RECEIVING CHRIST INTO YOUR LIFE

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16)

YOU NEED A SAVIOR

JESUS CHRIST IS THE SAVIOR

HOW TO MAKE THE LORD JESUS YOUR SAVIOR

PRAYING TO RECEIVE CHRIST

YOU NEED A SAVIOR

“For the Son of Man has come to seek and save that which was lost.” (Luke 19:10)

You cannot be saved without first realizing that you are lost. People who are trusting in the golden rule, good works or self-righteousness are following a way “which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death” (Proverbs 14:12)

God saves sinners. You must see yourself as a lost sinner, doomed to eternal separation from God except for the saving grace of the Lord Jesus Christ.

“…it is appointed for men to die once, and after this comes judgment” (Heb. 9:27)

“There is none righteous, not even one; there is none who understands, there is none who seeks for God…there is no distinction; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Rom. 3:10-11, 22-23)

“All of us like sheep have gone astray; each of us has turned to his own way” (Isa. 53:6)

JESUS CHRIST IS THE SAVIOR

“God…desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony borne at the proper time.” (1Timothy 2:3-6)

“In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” (1John 4:10)

A religion, temple or church cannot save you. A Christian loved one or friend cannot save you. Fraternal organizations cannot save you. Founders of religious paths cannot save you. Even your pious/good life and deeds cannot save you, for “all our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment” (Isa. 64:6) in the presence of God’s holiness. The Lord Jesus Christ is the only One Who can save your lost soul.

“And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12)

“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Rom. 6:23)

“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Rom. 5:8)

HOW TO MAKE THE LORD JESUS YOUR SAVIOR

“And we have beheld and bear witness that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world…And the witness is this that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.” (1John 4:14; 5:11)

To become a Christian it is necessary for a definite transaction on the part of the sinner. God will do His part but you also have a responsibility. When you realize you are a lost sinner, that the Lord Jesus Christ is the Saviour you need, the next step is to believe the truth of God’s Word, confess your sin and need of a Saviour and simply ask Him to save you.

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Rom. 10:13)

“Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved, you and your household. (Acts 16:30)

“That if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved…For the Scripture says, ‘Whoever believes in Him will not be disappointed.” (Rom. 10:9, 11)

“All that the Father gives Me shall come to Me; and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out.” (John 6:37)

PRAYING TO RECEIVE CHRIST

Now that the saving Gospel of Christ has been presented to you, will you sincerely make the following prayer to God?

“Jesus, I believe you are Lord. I am a lost sinner, and I want to become a Christian. I trust in the blood that you shed on Calvary for the cleansing of my sin. I believe you alone rose from the dead, and I open the door of my heart to receive you as my personal Savior. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for saving me now.”
