Start a Relationship
The most important decision you will ever make is to start a relationship with God by placing your trust in Jesus to be your Savior. Our sin, like a chasm, comes between us and God. The wages or penalty for that sin is physical, spiritual, and eternal death. Jesus died in our place and for our sins—He bridged the gap for us. When we place our faith in Christ, our relationship with our creator is restored.
Put your trust in Jesus to be your Savior by praying to God:
▹that you’re a sinner.
Romans 3:23—“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
▹that the death and resurrection of Jesus is the only solution for your sin. Romans 5:8b—“While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
▹that you’re placing your trust in Jesus for God’s forgiveness and the gift of eternal life.
Romans 10:13—“For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Here is a sample prayer you can pray:
Dear God, I know I have sinned against you. I believe you sent your only Son to come into this world to die in my place and for my sin. He rose again from the dead, demonstrating that you accepted His payment on my behalf. Today, I’d like to place my trust in Jesus Christ to be my Savior. I turn to Him for the forgiveness of my sins. I come to you in Jesus’ name and because of what He did for me. Amen.
