HOW DO I ACCEPT CHRIST?
The Gospel is Good News in a World of Dying Virtue
In a world that is coming apart at the seams, there is hope for you! Jesus Christ died on a cross to pay the consequences of our sins for us. Jesus was the Son of God and He has the power to free you from your sins, addictions, and shortcomings. He is always willing to forgive, no matter where you’ve been or what you’ve done. Experience the changed life that is waiting for you, if you’ll only pray to receive Jesus into your heart and be forgiven of your sins. Start at the top of the next column and follow the instructions carefully…
HE IS CALLING YOU!
[Revelations 3:20] “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hears my voice, and opens the door, I will come into him, and will dine with him, and he with me.” Jesus is waiting to come into your heart right now. You didn’t seek Him, but He sought you and you feel Him calling you right now.
[1 John 1:9] “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
CONFESS AND BELIEVE.
[Romans 10:8-10, 13] “But what does it say? ‘The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart’ (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
HOW TO BE BORN-AGAIN:
How do people become “saved” and “born again” Christians? How can you receive eternal life so that you will be sure to go to be with God when you die? The following is a synopsis of what the Bible requires.
Admit that you are a sinner.
The Bible says, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” [Romans 3:23].
Know that God has already provided for your salvation.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” [John 3:16].
Know that you cannot save yourself.
“Not by works of righteousness which we have done but according to his mercy he saved us” [Titus 3:5].
Repent of your sins.
“I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.” [Luke 13:3].
Ask Jesus Christ to save you.
“For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13) and “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.” [Acts 16:31].
Proclaim Jesus before others.
“If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” [Romans 10:9, 10].
You can be powerfully “saved” and “born again” and receive eternal life right NOW, as millions of people worldwide have. When you receive Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, you will overwhelmingly look at your salvation as the most exciting event in your life.
Genuinely say a simple prayer like the following (the exact words are not essential). If you are sincere, God will immediately save you and give you eternal life.
A GUIDE FOR 'WHAT TO PRAY'
“Dear Jesus, I ask you to come into my heart. I know that I am a sinner, but I believe that you died on the cross and rose from the dead to set me free. I believe that your shed blood has released me from the power of sin. I pledge by God’s grace, to follow and obey Christ as the Lord of my life. Please forgive me for my sins and save me. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.”
“GOD is always voting for man. The devil is always voting against man. Then, the man himself votes and breaks the tie.”
