How to Know God and Receive the Love of Christ into Your Life

1. Realize that you are a sinner.

No matter how good a life we try to live, we still fall miserably short of being a good person.  That
is because we are all sinners.  We all fall short of God’s desire for us to be holy.  The Bible says,
“No one is good—not even one” (Romans 3:10 NLT).  This is because we cannot become who we are
supposed to be without Jesus Christ.  
         


2. Recognize that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you.

The Bible tells us, “But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while were
still sinners” (Romans 5:8 NLT).  This is the Good News, that God loves us so much that He sent
His only Son to die in our place when we least deserved it.


3. Repent of your sin.

The Bible tells us to “repent and be converted” (Acts 3:19 NKJV).  The word repent means to
change our direction in life.  Instead of running from God, we can run toward Him.


4. Receive Jesus Christ into your life.

Becoming a Christian is not merely believing some creed or going to church on Sunday.  It is having
Christ Himself take residence in your life and heart.  Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door (of
your life) and knock.  If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in . . . .”
(Revelation 3:20 NKJV).


If you would like to have a relationship with Christ, simply pray this prayer
and mean it in your heart:

Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner.  I believe you died for my sins.  Right now, I turn from my
sins and open the door of my heart and life.  I confess you as my personal Lord and Savior.  Thank
you for saving me.  Amen.

If you just prayed that prayer and meant it, Jesus Christ has now taken residence in your heart!  
Your decision to follow Christ means God has forgiven you and that you will spend eternity in
heaven.  The Bible tells us, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins
and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9 NKJV).  To put your faith in action, be sure to
spend time with God by reading your Bible, praying, going to church, and telling others about Christ.
Please contact us and let us know about your decision to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and
Savior.  

I asked Jesus into my heart,
NOW WHAT DO I DO?
