So, why do we need to be saved? Because we are born into death. According to the Bible, the first man, Adam, sinned by disobeying God. Since then, we are born into sin. Everyone is a sinner. And sin leads to death (eternal death...Hell).
As a human being (and as one who has come to this page), don't you want to live?
If you have decided to believe in God and want to become a follower of Christ, it's quite simple (but not
Try to do these steps in a prayer (If you don't know how to pray, all you need to do is talk to God. You don't have to make it fancy):
First, you must recognize that you are a sinner. I know, I know--it's not like you had much of a choice. But being able to recognize your sin is the first step. Not everyone is willing to admit this. But you need to admit this in order to receive God's gift of salvation.
"Dear Lord Jesus, I understand that I am a sinner and I am truly sorry for all that I've done..."
Next, you must confess your sins and ask for forgiveness. Now that you recognize that you are a sinner, have you done something wrong that weighs upon your heart? Confess it to God. Let it all out. God knows what you've done. He just wants you to acknowledge it.
"Please forgive me. I have sinned. I'm sorry for the time that I..."
Now believe and repent. Believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins. And turn away from those sins, for that is what it means to repent.
"I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that he died for my sins. And now I ask for your help, Lord, as I repent of those sins..."
Finally, accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. What does this mean? It means to give your life over to him. Ever since you were born, you lived for yourself. Why? That was just in your nature. You didn't have a reason. What's the point in feeling good? What's the point in being comfortable? That is just how you are. If you want to believe in God, it's time you stopped living for yourself and started living for Him.
"Oh Lord Jesus, I accept you into my heart and ask that you become the Lord of my life. Teach me how to live for you. Thank you for this gift of life. In Jesus' name I pray... Amen."
God has a plan for your life. Will you accept it?
If you have truly accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you should seek out his word, the Holy Bible, and find a good Bible-based church to go to.
