Our sin separates us from God. There is only one way our sins can be forgiven and our relationship with God restored. We must believe that Jesus died on the cross to take the penalty for our sin and choose to accept this free gift and follow Him.
The Book of Romans describes this for us:
- Romans 3:23 - For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."
- Romans 6:23 - For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ 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 Jesus as Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."
Are you ready to make a decision to follow Christ? If so, you can say this simple prayer:
“Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe you died for my sins and rose from the dead. I trust and follow you as my Lord and Savior. Guide my life and help me to do your will. In your name, amen.”
