How to Receive God's Eternal Gift of Life

Who needs to be Saved?

everyone! The Bible says:

  • "...I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again." John 3:3
  • "...for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23
What must I do to be Saved?

believe what God's Word says!

All have sinned:

  • "There is not a righteous man on earth who does what is right and never sins." Ecclesiastes 7:20

You cannot be saved by good deeds or sincerity or moral living:

  • "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not of yourselves, it is the gift of God -- not by works, so that no one can boast." Ephesians 2:8,9
  • "...He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy." Titus 3:5a

Jesus died on the cross for you and took the penalty for your sins:

  • "For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God." 1 Peter 3:18
  • "God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God." 2 Corinthians 5:21

Only Jesus can save you:

  • "Jesus answered, I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." John 14:6
  • "Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved." Acts 4:12
Will Jesus save me now just as I am?

yes! God's Word says:

  • "But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
  • "That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord', and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9
How can I receive Jesus as my Savior?

it's as simple as:

  • Admit your need (I am a sinner)
  • Be willing to turn from your sins
  • Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the Cross and rose from the grave
  • Invite Jesus Christ to come into your life as your Lord and Savior
How should I pray to receive Salvation through Christ Jesus?

dear Lord Jesus,

I know that I am a sinner and that I need Your forgiveness. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins and giving me eternal life. I now ask you to come into my heart and my life as Lord and Savior and make me the kind of person you want me to be.

Can I know that I have Eternal Life?

yes! God's Word says:

  • "And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life." 1 John 5:11-13
