HOW TO ASK JESUS TO BE YOUR SAVIOR
God made you. And God loves you!
No one lives a perfect life or does everything they should. Everyone needs forgiveness.
For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)
Everyone deserves to be punished. We've all failed to love God and others. We need God's gift of Jesus.
For all have sinned; all fall short of God's glorious standard. (Romans 3:23)
God sent Jesus to take our punishment and die for us.
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23)
Jesus came alive and rose from the dead.
But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. (Romans 5:8)
Open the door of your heart to Jesus.
Jesus said, "Look! Here I stand at the door and knock. If you hear me calling and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal as friends." (Revelation 3:20)
You can pray a prayer similar to this one:
Thank you, Jesus, for dying on the cross for me. Please forgive all I've done wrong. Come into my life
As soon as you ask Jesus for his forgiveness, you can be sure he forgives you. Trust God's promise that Jesus is your Savior and that you have a home in heaven.
For if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9)
