You Can Receive Eternal Life Through Jesus Christ

The Bible shows you how:

1. God Loves You no matter what you have done in the past.

2. You have Sinned.

3. Jesus Christ took your sins on Himself and died in your place.

4. What To Do

The best way I know of receiving Jesus so that you can become one of those "children of God" is to pray to God and tell him of the intention of your heart. The prayer doesn't save you, it is the desire on your part to admit, believe, confess and receive Jesus the God man. Here is a suggested prayer you can use or modify:

The decision to receive Jesus and the gift of forgiveness is the most important thing you can do in your life. In fact it ensures you will have eternal life. You can know this for sure because Jesus promises this to us. "I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life. (John 5:24) Notice that verse says "has eternal life" and says "crossed over from death to life". It tells you that you will have eternal life with God in Heaven.

Now that you have received Jesus what do you do?

- Jesus commands us to be baptized as a testimony to your new faith. See Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 8:35-39; 16:30-34; Romans 6:3-5.

- Find other believers at a church where the Bible is taught and trusted as the word of God.

- Read from God's Word, the Bible every day. A good place to start is the Gospel of John.

- Tell other people about what Jesus has done for you.

- Confess your sins to God when you sin. Just because your are now saved from your sin, doesn't mean you will never sin. Becoming a believer is just the beginning of starting a new life as a child of God. And all children grow into maturity. You will grow to be more and more like Jesus.

Remember this, Christians aren't perfect. But they are forgiven!
