Every single person is born into this world as a sinner, so the result of sin is death.
In Romans 5:12 we read: “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.”
And in Romans 6:23 it says: “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” God desires fellowship and companionship with you.
There is a gap between God and mankind. He has provided a way for us to receive an abundant and eternal life, but people throughout the ages have made selfish choices to disobey God Almighty. These choices continue to cause separation from the Father.
People try to fill that empty void in their lives with “things.” They even try good works, morality, and religion. Yet they remain empty, for only God, through His Son, can fill that emptiness. You can not get into heaven just because you go to church every Sunday or because your dad is a preacher or because you think you are a good, nice person.
For in John 14:6 we read: “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.”
Now realize that you are separated from God and accept the fact that God has provided only one solution to sin and separation from Himself.
Jesus Christ, His Son, is the only way to God.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
Only He can reconcile us to God the Father. Mankind may seek other solutions and worship other gods, but Jesus Christ, alone, died on the Cross for our sins and rose in triumph over the grave and eternal death. He paid the penalty for our sin and bridged the gap between God and mankind.
The Bible explains:
“But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
We are also told:
“For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God.” 1 Peter 3:18a
There is only one way provided:
“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” 1 Timothy 2:5
God Almighty has provided the only way. Jesus Christ paid the penalty for our sin and rebellion against God by dying on the cross, shedding His blood, and rising from the dead to justify and reconcile you back to God the Father.
Pray to receive Jesus Christ into your life. You can be brought back to God, and your relationship with Him can be restored by trusting in Christ alone to save your life from destruction.
This step happens by asking Jesus Christ to take away your sin and to come into your heart to be your Lord and Savior.
God’s Word is very clear:
“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me.” Revelation 3:20
And the Bible tells us:
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” Romans 10:9
You must be born again:
John: 3:3-5: “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 4Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? 5Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.”
The reason why you need to be “spiritually” born is because you have never been spiritually born to begin with. So when the Bible speaks of being “born again,” it actually means “born for the second time.” You were born physically into this world, but you were born without the Spirit of God in your soul (spiritually dead). Yes, God created you, but He gave you a freewill to decide for yourself where you will spend eternity.
Are you willing to let go of your burdens and sins? The Lord shall give you rest:
Matthew 11:28: “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
Are you willing to turn away and repent from your sins? It is a change of mind, change of heart, and a change of action. The reason why Jesus died for us is so that we can have a chance at repentance. This is because nothing can take away our sins except the blood of Jesus Christ.
Acts 3:19a: “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out.”
Are you willing to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior now? Believing in Jesus is accomplished in your heart and soul. Just saying you believe is not good enough. God knows and judges your heart. He knows if you really believe or not.
At this moment you can pray the most important prayer of your life to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord by simply saying:
‘Dear Lord Yahushua,
I believe You are the Son of God. I believe You came to earth 2,000 years ago. I believe You died for me on the cross and shed Your blood for my salvation. I believe You rose from the dead and ascended on high. I believe You are coming back again to earth. Dear Yahushua, I am a sinner. Forgive my sin. Cleanse me now with Your precious blood. Come into my heart. Save my soul right now. I give you my life. I receive You now as my Savior, my Lord, and my God. I am Yours forever, and I will serve You and follow You the rest of my days. From this moment on, I belong to You only. I no longer belong to this world, nor to the enemy of my soul. I belong to You, and I am born again. In Yahushua’s Name, Amen!’
By praying this prayer, confessing your sins, and receiving Jesus Christ into your heart, God has given you the right to become His forgiven child. The Bible gives you this assurance:
“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them who believe on His name”. John 1:12
Now that you are born again:
* Seek to be baptized in water to publicly declare your love for Christ:
Acts 2:38: “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”
Matthew 28:19-20a: “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. 20Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you.”
* Live a holy life, He will give you the power. Obey God’s Word:
John 14:21: “He that hath My commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth Me: and he that loveth Me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.”
* Surrender and give Him your life and submit to His will daily. Pray for Jesus to be more than just your Savior but, for Him to be your Lord and Master.
* Love the Lord with all your heart, soul and mind:
Matthew 22:37-38: “Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38This is the first and great commandment.”
* Read the bible to get to know Him, ask the Holy Spirit to help you in understanding the bible.
* Talk (pray) to Him personally by repenting for sins. praising God, seeking guidance/help for your life, thanking God, just share your every thought with Him.
* Pray to be filled and baptized by the Holy Spirit. Ask Jesus to baptize you in the Spirit:
Matthew 3:11: “I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but He that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: He shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire.”
Mark 1:8: “I indeed have baptized you with water: but He shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.”
* Join a church for fellowship.
* Confess your faith to somebody else.
WARNING: If you don’t receive Jesus Christ and become a born again Christian, then you will sadly burn in hellfire for all eternity:
Revelation 20:15: “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”
Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”
If you never accept Jesus as Savior during your life, then when you die, you go to hell.
If you choose wisely, for Him, all these things will be part of you:
Revelation 22: 1-15: “And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 3And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: 4And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. 5And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever. 6And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done. 7Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book. 8And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. 9Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God. 10And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. 11He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. 12And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.”
