Begin Following Jesus
What do you get up for in the morning? What are you looking for in life? How will you handle the really tough times?
Admit that you need a right relationship with God. Pride keeps us from doing some of the most important things in life. Don't let your pride keep you from THE most important thing in this life and the next!
The Scriptures say, "As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one..." (Romans 3:10)
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God…" (Romans 3:23)
Believe that God's Son, Jesus Christ, makes it possible for you to have a right relationship with God. There is nothing that you can do, no matter how good or great, to ever restore your relationship with God.
Confess your sin to God and accept His forgiveness. Every one of us chooses to live our lives like we want to, taking charge, ignoring God, pleasing ourselves. That's what separates us from God. That's why we need His forgiveness.
"Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins..." (Acts 13:38)
Dedicate yourself as a fully devoted follower of Christ. Receiving God's gift of forgiveness through Jesus Christ will set you in a direction exactly opposite of the one you've been going in because now you're following Christ.
"And He said to them all, if any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me..." (Luke 9:23)
Express your faith in Christ publicly. What God does for you in His Son Jesus Christ is the greatest thing that will ever happen to you. It requires a clear confession that you have given Him your very life.
"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." (Romans 10:9)
Would you like to receive this forgiveness and start a new life by trusting in Christ as your personal Savior and Lord? If so then I am going to ask you to pray this prayer:
"Dear Lord Jesus, I believe that You died on the cross for my sins and that You arose from the grave. I now ask You to forgive me of my sins and to save my soul. Lord, I now turn from my sinful life and ask You keep me in my new walk. Amen."
