How to become a Christian

Jesus paid the price for your sins when He died on the cross - The Bible further says in Romans 6:23b, "...but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord" and in Romans 5:8: "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Now I've got some good news! The Bible says, " The gift of God is eternal life through in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 6:23). God wants to give you His forgiveness as a gift. You cannot work for a gift. If you work for it, then it would be wages. Don't ever confuse a gift with something you work for. God is offering salvation as a free gift (Ephesians 2:8,9; Titus 3:5). We earn hell. Heaven is a gift. Eternal life is what God wants to give you through Jesus Christ. Do you believe that Jesus died on the cross for you? The third thing that you must understand to go to heaven is that Jesus paid the price for your personal sin when He died on the cross. Now let's notice the fourth and final thing you must know and understand to go to heaven:

If you ask Jesus for forgiveness, you will be saved. - The Bible says in Romans 10:9-13: "That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. 11 As the Scripture says, 'Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame.' 12 For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile-the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, 13 for, 'Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.'" We receive God's free gift of eternal life by simply asking God for it. "Whosoever" means you (Romans 10:13). If you will call on the name of the Lord in prayer, confessing your sins and asking for forgiveness, you will be forgiven! Do you believe that if you prayed right now and asked Christ to forgive you that He would? Salvation is not something you do but someone you receive (John 17:3). You may ask, "Bro. Jeff, how do I receive Jesus into my life?" All you must do is pray a prayer in humility and earnestness similar to this: "Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe you died for my sins. Right now, I turn from my sins and trust You alone to save me. Help me to live for you from this moment on. Thank you for saving me. In Jesus name I pray. Amen." These words are not a magic formula that will save you like a magician would say, "Hocus-Pocus" or "Presto-Chango" and a trick is performed. If you have prayed this prayer with sincerity, then I assure you God has saved you, forgiven all your sins, and has given you eternal life (John 6:37). Jesus promised: John 1:12: "Yet to all who received him [Jesus], to those that believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God." If you have prayed to receive Christ as your personal Savior, I encourage you to contact me so that I can rejoice with you!
