You Can Be A Child of God!
God loves you and wants you to follow Him with your whole life. This is called becoming a Christian—and it is the most important decision you will ever make. You become a Christian when you:
1) ADMIT that you are separated from God.
God loves us, but we are separated from God and His love because of our sin. Sin is when we do wrong things or make bad choices; choices that are different than what God would want us to do. "For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard" - (Romans 3:23).
2) BELIEVE that Jesus died and rose again to be your Savior.
God sent His only Son Jesus to save us. Jesus was born more than 2,000 years ago and lived a sinless life. Jesus died on a cross to take the punishment for our sin, and came back to life three days later. This act of love bridged the gap between you and God!
"God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners (Romans 5:8). The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 6:23).
3) CONFESS your sin, REPENT of your sin and commit your life to God.
Jesus is the way to eternal life with God. Asking God for forgiveness and accepting Jesus as your Savior will begin your relationship with God here on earth, as well. If we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness (1 John 1:9). For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children (Romans 8:16)
JESUS made it possible for you to experience God’s love RIGHT NOW!
If you want to get connected to God and ask Jesus to become your friend, say this simple prayer and believe it in your heart:
Dear God, I admit that I am a sinner and that I want to have a relationship with You. Please forgive me for all of the wrong things I have done. I believe in my heart that Jesus died and rose again to take away my sin, and I declare Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. Please fill me with Your Holy Spirit that I may be faithful to You.
Thank you for saving me and for letting me become Your child. Please speak to me and help me to hear Your voice and to follow Your ways. I look forward to spending time with You, both here on earth and in heaven. In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.
