Equipping Moms and Dads to Pray and Parent Life into the Lives of Their Children

How to Receive Jesus as Savior and Lord
For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.  John 3:16

God loves you and wants you to experience peace and life that is eternal.  Below is what you need to know and how to make that choice.
Here's what you need to know:

1.  God created each of us in his own image to have abundant life.  He did not make us robots to automatically love and obey Him.  God gave each of us a will and freedom of choice.  We chose to disobey God and go our own willful way.  We still make this choice every day.  This results in our separation from God.

The Bible says...

"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."  Romans 3:23
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."  Romans 6:23

2.  People have tried in many ways to bridge the gap between themselves and God.  They think good works, religion, philosophy and morality will get them to God. 

The Bible says...

"There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death."  Proverbs 14:12
"But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear?"  Isaiah 59:2

3.  Jesus Christ died on the Cross and rose from the grave.  He paid the penality for our sin and bridged the gap between God and people.

The Bible says...

"For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus."  1 Timothy 2:5
"For Chirst died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God."  1 Peter 3:18
"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this:  While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."  Romans 5:8

4.  We must trust Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and receive Him by personal invitation.

The Bible says...

"Here I am! I stand at the door and knock.  If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me."  Revelation 3:20
"Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God."  John 1:12
"That if you conferss with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."  Romans 10:9

Will you receive Jesus right now?

Here's how you can receive Christ:

1.  Admit your need. (I am a sinner.)

2.  Be willing to turn from your sins (repent).

3.  Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the Cross and rose from the grave.

4.  Through prayer, invite Jesus Christ to come in and control your life through the Holy Spirit.  (Receive Him as both Lord and Savior.)
How to Pray:

Dear Lord Jesus,

     I know that I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness.  I believe that You died for my sins.  I want to turn from my sins.  I now invite You to come into my heart and life.  I want to trust and follow You as Lord and Savior.   In Jesus' name, Amen!
God's Assurance:  His Word

If you prayed this prayer,

The Bible says...

"Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."  Romans 10:13

Did you sincerely ask Jesus Christ to come into your life?  Where is He right now? What has He given you?

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and not that of yourself, it is the gift of God - now by works, so that no one can boast."  Ephesians 2:8-9

The Bible says...

"He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.  I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life."  1 John 5:12-13

Receiving Christ, we are born into God's family through the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit who indwells every believer.
