Accept Christ

Somehow you stumbled onto this page. But, please know, God is not a God of coincidence and you were destined to read this truth about eternity. Please read these four points and your life will change forever if you are willing:

1. God Loves You!

The Bible says, "God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life"

The problem is that . . .

2. All of us have done, said or thought things that are wrong. This is called sin, and our sins have separated us from God.

The Bible says “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” God is perfect and holy, and our sins separate us from God forever. The Bible says “The wages of sin is death.”

The good news is that,

3. God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins.

Jesus is the Son of God. He lived a sinless life and then died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins. “God demonstrates His own love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.”

Jesus rose from the dead and now He lives in heaven with God His Father. He offers us the gift of eternal life -- of living forever with Him in heaven if we accept Him as our Lord and Savior. Jesus said "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except by Me."

God reaches out in love to you and wants you to be His child. "As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe on His name." You can choose to ask Jesus Christ to forgive your sins and come in to your life as your Lord and Savior.

4. If you want to accept Christ as your Savior and turn from your sins, you can ask Him to be your Savior and Lord by praying a prayer like this:

"Lord Jesus, I am a sinner and need you in my life. Please forgive me of my sins. I believe that You died on the cross and rose from the grave. Please come into my heart and life. Thank you for helping me turn from my sins and follow you. Amen."

What now?
If you received Jesus into your heart, you are now part of the family of God! The following will help you deepen your relationship with Christ:

1. Prayer is simply talking to God. Take time to pray every day. It doesn’t matter where you are or what you are doing, God hears you.
2. Reading the Bible is God’s way of teaching you about Him. Read the Bible everyday to learn about Jesus and the way to live for Him. Perhaps start with the book of John.
3. An important part of helping your relationship with Christ grow is to tell others about Him. Demonstrate God’s love and be active in telling others about Jesus.
4. Surrounding yourself with other Christians will help your faith grow. Find a church that teaches the Bible and become active in worship, service and fellowship with other Christians.
