How to begin a relationship with God
A. Admit: Step 1 is to Admit you have sinned.
Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." God makes it clear in His Word(Bible) that no sin can enter heaven. There had to be a way made for us, because we all broke His laws by breaking 10 commandments(not suggestions).
B. Believe: Step 2 is to Believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross to save you and arose again 3 days later. Jesus laid down His life as the Lamb of God. He drank the cup of God's wrath filled with the sins of the world. He was beaten, spit on, rejected, cut open by ropes with glass and bones attached to it and it pulled skin off Jesus violently. He suffered a horrible death and never sinned. He became sin for us to buy as back before God. That is love. As Jesus hung on cross high for all to see, it was almost impossible to even see a human being there because He was so bloody and torn apart. The crown of thorns was on his head to symbolize His kingship, but they laughed at Him. Yet, He is king of kings. He didn't allow anyone to stop the abuse to His body, He allowed this to happen for the price of souls. He is and was God, He could have. After He died...3 days later he was raised from the dead. Oh thank God!!!! Jesus is alive!!! That is why I write this to you, friend. I am witness that Jesus is alive. (Read my story or watch my video testimony.)
1 Peter 2:24 "Who His own self(Jesus) bare our sins in His own body on the tree that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness; by whose stripes ye were healed."
C. Confess: Step 3 is to Confess and Cry out to Jesus
1 John 1:9 "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness."
Romans 10:9-11 "If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
Friend, God wants to save you or He wouldn't have made an awesome plan. This is Great News!!! He paid the price. All we have to do is Admit, believe, confess and allow Jesus to have ownership of our lives. Sometimes it is easy, sometimes it gets hard. It is a marriage vow to Jesus. He is the bridegroom and His church is the bride. He tells us there is going to be a wedding feast and we must prepare. Repent and Believe the Gospel today!!! Is it a better life? Yes...my mind is clear and I have a God who loves me all the time. He will never quit loving me, ever ever ever. His love is amazing. Come to Jesus!!!
Please pray this prayer to start a new life with God only if you are going to allow Him to be Lord(many want a savior and get out of hell card, so count the costs. First...): God forgive me. I know I am a sinner. I submit myself to you as Lord. Jesus, I believe You died for my sins and arose again 3 days later. Save me and wash me clean. Fill me with your precious Holy Spirit. Lead me, guide me and be my best friend in Jesus name, amen.
If you prayed this prayer(or one like it in your own words) and meant it, you are born again. Get in church, read bible, fellowship with believers, tell others about what Jesus did for you and talk to the Lord. I believe if God can direct you to a website to get saved, He can lead you to the right church. Write me if you want to tell your story or have any more questions. Thank you and God bless you.
