Admit to God you have sinned against Him:

“As it is written, there is no one righteous, not even one..” Romans 3:10

“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23

Understand the consequences of sin:

“For the wages of sin is death…”

Understand eternal life is a gift from God:

“…the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23

Believe God loves you despite your sin

“But God demonstrates His own love for us in this:  while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8

 

Believe the Gospel (Good News) of Jesus Christ:

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes…” Romans 1:16

By faith, ask God to forgive you of your sin and to give you eternal life through Jesus Christ:

“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord”, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9

“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Romans 10:13

Would you like to call on the name of the Lord?

If you want to accept the invitation to know Jesus personally all you have to do is ask Him.  In fact, you can pray now wherever you are.  Read this prayer and see if it says what you want to say to God.

“Dear God, I know that Jesus is Your Son, and that He died on the cross and was raised from the dead.  I know I have sinned and need forgiveness.  I am willing to turn from my sins and receive Jesus as my Savior and Lord.  Thank You for saving me.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
