When you receive the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour, you begin your new life.
2 Corinthians 5:17 [NKJV] If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, behold all things have become new.
MEET JESUS – WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO TO RECEIVE SALVATION?
Christianity is not a religion, but a relationship with a loving, caring Father. Salvation unlike other religions cannot be earned. It is a free gift from God that we receive by grace, through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 2:8-9 [NLT] God saved you by His grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.
To receive this gift of grace, you must believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and receive Him as your Lord and Saviour. He died on a cross and sacrificed His Life so that you and I can receive eternal life.
The Bible says: If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. Romans 10:9-10 [NLT]
THE SALVATION PRAYER (PRAY THIS PRAYER ALOUD)
I confess with my mouth the Lord Jesus Christ and believe in my heart that God has raised Him from the dead. Lord you said in Your Word that whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Today Lord Jesus I call upon Your name for salvation. I give my life to You and I ask that You come into my heart and save me. Today I receive You as my Lord and Saviour and I confess that I have been a sinner. Please wash me in Your precious blood and cleanse me from all my sins. Father Your Word says that unless I forgive those who have done me wrong or hurt me, you cannot forgive me, therefore I forgive, (mention by name) from the bottom of my heart, all those people who have sinned against me, now please write my name in the Lamb’s Book of Life and fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Thank You Lord Jesus Christ! for receiving me, i am born again, old things about me are pass away, everything about me are new. Amen
