REALIZE YOU ARE A SINNER
The Bible teaches that every person is born in a state of sin which is an attitude that resists God’s will and causes us to avoid Him. We can’t make excuses or blame others and our circumstances for our actions. Romans 3:23 says, “Everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.”
RECOGNIZE JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR YOU
Jesus was crucified to take care of our sin problem. Romans 6:33 says “The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.” The penalty for our sins is being eternally separated from God. Jesus took the penalty of our sins upon Himself. 1 Peter 3:18 says, “Christ suffered for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but he died for sinners to bring you safely home to God.” Jesus paid the price for your sins.
REPENT OF YOUR SINS
The word “repent” means “to change your direction.” The Bible tells us in Acts 3:19, “Repent of your sins and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away.” You must be willing to turn away from the things that displease God, stop trying to avoid Him and invite Him into your life.
RECEIVE JESUS AS YOUR SAVIOR AND LORD
John 1:12 say, “To all who believed Him and accepted Him, He gave the right to become children of God.” It is essential that you come to Jesus as you are. Don’t try to “clean up your life” before you come to Jesus. Instead, receive Him and allow Him to work in your life starting today.
If you have chosen to accept Christ as your Lord and Savior, let us be among the first to say “CONGRATULATIONS!” You have just made the best decision of your life!
