The heart tends to run from God
and rebel against him.
The Bible calls this "sin."
Romans 3:23 says
"For all have sinned
and fall short of the glory of God."
Yet God loves you
and wants to save you from sin,
to offer you a new life of hope.
John 10:10 Says
"I have come
that you may have life
and have it to the full."
To give you this gift of salvation,
God made a way through his son,
Romans 5:8 Says
"But God demonstrates His own love for us in this:
While we were sinners, Christ died for us.
You receive this gift
by faith alone.
Ephesians 2:8 Says
"For it is by grace you have been saved,
and this not from yourselves,
it is the gift of God, not by works
so that no one can boast."
Faith is a decision of you heart
demonstrated by the actions of your life.
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."
If you are choosing right now
to believe Jesus died for your sins
and to receive new life through Him,
Pray a prayer similar to this
to thank Him for you new life.
"Dear God, I know I am a sinner,
I believe Jesus died to forgive me of my sins.
I now accept your offer of eternal life.
Thank you for forgiving me of all my sins.
Thank you for my new life.
From this day forward,
I will choose to follow You."
If you prayed this prayer,
share it with a Christian friend or pastor.
If you are not already attending church,
find one in which you can worship
and grow in your faith.
Following Christ's example,
ask to be baptized
as a public expression of your faith
