What a wonderful question and I am so happy you are interested in giving your life to Christ. It’s not an easy decision but it’s the best life you can have and the greatest life changing decision you will ever make.
Jesus took all of our sins with Him to the cross. When He died, He took all of our sins, past, present, and future, with Him. Then when He rose from the dead, He showed that He conquered death, and that we too can have have an eternal life with Him.
So, when you give your life to Christ by repenting of your sins, accepting Jesus as your lord and savior, and inviting Him into your heart, you are freed from an eternity separated from God (who cannot be with sin) and instead are granted salvation and eternal life. You are saved.
While still on earth, you will see that He will slowly, over time, transform you into His likeness. Things that used to seem important to you, earthly things, will no longer dictate how you live. You will have immense joy and a burning desire to live a life worthy of His praise. It is an amazing and indescribable feeling but one you will want to share with everyone you know.
Isn’t that great news! If you are looking to take this step, I would recommend finding a local fellowship or community type Christian church and talking to one of the pastors. If you need help finding one, you can contact anyone at The Church of Jerusalem and the Christian Nation on google+ or facebook, where a friendly person will help point you in the right direction.
The Salvation Prayer.
You give your life to Christ by confessing that Jesus Christ is Lord and that he died and rose again. Here’s how you do it, just say these words out loud.
Dear God in heaven, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I acknowledge to You that I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins and the life that I have lived; I need your forgiveness.
I believe that your only begotten Son Jesus Christ shed His precious blood on the cross at Calvary and died for my sins, and I am now willing to turn from my sin.
You said in Your Holy Word, Romans 10:9 that if we confess the Lord our God and believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved.
Right now I confess Jesus as the Lord of my soul. With my heart, I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. This very moment I accept Jesus Christ as my own personal Savior and according to His Word, right now I am saved.
Thank you Jesus for your unlimited grace which has saved me from my sins. I thank you Jesus that your grace never leads to license, but rather it always leads to repentance. Therefore Lord Jesus transform my life so that I may bring glory and honor to you alone and not to myself.
Thank you Jesus for dying for me and giving me eternal life. AMEN.”
