What God wants you to know
Now, God encourages you to accept what Christ has accomplished by looking to Christ’s act of love by dying on the cross as a substitute payment to God, His heavenly Father, for your sin. In other words, you and I sinned against God but He made it possible for us to be reconciled to Him. Pretty incredible!
As you read above, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” This one verse sums up God’s message:
1. (His Plan) God demonstrated His love for us
2. (Our Problem) We are all sinners
3. (His Provision) Christ died for us (on our behalf, in our place)
What He wants you to do
Have you reached the point in your life that you’re ready to give your sin; past, present and future to God and receive His forgiveness? Are you willing to turn from sin and depend on God for direction and strength to live a life pleasing to Him? Don’t worry, we’re available to help you be successful in your walk with God.
Forgiveness and the promise of Eternal Life are available to you by faith (trust) in what He has done for you through Christ’s death on the cross and resurrection from the grave.
Today, right now, God invites you turn from sin, to ask forgiveness and, by faith in His Son, Jesus Christ, receive His gift of eternal life. How?
A SIMPLE PRAYER
While the decision to become a Christian is, first and foremost, a decision of the heart one way to express your new faith is through a sincere but simple prayer (talking to God).
Remember, it’s not the words from your lips but the attitude of your heart that God cares most about.
So, if the simple prayer below expresses the desire of your heart then, with trust and confidence He hears you, you can pray:
“Father, I confess (agree with You) that I have sinned against You. I willingly turn from my sin and accept your forgiveness offered to me through faith and trust in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ who died for my sin so I could live eternally in your presence. Thank you. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
If you have just accepted God’s gift of eternal life and all the many blessings that He has promised you then Congratulations! This is THE most important day of your life!
