The best decision you'll ever make if you want to fill the void in your life, is to receive salvation - freely offered by accepting and believing in the work of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. No one knows the day or hour that they will die, and after you die, it will be too late to make a decision for Christ. If you want to make that decision today, and become a child of God, There are four steps you must take:
1. Recognize that you are a sinner. You must be willing to admit your spiritual need. The Bible says, "...There is none righteous, no, not one" (Romans 3:10). It's time to stop making excuses, blaming everyone and everything else for your actions or your circumstances."For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23).
2. Recognize that Jesus died on the cross for you. The Bible tells us that Christ also suffered when He died for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but He died for sinners that He might bring us safely home to God. 1 Peter 3:18 tells us that He paid the price for your sin. The Apostle Paul acknowledged, "...so I live my life in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me" (Galatians 2:20).
3.Repent of your sins. The word "repent" means to "change your direction". The Bible tells us, "Now turn from your sins (and your old ways) and turn to God, so you can be cleansed from your sins" (Acts 3:19). God commands people everywhere to repent.You must be willing to turn away from those things that displease God.
4.Receive Christ as your personal Savior. Jesus said, "Come to me all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28). You come to Jesus just as you are. There is no need to try and "clean up your life" before you come to God. Instead, receive Him, and allow Him to do the cleansing. Jesus said, "...those who the Father has given to Me will come to Me, and I will never reject them" (John 6:37).
Prayer of Salvation:
"Father, I know that I am a sinner; I have broken Your law and my sins have separated me from You. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life and turn toward You. Please forgive me, and help me to live my life to please You. I believe that Your Son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected form the dead, is alive, and hears my prayers.I invite you Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. I thank you for accepting me and forgiving me. I am now Your child, born again; I am a new creation; the old things have passed away, and all things have become new. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen."
