- How does it work? Recognize that you are a sinner and that you have sinned. Romans 3:23 says "for all have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God."
- Realize that sin seperated you from God. Isaiah 59:2 says "but your iniquities have seperated you from your God; and your sins have hidden His face from you so that He will not hear."
- Believe and rejoice that God has the answer for your sins, Jesus Christ, who died for your sins. He was buried and raised on the third day. John 3:16 says "that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believes in Him shall have everlasting life."
- Receive Jesus Christ, God's Answer to salvation. Receive Him as Lord by admitting that you are a sinner and:
- REPENT, Acts 3:19 says "Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so come from the presence of the Lord."
- BELIEVE in Christ, Acts 16:31 says, "so they said believe the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved, ..."
- CONFESS JESUS CHRIST AS LORD, Romans 10:9 says that "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."
NOW, SAY THIS PRAYER:
"LORD JESUS, I KNOW THAT I WAS A SINNER. I HAVE NOW RECEIVED YOU INTO MY LIFE AS MY LORD AND SAVIOR.
I AM NOW FREE FROM SIN AND BONDAGE AND I RECEIVE YOUR LOVE, FORGIVENESS, AND THE GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE IN YOU, JESUS CHRIST, AMEN."
Praise the Lord, Halleleujah!!
YOU ARE NOW SAVED!!!!
