- HOW TO KNOW JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD AND SAVIOR -
A salvation prayer, known by many Christians as a 'Sinners Prayer,' is a prayer one would say to repent from sin, ask God for forgiveness, confess belief in Jesus Christ, and accept him as Lord and Savior. Saying a salvation prayer is the first step in your personal relationship with God.
If you believe the Bible offers truth about the way of salvation, but you have not taken the step to become a Christian, it's as simple as praying this prayer. You can pray by yourself, using your own words. There is no special formula. Just pray from your heart to God, and he will save you. If you feel lost and don't know what to pray, here's a salvation prayer that you can follow:
I admit that I am a sinner. I have done many things that don't please you. I have lived my life for myself only. I am sorry, and I repent. I ask You to forgive me.
I believe that You died on the cross for me to save me. You did what I could not do for myself. I come to You now and ask you to take control of my life; I give it to You. From this day forward, help me to live every day for You and in a way that pleases You.
I love you, Lord, and I thank You that I will spend all eternity with You.
If you have just prayed this prayer, congratulations!:))
You have received Christ as your Savior and have made the best decision you will ever make—one that will change your life forever!
Did you know a person can have 20/20 vision and yet be nearsighted spiritually? That's what happens when someone pursues short-term desires instead of the qualities God values: faith, virtue, self-control, steadfastness, godliness, brotherly affection, and love (2 Pet. 1:5-7). Biblical stories about spiritually shortsighted people caution us against sacrificing future blessings for more immediate gratification.
Take Saul, for instance: He was Israel's first king, but when he decided his way was better than God's, the Lord took his kingdom away and gave it to David (1 Sam. 15:1-28). And, sadly, David himself is another example. He had been faithful for many years but in a moment of weakness made a devastating choice: His desire for Bathsheba led him to commit both adultery and murder. Although he repented and was forgiven, the consequences of his sin impacted the rest of his life (2 Sam. 12:7-14).
To avoid the kind of mistakes these men made, we need to prioritize God's long-term goals for us. In other words, we must cherish the eternal over the temporal and strengthen our faith with godly virtues.
-Come unto me, all ye that labor . . .
—Matthew 11:28 -
The mark of a true Christian is found in his personal relationship to the Person of Jesus Christ. Christianity is Christ. Christ is Christianity. I speak reverently when I say that Jesus is more than His ideas. All that He said was true, but without Him even the truth would have been powerless. Men know the power of truth, and truth is that which sets men free. Jesus said, “I am the truth.”
-Prayer for the day-
Thank You, Jesus, for the shackles that have been broken in my life!
-Lord Jesus, as You sat looking over Jerusalem, You wept.
Give me the same compassion for those who have not accepted Your remedy and been BORN AGAIN.
-SALVATION IS FOR TODAY,SEEK THE LORD WHILE HE MAY BE FOUND.NO ONE IS PROMISED TOMORROW.
- Bless is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord.
"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power."
