HOW TO KNOW JESUS
Do you want a change in your life? You’ve probably made some wrong choices in the past, or you feel empty, lost and wondering if you’ll ever find fulfillment. Only God who created you can satisfy that longing. You can begin your journey to Peace, wisdom, restoration, forgiveness, freedom from bondage through a personal relationship with God and discover the father’s plan for your life.
Recognize that God is a loving Father and has a good plan for you!
No matter what you have done, you can never be too far for God to reach you. The Bible says, “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, [Jesus Christ], that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16). Jesus said, “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly” — a complete life full of purpose (John 10:10). The Invitation is for whoever….and that includes you!
Recognize that people are sinful and separated from God
We have all done, thought or said bad things, which the Bible calls “sin.” The Bible says, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). The result of sin is death, spiritual separation from God (Romans 6:23). However, there’s good news, if you embrace Christ and turn away from our sins (repent), He’s more than willingly to forgive us completely and give us a fresh start in life
Believe that God sent His Son to die for your sins as the only solution to sin!
Jesus died in our place so we could have a relationship with God and be with Him forever. “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). But it didn’t end with His death on the cross. He rose again and still lives! “Christ died for our sins. … He was buried. … He was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). Jesus is the only way to God. Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me” (John 14:6).
Would you like to receive God’s forgiveness?
Salvation can’t be earned. It is God’s free gift to us; we are saved by God’s grace when we have faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. All you have to do is believe you are a sinner, that Christ died for your sins, and ask for His forgiveness, then turn from your sins. If you are not sure whether you are right with God or you know that you need Jesus in your life, you can choose to follow Him right now by praying a prayer of surrender to Jesus below.
PRAY TO RECEIVE CHRIST IN YOUR LIFE
Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe you died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I receive you as my Lord and Saviour. I want to trust and follow you from today. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen!
