All people have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. (Romans
I have personally led many people to God as they prayed a prayer similar
to the following prayer. I invite you to pray this prayer with me now.
Dear God, I acknowledge that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
I believe that He was born of the Virgin Mary. I believe that He
died on the cross, that His blood was shed for my sins and that
He arose from the dead. I confess that I have disobeyed your commandments.
I ask you to forgive me for these sins. I now ask Jesus to come
into my heart. Be my Savior. Be my Lord. Be my soon coming King.
I will do my best to obey your teachings as recorded in the Bible.
Thank you, in Jesus name. Amen.
After you have prayed this prayer find someone with whom you can share
your new salvation. It is important to spend time reading the Bible.
I suggest that you begin with the book of John. The Bible feeds your
new spirit inside of you.
did not come into the world to condemn the world but to save the world.
From what? Jesus wants to save you from your sinful
death, from yourself. You can be saved if you confess and repent of your
sins and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans
10:9, John 3:16)
When you accept Jesus into your heart as your Lord and Savior, get "saved" or
are born again" you take the first step on the Way
Hell is the "reward" for people who do not believe
in Jesus; Heaven is the reward for those who accept Jesus Christ as their
Lord and Savior.
Jesus came to call us to repentance for our sins. When you repent, you
turn from going away from God, to going toward God where you seek to
do His will and not your own.
When you repent you make a 180 degree turn. Some people say that you
turn over a new leaf.
We must be born of the Spirit and take on the Spirit or nature of God.
When we came into this world we were born of the flesh, like our parents.
All people are descendants of Adam and Eve who sinned in the garden of
Eden. Because of their sin we are born with the same sinful, lustful
nature which desires the things of this world more than the things of
We are all sinners because we disobey God's laws as written in the Holy
Bible. We may try to obey but within ourselves we cannot successfully
obey. The spirit of Satan influences us to disobey God. When we give
in to Satan and he causes us to sin, we have guilt, anger, greed, hatred,
pride, jealousy and bitterness. This is often a source of unhappiness
as we disappoint ourselves and hurt other people. Many times this is
the root cause of depression and an unfulfilled life which escalates
as we perpetuate the cycle, seeking happiness and finding none. Sin destroys
us and leads to destruction in an everlasting Hell.
While talking with Nicodemus, Jesus declared, "I tell you the truth,
no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again" John
Jesus said, "I am come that they might have life, and that they
might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd
gives his life for the sheep." John 10:10, 11. Jesus wants you to
have a life of peace. Peace comes from allowing Jesus to live within
our hearts. Disobedience to the Word of God destroys this peaceful, full
life that Jesus provided for us. Sin separates us from the presence of
John 3:15-18 says, "That everyone who believes in Him may have
everlasting life. For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only
Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but
to save the world through Him. Whoever believes in Him is not condemned,
but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has
not believed in the name of Gods one and only Son."
The Way of Salvation
Salvation is not merely a one-time experience. It is an experience which
places you on the Christian faith journey - the Way of Salvation. Accepting
Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior is your first step on the trip.
As you read your Bible you will grow spiritually. Find some good Christian
people to associate with. Begin to attend a Bible believing church. Learn
how to witness to others telling them about your new relationship with
Jesus. The goal of the Christian life is not getting into Heaven; that
is the reward. The goal is to continually become more like Jesus Christ
and for your personal relationship with Him to grow deeper.
A good friend of mine had prepared some teachings on the book of John
in the Holy Bible. He has made his teachings available to any one who
cares to listen or read them. You can find out more about my friend and

I encourage you to listen to good bible teaching and grow in the Lord.
