1. Know that you are a sinner, Romans 3:23 states "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." We cannot erase our sin, we deserve our just punishment.
2. Since we can't ever measure up to God's standard, God has a plan that will save us. God sent his Son to become a bridge for us to cross over from death to life. John 3:16-17 "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. For God did not send His Son to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved."
3. If a person accepts that they are a sinner, and believes that Jesus Christ died on the cross to save him from his sins, than he is accepting Jesus as his Lord and Savior. John 1:12 "For as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become the children of God."
4. Admit you are a sinner and need forgiveness, Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the Cross and rose from the grave, Through prayer, confess that Jesus Christ is the only way to God and commit to live for Him for the rest of your life.
We must trust Jesus Christ to forgive our sins and determine to obey Him. That way we can know God and find peace again. So you will be saved, if you honestly say, Jesus is Lord, and if you believe with all your heart that God raised Him from death. God will accept you and save you, if you truly believe this (Romans 10:9-10).
When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we are made right with God through the Grace of God, Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.
So knowing that there really is a God, and He really did send His Son to earth to suffer and die for our sins, Romans 5:8, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us,
” why would you not want to seek forgiveness of your sins and accept Jesus as your Savior? Acts 4:12 "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."
Please don't put off until tomorrow something that is this important. How do you know you will have a tomorrow? None of us have any assurance that we will have any tomorrows. What if you died unexpectedly!
You cannot accept Jesus after you die. Make Jesus the Lord
and Savior of your life right now. Make a choice today that will have eternal consequences.
This is everyone’s own personal choice. God even gave everyone the freedom of choice so that not one single person would be forced to love God, but that it would be a person’s choice to love God.
Christianity is not just a word but a very important lifestyle and a change of one's heart.
