God loves us so much He sent His Son, Jesus, to die for us. (John 3:16) Jesus lived a sinless life, but when He died on the cross, He took the sins of everyone. He died the death we deserve. After being buried for three days, God raised Him back to life. He had conquered sin. Jesus died to give us the gift of salvation. When we accept Jesus as our Savior, we are saved from our sins. God now sees Jesus when He looks at us.
We must repent of our sins. Repent means to turn away from our sins and not do them anymore. If we don’t repent and ask forgiveness, we will be eternally separated from God. We do not have to work hard to receive salvation. It is a free gift.
It is not hard to invite Jesus into our lives. When we say a simple prayer, and mean it from our hearts, He will come and reside in us. (Romans 10:9-10) He will never leave us. We will be saved from our sins and live with God for eternity. We may not feel worthy of salvation, but Jesus died for each one of us. (Romans 10:13)
Here is an example of an easy prayer you can say to accept Jesus as your Savior. You don’t have to say these specific words. When you invite Jesus into your life, any words you say, and mean from your heart, are perfect. This is a simple example.
“God, I realize I am a sinner. I believe Jesus died for my sins and was raised to life. I repent of my sins and ask You to forgive me. I invite you into my heart and accept Your salvation now. I choose to live my life for You. Thank You for saving me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!”
Congratulations! If you said those words and meant them in your heart, you are now a child of God. (1 John 3:1) He loves you and will guide you in every area of your life. We would love to know if you just prayed for salvation. We will help you in any way we can. We are so excited for the new life you now have.
We encourage you to get a Bible. There are many apps on phones made readily available with content to help explain what you are reading. The book of John is a great place to start, because it explains Jesus in a special way.
We also recommend finding a good Bible believing church. They are essential in helping you learn and grow in your new life. The baptism of water is important, but not necessary for salvation. Find more information in Mark chapter 16. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is also a great benefit. You can read more about that in the book of Acts chapter two.
