Salvation


My friend, believe God for the good life - the abundant life Jesus came to give us.
And right now, wherever you are, I want you to know that God loves you, He loves you so much.

Receive all that Christ has done - for you - at the Cross.  Jesus died in your place, because He loved you.  All that was due you - fell on Jesus, so that all that He deserves would come on you.

This divine exchange between you and Jesus
is a proclamation of God's love, His undying love,
His eternal love for you and I.

And love waits to be accepted.

But if you turn your back on this love, it cannot help you.

Love waits to be accepted, then it will benefit you.

Surrender to the one who loves you, won't you?

 For God So Loved  (John 3:16)

16) For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son,
that everyone who believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.

17) For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world,
but to save the world through Him.

the Prayer of Salvation - Your First  Real  Conversation With God

 

If you already know that you want Jesus to come into your heart and be your Lord and Savior, say this simple prayer with us:

  • Heavenly Father,
  • I thank you for your love for me.
  • I thank you for sending your Son, Jesus to die on the Cross for all my sins.
  • You raised Him from the dead as a declaration that all my sins are put away.
  • Jesus Christ is now my Lord and my Savior.
  • And I thank you Father, that all my sins are forgiven and I'm a brand New Creation.
  • In Jesus name... Amen.

Friend, if you meant what you just said,
you are now Born Again - a New Creation!

You are now a follower of Jesus.
This is a fact, whether or not you feel any different.

Your life will never be the same!

The simple "prayer of Salvation"
is the most important prayer you'll ever pray.

When you learn about God and His great love for you,
and you are ready and want to become a Christian,
you will be ready to have your first
real conversation with God.

Below are some reasons why you will want
to have a conversation and a relationship with God,
and what you will want to do and say,
to have that relationship with Him:


 Salvation will happen when
we acknowledge and believe:

  • that Jesus Christ is both fully God and fully man.
  • that He came to earth as a man in order to live the sinless life that we cannot live.
  • that He died in our place on the cross, so that we would not have to pay the penalty we deserve.
  • that He has the power to take away our sin and to personally take our punishment upon Himself.
  • that His punishment as us was perfect and complete, and fully satisfied God's penalty for sin.
     
  • We admit our past life of sin - living for ourselves and not obeying or caring about God.  And we realize that no matter how hard we try, we will never be able to keep God's Laws perfectly.
  • We now see that we need a savior, we need Jesus. That's why He came, He came for ME personally.
     
  • We want, and are ready to trust Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord. (even tho we're not sure how, yet)
     
  • Then we ask Jesus to come into our heart, take up residence there, and begin living through us.  And He will...
     
  • As we learn more of what the Bible says about Jesus and Grace, our hope and faith will truly be:
     
    • that Jesus has the power to take away our sins.
    • that we will never be punished for sin - past, present, or future - because Father God justly punished Lord Jesus on the cross for every sin, including ours, once and for all time.
    • in the free gift of righteousness we don't deserve, yet it is ours forever.
    • in the promise that the "old man" we once were has now passed away - gone forever.
    • that we are a New Creation and are now called sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father.
    • that His Spirit will begin transforming us into the image of our Lord and Savior, Jesus, as we keep our eyes and thoughts on Him.

 


 

Prayer of Salvation - It Begins With Faith in God

 

  • When you pray the prayer of salvation, you're letting God know you believe His Word is true.  By the faith He has given us, we choose to believe in Him.
  • The Bible tells us that "without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that HE IS, and that HE IS a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him." (Hebrews 11:6)
  • So, when you pray, asking God for the gift of salvation, you're exercising your free will to acknowledge that you believe in Him, and believe in His Beloved Son Jesus as your Savior.
  • That demonstration of faith pleases God, because you have freely chosen to know Him, and trust in Jesus.

 


 

Prayer of Salvation - Confessing Your Sin

 

  • When you pray the prayer of salvation, you're admitting that you've sinned.  As the Bible says of everyone, save Christ alone: "For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God."(Romans 3:23)
     
  • To sin is simply to fall short of the mark, as an arrow that does not quite hit the bull's-eye.  Sometimes we are not even trying to hit the target - or we are trying to hit the wrong target on purpose.  The glory of God that we fall short of, is found only in Jesus Christ: "For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ." (2 Corinthians 4:6)
     
  • The prayer of salvation, then, recognizes that Jesus Christ is the only human who ever lived without sin.  "For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him." (2 Corinthians 5:21)

 


 

Prayer of Salvation - Professing Faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord

 

  • With Christ as our standard of perfection, we're now acknowledging faith in Him as God, agreeing with the Apostle John that: "In the beginning was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was in the beginning with God.  All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made." (John 1:1-3)
     
  • Because God could only accept a perfect, sinless sacrifice, and because He knew that we could not possibly accomplish that, He sent His Son to die for us and pay the eternal price.  "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.." (John 3:16)

 


 

the  Prayer of Salvation - Are You Ready To Say It & Mean It? ...


Do you agree with everything you have read so far?  If you do... don't wait a moment longer to start your new life in Jesus Christ...  Pray this with us:

 

"Father... I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you.  I am truly sorry, and I need help.  I want to turn away from my past sinful life and turn toward you.  Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again.

I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer.  I invite you, Jesus, to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward.

Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life.  In Jesus' name I pray, Amen."

 


 

Prayer of Salvation - I've Prayed It - Now What?

 

  • If you've prayed this prayer of salvation, and if you meant what you just said,
    you are now Born Again - a New Creation!  You are now a follower of Jesus.  This is a fact, whether or not you feel any different.
     
  • Religious systems may have led you to believe that you should feel something - a warm glow, a tingle, or some other mystical experience.  The fact is, you may, or you may not.
     
  • If you have prayed the prayer of salvation and meant it, you are now a follower of Jesus.  The Bible tells us that your eternal salvation is secure!  "that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."(Romans 10:9)
