simple prayer to God.
You may want to make your response to God a prayer. Prayer is simply communicating with God. Pray using your own words. There is no special formula. Just pray from your heart to God, and believe that he has saved you. If you feel lost and just don’t know what to pray, here’s a prayer of salvation you can pray.
==”Dear Father in Heaven, I realize that I am a sinner and need forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins [wrongdoings]. I am willing to turn from my sins and lead the life you want me to lead. I now ask Jesus Christ to come into my heart and I receive Him into my life as my personal Savior. I am willing, by God’s grace, to follow and obey Christ as the Lord of my life. Please forgive me for my sins and save me”==
5) Now, don’t doubt.
Salvation is by grace, through faith. There’s nothing you did, or ever can do, to deserve it. It’s a free gift from God. All you have to do is receive it!
Ephesians 2:8 says: “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith — and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.” (NIV)
6) Tell someone about your decision.
Romans 10:9-10 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. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.”
