What must I do to be saved? And how do I find Christ?
First you must recognize that you need Him, that you are a sinner. The Bible says in Romans 3:23 “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” We have all sinned and because we have sinned we require the blood of Jesus Christ to cleanse us from our sin. Our morals, our goodness, our acts of kindness, cannot save us. The Bible says we must confess our sin, for if we do God is faithful and just to forgive us of our sin and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. You must believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. You must accept Him, and Him alone as your Savior, make Him the Lord of your life, and follow Him with all of your heart, mind, soul, and strength as long as you live. You must not listen to the voice of the enemy who will tell, “You’re not good enough, you’re not worthy, you’ve sinned too deeply.” You must believe that God can save to the uttermost; it makes no difference what you have done, He can save you. God loves each one of us, even though we are sinners. God demonstrates His love for us by this, that while we are still sinners He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ to die for us. The Bible says that the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord. The Bible says “For by grace are you saved through faith, not of yourself, it is the gift of God, not of works lest any man should boast.” You can’t get to heaven by being good. There must be the repentance of sin, which means to turn away from your sin. You must believe and confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead; for it is with your heart that you believe and are justified and with your mouth that you confess your sin and are saved. The result is salvation; for everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved. Salvation is found in no other name than the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Word says that whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. Eternal salvation through Jesus Christ is only a prayer away.
Now is the time to give your heart and life to Jesus. Please pray these words out loud:
Dear God in heaven, I confess that I am a sinner. I ask you to forgive me of my sin and to cleanse me from all unrighteousness. I realize that I am in need of salvation through Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus died on the cross for my sins and that You have raised Him from the dead. Come into my heart and be the Lord of my life today and I will serve you, I will obey you, I will read your word and I will follow Jesus all the days of my life. Jesus, you are my Lord and my Savior and I am your servant. I believe that right now, I AM SAVED!
In that simple prayer, you have stepped from death into life. You have become a member of the family of the Lord Jesus Christ. I encourage you now to find a church where the Word of God is preached, begin to study the Bible daily, enter into a daily prayer life, be baptized in water and with the Holy Spirit. And begin to share your testimony of salvation through Jesus Christ with others.
God bless you and congratulations on your new life in Christ!
