First, I want to congratulate you for wanting to know more about receiving salvation through a saving faith in Jesus Christ. Know that you are not here by accident, but were led here by God.
"The heart of man plans his way,
but the LORD establishes his steps" (Proverbs 16:9).
God loves you and has a wonderful plan for you. He wants to have a personal relationship with you.
"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope" (Jeremiah 29:11).
But we have a problem. Sin entered the world and separated us from God''s love along with His plan for us. We are sinful creatures and therefore, can not have fellowship with a holy God.
"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23).
And the punishment for sin is death. However, God gave us a solution to free us from sin and save us from death. That solution is to repent of our sins and to believe in God's Son, Jesus Christ for salvation.
" For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 6:23).
"But what God foretold by the mouth of all the prophets, that his Christ would suffer, he thus fulfilled. Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out" (Acts 3:18-19).
God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for our sins. Jesus died, was buried, and then rose on the third day. Jesus is alive indeed and he is currently sitting at the right hand of God and interceding on our behalf! Believing that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came to die on the cross for our sins is the only way to restore fellowship with God.
"Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us" (Romans 8:34).
"Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" (John 14:6).
Do not hesitate to call on the name of Jesus Christ and receive God's free gift of salvation.
"And they said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household" (Acts 16:31).
A saving faith in Jesus Christ will give you a peace and joy that only a merciful and loving God can give.
Invite Jesus into your life today by praying this prayer:
Lord Jesus, I believe that you are the Son of God and that you came to die on the cross for our sins, Thank you for forgiving me and freeing me of my sins and giving me eternal life. I want a relationship with you and to receive you as my Lord and Savior. I give you control of my life and will follow you for the rest of my days. Amen.
