The Bible gives us the steps to receiving this amazing gift:
Romans 3:10 “There is none righteous, no, not one.”
Romans 3:23 “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Romans 10:9 “that 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.”
Romans 10:13 “For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
If you want a personal relationship with God and the assurance that your sins have been forgiven, just call on the name of the Lord… “Father, I come to you, confessing my sin and asking for your forgiveness. I want to turn from my sins and live in a way that will please You. Lord. I ask that you give me the power through your Holy Spirit to walk in Christ. I thank you that Jesus Christ died on the cross, paying the price for my sins, and then rose from the dead to give me eternal life. I accept Him now as my Savior, my Lord, and my friend. Thank you for giving me a new life in Christ. In Jesus’ name, Amen”.
