What Must I Do to Accept Jesus Christ as my Savior?
Why Do I Need a Savior?
Because all have sinned and were born separated from God. Without intervention, we are ineligible for Heaven. This applies to the entire human race. You are not alone.
Romans 3:23 says, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"
Romans 3:10 says, "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:"
Romans 6:23 says "For the wages of sin is death;"
Revelation 21:8 "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers,
and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in
the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone:"
There is no amount of good works we can do to save ourselves from being eternally separated from God.
Ephesians 2:8-9 say, "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the
gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast."
To be separated from God forever, simply do nothing. To ignore or reject God's Son, Jesus Christ, is the only sin that can keep a person out of Heaven and the only alternative to Heaven is eternal torment in the Lake of Fire (Revelation 20:15, 2 Thessalonians. 1:7-9).
John 3:18 "He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned
already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."
But there is good news!
Accepting Jesus Christ as Your Savior
Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection was what was needed to pay my debt I owed for my sins.
John 14:6, "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
John 3:16-17, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever
believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his
Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be
The Bible tell us how to be saved:
Romans 10:9-10 "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in
thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For
with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
Romans 6:23 "but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
Romans 10:13 "Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
Are you ready to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior?
If so, simply tell God what he asked you to confess. You might pray a prayer similar to the one below:
"God, I am a sinner and I believe Jesus died on the cross for me, that he was buried and rose again on the third day. Jesus come into my heart and be my Savior. Amen"
