Knowing God through Jesus Christ is the greatest experience a person can have in this life and the life to come beyond the grave.
Below is a guideline for receiving Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, gaining forgiveness for your sins, becoming a new “reborn” person, and having assurance of your salvation.
To Receive Jesus in your heart and inherit eternal life:
- Know that God loves you and created you to know Him personally. He has a wonderful plan for your life. “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)
- People are sinful and separated from God, so we cannot know Him personally or experience His love or plan. For all have sinned; all fall short of God’s glorious standard. (Romans 3:23)
- Jesus Christ is God’s only provision for our sin. Through Him we can know and experience God’s love and His purpose for our life. But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. (Romans 5:8)
- We must individually receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord; then we can know and experience God’s love and His will for our lives. 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)
You can pray a genuine prayer making Jesus the Lord and Savior of your life, and have assurance of your salvation through faith in God and the power of the Holy Spirit.
