So, you are interested in asking Jesus into your heart?
Well, we are incredibly proud of you and cheering for you on your decision today. Asking Jesus into your heart is probably the most important decision that you will ever make and He will completely and radically change your heart.
As we get started today, let me
reaffirm God’s desire to come into your heart, forgive you of your sins and
welcome you into His eternal kingdom. The
"That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved" (Romans 10:9-10) .
Did you see that? You will be saved! It’s God’s desire to save you, forgive you of your sins, welcome you into His eternal kingdom and help you redeem your story here on earth. If you let Him, he will do it!
So, where do start? Let’s consider this scripture: "Jesus answered and said to him, 'Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God'" (John 3:3).
How does one become born again?
1. Acknowledge in your heart that Jesus is Lord.
2. Confess with your mouth that Jesus truly is your Savior and your Lord.
3. Believe that Jesus died for your sins and was raised three days later.
4. Repent of your sins before the Lord and ask Him to help you live for Him.
I want to get born again, what do I need to do?
To be born again you must confess Jesus as Lord and believe that He is God, the one that has paid the price for your sins. Let me give you a few more thoughts before you pray a prayer asking God to be born again. The salvation prayer is not a ritual based on specific words, it’s a prayer that you pray from heart, asking God to come into your life, forgive you and be the Lord of your life. The following is merely a guideline for our sincere step of faith as a pray today:
"God, I recognize that
I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself
and that is wrong. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge
the completed work of Your Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the
cross at Calvary, and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely
available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up
residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day
forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself,
but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I
ask this in Jesus' precious and holy name. Amen."
