Have you ever experienced the life-changing power of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ? Do you have the inner peace of knowing that if you died today, you would go to heaven? Do you know for sure?
Life holds many twists, turns and uncertainties, yet one fact remains consistent and has since the beginning of time: true inner peace in your life begins with a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Jesus is the way to a relationship with God that will give you both inner peace and eternal life! He said in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father but through me.”
Here’s how you can know for S.U.R.E. that you have eternal life!
See that you are a sinner in God’s eyes and separated from Him.
“For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.”Romans 3:23 (NLT)
Understand that Christ died for your sins and as God, came back from the dead.
“It is this Good News that saves you if you continue to believe the message I told you—unless, of course, you believed something that was never true in the first place. I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me. Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said.” 1 Corinthians 15:2-4 (NLT)
Receive God’s total forgiveness for your sins by trusting Christ as your Savior.
“Now God says He will accept us and acquit us – declare us not guilty – if we trust Jesus Christ to take away our sins… we can be saved by coming to Christ, no matter who we are or what we have been like.” Romans 3:22 (LB)
Express your desire for Christ to be the Lord of your life.
“If you say with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved from the punishment of sin.” Romans 10:9 (NLV)
If you are willing to receive God’s free gift of eternal life, you can receive Jesus Christ into your heart right now by praying this prayer:
Dear God, I am a sinner and want to be forgiven. I believe Jesus Christ, your son, died for my sins and is alive right now. I turn away from my sin and now confess Jesus Christ as my Lord and receive him into my life. I ask you, Lord Jesus, to control my life and I thank you for giving me eternal life.
Congratulations! Committing your life to Jesus Christ and deciding to follow Him are the greatest steps you have ever taken! You have decided to allow Him to be your personal Lord and Savior. To know Jesus and to follow Him is to have eternal and abundant life.
Your decision is just the beginning of your new walk with Christ. Show the world how God has changed your life. Follow Jesus in believer’s baptism.
