So you made it this far? The Gift, The Problem, The Solution and now the Next Step.
First of ALL, you are not walking this PATH on your own, MILLIONS around the world have come to the PLACE you find yourself in RIGHT NOW…In fact I would guess that where you LIVE in your area there are people asking the same questions you’ve asked, FEELING that SENSE of “There MUST be MORE to LIFE than this“, “This CANT be IT“…There will be people around you who have fought through the DOUBT and are where you are, I NEED help, to be honest I NEED saving from the mess of my own life and the world around me. I WANT that GIFT of LIFE with GOD.
This is such an important matter – let’s face it – we’re talking about ETERNITY, we should just clarify what this NEXT STEP involves. It means that you want to MOVE your TRUST or FAITH from what you have been doing, this OLD LIFE, to what JESUS has done for you at the CROSS. Accepting JESUS as the SOLUTION, the ONLY SOLUTION to the SIN PROBLEM in YOU and this world.
You’re saying JESUS come SAVE me.
As you do that you RECEIVE JESUS as LORD of your life. You basically GIVE Him the DRIVER’S seat and CONTROLS of your life, not the back seat, not the passenger seat, but the DRIVER’S seat. Accepting you have SINNED, ignored God and rejected Him in the Past, you REPENT, that simply means YOU choose to TURN to GOD, away from your SIN, and that you are willing to turn from anything that is not pleasing to GOD. Don’t worry, this DOESN’T mean YOU have to be PERFECT and that RIGHT NOW at the very START of this JOURNEY with GOD that you need to know everything that needs to change, GOD walks with you and reveals those things to you as you FOLLOW Him and go deeper into your RELATIONSHIP with Him.
Is THIS what you really want? YES…Then why not PRAY, right where you are, right NOW. Praying is just TALKING, the difference here is you’re talking to JESUS, you DON’T need to be anywhere special, you DON’T need to be wearing anything special, you DON’T need to have someone else pray for you, in fact you DON’T have to have it all together, be already walking in the right direction, or out of the things you know are your SINS. You SIMPLY need to say “Sorry JESUS” for your SINS and ask Him “Come SAVE me“.
For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame – Romans 10:9-11
God PROMISES us that,
“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” – Romans 10:13
You may already know what you want to say to JESUS in your PRAYER, if so GO FOR IT…If you’re struggling with finding the words, then below is a prayer you can say. Whether you follow the below or call out in your own words, the end result is the same…WELCOME to the Family! You are a child of God, free from the DEBT of SIN, saved by JESUS and on that PATH of FOLLOWING Him...
Lord Jesus, thank you for Your gift of eternal life. I know I am a sinner and I do not deserve eternal life, but I thank you that You loved me so much, You died and rose from the grave for me to purchase a place in heaven for me. I now trust You alone for eternal life and repent of my sin. Please take control of my life, be my Lord, my Saviour, my GOD. Thank You Lord
