Prayer of Salvation
Questions – We all have them
What is salvation?
Do you find yourself asking if Jesus really resides in you?
Where will you go when you die? Heaven or hell?
What does the Bible say about salvation?
Have you wondered what other people have that perhaps you don’t have?
Do you find yourself exhausted from running in the opposite direction away from God as fast as you can?
Maybe you realize something is missing from your life?
Do you have friends and family who believe in Jesus?
Perhaps you are wondering how people can be so joyful in today’s world?
Today can be the day
Right now, here and now, you can ask Jesus to come into your life, and into your heart. Today can be the first day of the rest of your life my friend.
It’s as simple as ABC
Jesus is Lord. This means that he has authority over our lives. He’s in charge.
Jesus’ name means Savior. He died on the cross to pay the price for our sins and to save us from the penalty for our sins, which is to be separated from God forever.
Jesus is the Christ or the Messiah. This means that he is the only one who was sent by God, the Father, to be the King who will reign in God’s eternal kingdom. Jesus is the Messiah that God promised that he would send in the Old Testament writings.
Would you like to accept Jesus into your heart?
If you want to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, please say this prayer of salvation with me right now to yourself:
Dear God, I know that my sin has separated me from you. Thank you that Jesus Christ died on the cross in my place. I ask Jesus to forgive my sin and to come into my life. Please begin to direct my life. Thank you for giving me eternal life. In Jesus name, Amen.
Welcome to God’s family
Listen, my brother or sister, that’s it! Romans 10:9 says this, “That 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.” It’s a heart thing.
If you confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus is Lord, you are now a part of God’s family. You are a brother or sister in Christ.
Perhaps you’ve heard others refer to people as brothers or sisters in Christ. You are now one of those people.
Babies are born every day and left to fend for themselves, so a new believer in God’s family also needs guidance. Take the next step in your new faith and seek guidance from people you know are already Christians.
Get a Bible
Get yourself a good study Bible from a local Christian bookstore.
Find a Bible-believing church
Check out local churches in your area and dive into Sunday school and Bible studies. Drink in all that God has to teach you, to show you, to give you. The possibilities are endless with God.
His love is new every single day. He longs to have a relationship with you and what better way to start that relationship than to dig into the Bible, His love letters to you.
