How You Can Have A Relationship With God
Admit that God has not been first place in your life and ask him to forgive your sins.
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from every wrong.” I John 1:9
Believe that Jesus died to pay for your sins and that he rose again, and is alive today.
“If you confess that Jesus is your Lord, and you believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
Receive God’s free gift of salvation, don’t try to earn it.
“For it is by grace you are saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.” Ephesians 2:8,9
Our relationship with God is not restored by anything we do, but on the basis of what Jesus already has done for us!
“Whoever calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved” Romans 10:13
Invite Jesus Christ to come into your life and be the director (“Lord”) of your life.
“To all who receive him, he gives the right to become children of God. All we need to do is to trust him to save us. All those who believe this are reborn! – not a physical rebirth…but from the will of God.” John 1:12-13
You can take these steps by praying a simple prayer of commitment to God something like this:
“Dear Jesus, thank you for making me and loving me, even when I’ve ignored you and gone my own way. I realize I need you in my life and I’m sorry for my sins. I ask you to forgive me. Thank you for dying on the cross for me. Please help me to understand it more. Please come into my life and make me a new person inside. I accept your gift of salvation. I want to follow you from now on. Please help me to grow now as a Christian.”
