This may be the most important question, because – in a way – you’ve already decided. If you haven’t accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior, you are even now rejecting God. Good deeds and religious activities will never bring you forgiveness or peace with God, because they cannot “undo” the wrong things you have done. The penalty for those wrong decisions must be paid. Accepting Jesus Christ is the only way to have peace with God, forgiveness for all that you’ve done wrong, and the strength that comes with His help in your life.
Do you want peace with God?
Today, you can receive God’s forgiveness and the promise of life and friendship which will never end. But you must make a serious decision. God is waiting for you to …
Confess that you have done wrong things (confession is simply agreeing with God that you need His forgiveness and help.)
Understand that Jesus Christ died to pay the penalty for your sin (God raised Jesus from the dead to show that He had accepted Jesus’ payment for you.)
Trust Jesus Christ to come into your life, forgive your sins, and help you to become the person He created you to be.
If you are ready to accept God’s authority and forgiveness, you can express your decision with this prayer.
Dear God, I know that I have done wrong. I need your forgiveness. I want to be the person You created me to be. I believe that Jesus died to pay the penalty for the many things I have done wrong, and that He came back to life to show His power over sin and death. I know that You have forgiven me because of His sacrifice and not for any good thing that I have done. Right now, I put my trust in Jesus and invite Him to come into my life. Thank You for creating me, loving me, forgiving me and giving me a new life. Amen.
