“Simply” Believe – Steps To Putting Your Faith In Jesus Christ
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior but desire to take this step of faith, all you need to do is:
First: Recognize that God loves you!
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Second: Admit you are a sinner.
Romans 3:23 “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
Romans 3:10 “As it is written: ‘There is none righteous, no, not one;’”
Third: Recognize Jesus Christ as being God’s only remedy for sin.
Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
John 1:12 “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.”
1 Corinthians 15:3-4 “For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.”
Fourth: Receive Jesus Christ as your personal Savior!
Romans 10:9 “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
Prayer is simply “talking to God.” Right now, go to God in prayer and ask Christ to be your Savior. You might pray something like this:
“Lord Jesus, I need You. I confess that I am a sinner and that You paid the penalty for my sin through Your death on the cross. I believe that You died for my sins and were raised from the dead. I ask You to come into my heart, take control of my life and make me the kind of person that you want me to be. Thank you for coming into my life as You promised. Amen.”
