If you are reading this and you are not absolutely certain that you are saved, then this page is the most important part of your visiting our website! The Bible contains everything you need to know about God's plan for salvation, and it is a very important process of steps to take.
Realization #1 - We must realize that “We are all sinners and we fall short of God’s glorious standard.” (Romans 3:23 NLT) The word sin means to miss the mark. Whether big or small; whether in our words, thoughts or actions, we have all failed to meet God’s standard of perfection. “No one is righteous, not even one.” (Romans 3:10 NLT)
Realization #2 - We must realize that the penalty for our sin is death and eternal separation from God (Romans 6:23 NLT). This is nothing to scare you off, so please keep reading because there is a way of escape from this.
Realization #3 - We must realize that we need God to help us out of this situation. There is absolutely nothing we can do to change this. Therefore, “God’s free gift to mankind is eternal life through His Son Jesus Christ (Romans 6:23b NLT)." In other words, Jesus did for us what we could not do for ourselves. He paid the penalty for our sins and made a way for us to have a right relationship with God the Father.
The way that God gave us this gift is by sending Jesus to the earth to die on the cross for our sins. God loved us this much, that He would come and die for us - sinful people. Wow! That's love!
Realization #4 - We must realize that there is absolutely nothing good about us that caused us to be saved. It's not because I don't do bad things, it's not because I do a lot of good things. Ephesians 2:8 says “we are saved by God’s grace when we believe. We cannot take credit for this; it is a gift from God.” God gave us a gift, which means we did nothing to earn it, therefore, we have no room to take credit for the great salvation God provided us to have.
We accept this gift by believing in Jesus, asking Him into our hearts, and giving Him permission to be the Lord of our lives. If you are serious with God (since you are still reading this, I believe that you are), today is your day to accept the best gift you will ever receive.
**Pray this prayer from the depths of your heart if you want to be right with God and sure about where you will spend eternity.
Dear Lord Jesus. I come to you in need of salvation. I realize that I have sinned and I no longer want to live for myself, but I want to live for you. I confess with my mouth that you are my Lord and King. I believe in my heart that you died for my sins and that God raised you from the dead. I receive you into my heart. I thank you for forgiving me of my sins and making me right with you. Teach me to be more like you and to live for you each day. In your name I pray. Amen.
Congratulations! That’s it. That’s all it takes to become right with God. The Bible assures us that “whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13) You are now born again, and you are right with God.
