I will be sharing my life in Christ and how His word has CHANGED me forever!
God is not mad at you! He isn't counting your sins and holding them against you. He wants, so much, to have a personal relationship with you that He sent Jesus, His only Son, to shed His blood, die on the cross, and then be raised from the dead. He did all that so that you can be set free from the bondage of sin and the fear of death, and enter into eternal life.
-Dr. Larry HuttonMake Jesus YOUR Savior!
After telling Nicodemus, a High Priest and scholar of the scriptures that he must be "Born-Again" to see the kingdom of God, Nicodemus was puzzled and exclaimed: "How can someone be born when they are old?" Nicodemus asked. "Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother's womb to be born!" -John3:3-4
...It's simply a matter of realizing that according to the Bible we are all separated from God by sin and as sinners, in need of a savior. And that only Jesus can remove of all our sins, past, present and future, by His death and resurrection thereby paying our sin debt as He changes our hearts through our repentance and clothing us in His righteousness. This is done by our asking Jesus the Lamb of God and the messiah to come into your life and remove your sins along with your sinful nature and give you a new heart for God.
The thief on the cross experienced this change of heart by simply believing that Jesus was who He said he was and by asking Him to remember him when he came into his kingdom. This simple heartfelt belief and public confession netted him that promise when Jesus proclaimed that "TODAY, you will be with me in Paradise" -Luke 23:4
The new testament scriptures plainly state in -Romans 10:9-10 9 If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
9 If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
Below is a prayerful guide you can read aloud and believe in your heart to accomplish the peace and
inner joy of knowing you are saved!
"Father in Heaven, I know that without Jesus as my Lord & Savior I am lost and on my
way to hell, But I don't want to die and go to hell. I therefore repent of my sins and ask Jesus to come into my life and forgive me of all my sins. To take me as I am and make me
what You want me to be and I'll live the rest of my life for You".
Thank You Jesus!
"Today I have made Jesus my Lord and Savior. Today I place all my trust in an eternity with God the Father in Him. Amen"!
You are now "Born-Again" and your eternal destiny is reserved for you according to
the word of God!
Also, YOUR prayers* are now heard in heaven, clearly and personally by the Father of all creation because of the new connection by way of what Jesus accomplished on the cross.
So, now pray and ask God to lead and guide you to a Bible Believing Church fellowship and bring people into your life that can strengthen and encourage your "New-Found" Faith in Jesus Christ. To disciple you and to help you grow in the knowledge of the Lord and in the power of his might.
( *prayers as in simply speaking directly to God and KNOWING He hears us )
