God's word says...
Jesus is “the Savior, Messiah, Son of the Living God” (Matthew 16:16). Jesus is God's son, man's Savior & mankind's only way to heaven. Jesus is the Christ, Anointed One from heaven, our healer, prince of peace, miracle-working power, devil destroyer and redeemer of punishment as sinners!
To be made whole, or to be saved, is to submit to God and His plan and purpose for our lives. It is a turning from our ways and turning to Jesus, to ask Him for forgiveness from our sins and to give us new life in Him. Romans 10:9 says: “If you declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
Salvation in Jesus is God’s free gift to us and we become God's children. By grace, It is an irrevocable acceptance into the family of God and it is an empowerment to live a life wholly and fully with the purpose of reflecting God to the rest of His creation. When we believe and receive Jesus by faith as our Lord and Savior, we become Born Again with His Spirit!
If you are not sure whether you are right with God or you know in fact that you need Jesus in your life, you can choose to follow Him right now by praying a prayer of surrender to Jesus:
(Speak this prayer out loud): "Dear Christ Jesus, I’m praying this prayer because I know that I have done wrong by living without You. I am sorry and I trust that You will forgive me. I accept Your love and grace for me and ask that You would be my Lord. Help me believe in You, follow You and love You every day. Help me to show the world what You are like and how great Your love is. In Christ Jesus' name. Amen.
Congratulations! To pray these words with a surrendered heart to Jesus is the beginning of the most important voyage you will ever make: the journey to follow Jesus. Please let us know if you’ve just made a commitment to follow Jesus, visit us or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
