How To Receive the Gift of Eternal Life
ADMIT: we all are sinners. No one is perfect, everybody has sinned. All will be judged.
Romans 3:10 “As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one.”
Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”
The price of sin.
Romans 6:23a “for the wages of sin is death.”
BELIEVE: Jesus Christ paid for your sins by dying on the cross. He rose on the third day to show his victory over sin. He offers forgiveness, the gift of eternal life.
Romans 5:8 “But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.”
Romans 6:23b “…but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
REPENT: Ask God to forgive you for sinning and being a sinner. It’s important to repent for sin in your life.
Mark 1:14-15; 9:13 “… I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance”
CONFESS: Jesus as Lord and call on Him for salvation.
Romans 10:9-10, 13 “…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; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation…For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
THE SINNER’S PRAYER. If you’re ready to accept Jesus, please pray a prayer like the one below.
Dear God, I admit that I’m a sinner and realize that my sins have separated me from You. I repent of my sins. I acknowledge and believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that he died, was buried, and rose on the third day to offer the gift of eternal life. I give my life to you by trusting in Jesus now and forever. Come into my heart right now as I claim your forgiveness for my sins and save my soul from eternal wrath. I accept your gift of eternal life. Thank you for saving me. Help me to live this new life in the fullness of your power. In Jesus name, Amen.
