Making A Decision
There are many important decisions you make as you go throughout your life. But there will never be a more important decision for you than the one that has to do with your relationship with Jesus Christ and your eternal destiny, where you will go when you die.
The Bible tells us there is only one way to heaven and that is through faith in Jesus Christ. In order that we might have a relationship with God and go to heaven when we die, God has provided a plan.John 14:6
I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.Acknowledge Your Sinfulness
The Bible tells us we are all sinners.Romans 3:23
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.1 John 1:8
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
Our sins have dire consequences.
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
We must not only acknowledge our sins but we must confess them.1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins.Repent Of Your SinActs 3:19
Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out.
Repentance is more than merely being sorry for our sins. Repentance is turning away from our sins and turning to God. It is a change of heart and mind that results in a change of action and conduct. Repentance is necessary if we would experience God’s forgiveness and new life.Luke 13:3
Unless you repent, you too will all perish.Believe In Jesus ChristJohn 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
To believe in Jesus Christ is more than to give intellectual ascent to Him. It is to put your trust in Him, to commit your way to Him, to surrender your life to Him. It is to believe that He died to provide forgiveness for your sins, and that He rose from the dead to give you eternal life.Acts 16:31
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved.Invite Him Into Your Life
You might pray a prayer something like this: Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and I believe that you died for my sins. I am sorry for my sins and I ask you to forgive me. I turn away from my sins and invite you to come into my heart and life. I put my faith and trust in you, and accept you as my Savior and Lord. In Jesus name. Amen.Romans 10:10
For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.Romans 10:9
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.John 1:12
Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.Have Assurance
If you have truly confessed your sins and accepted Jesus into your heart God’s Holy Spirit will give you an inner assurance that you have been saved and that you are now a child of God. That assurance will continue with you as long as you abide in Jesus and allow Him to abide in you.Romans 10:13
Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.1 John 5:12-13
He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.Stick With It
Tell others about Jesus Christ and what He has done for you. Read and study your Bible every day. Talk to God in prayer every day. Attend a good church where you can be in worship and fellowship with other believers. Demonstrate your new life in your conduct and in your love and concern for others.
We would love to have you become part of our church, but if that is not possible,
then find a church near you that will help you grow in your relationship with God.
