How to Meet Jesus

DO YOU KNOW JESUS?

Dear reader, do you know Jesus as your Lord and Savior? If you haven’t yet surrendered your life to Jesus Christ, I want to invite you to do so now. The Bible tells us “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). In other words, every human being in the world has broken God’s commandments, including you and me. The Bible also tells us that “the wages of sin is death.” (Romans 6:23). That means that the penalty for our breaking God’s law is death, or eternal separation from God in a place called hell.

That’s the bad news.

However, the Good News is that you don’t have to be punished for your sins, because Jesus has taken your place. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” That tells us that God loves us and wants to save us from our sins! How can we meet Jesus as our Lord and Savior? “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9).

If you would like to make your peace with God, and give your life to Jesus, pray this prayer out loud right now:

Heavenly Father, I admit that I am a sinner. I have broken your commandments, and I deserve to be punished for my sins. However, I believe that you loved me so much that you sent Jesus to die for my sins. I believe that He is the Son of God, that He died on the Cross, and three days later He came back to life. I confess my sins to you, and ask you to forgive me of all of the wrong things that I have done, and to cleanse me from all unrighteousness. Please come into my life and make me a new person. I make the decision today to follow You all the days of my life. Thank you for adopting me into Your family. In Jesus’ name, amen.

If you prayed that prayer from a believing heart, the Bible says that you have been born again, adopted into God’s family! I want to encourage you now to find a good local church that preaches the Bible, and tell someone about the decision that you have just made. Start reading the Bible. Talk to God in prayer every day. And get baptized in water as soon as possible.

And, if you would be so kind, would you please send me an e-mail and tell me about the decision that you have made? I would love to be able to rejoice with you, and personally welcome you into the family of God. Take the time today to thank God for His indescribable gift.

    Hello! I’ve been saved for 107 days now, and I wanted to just be reborn or have another cleansing. I saw a picture of Jesus in red and the angels in white for when the rapture will take place and I felt an uncomfortable, maybe nervous or something, feeling in my stomach. I want nothing but to be with Him and I want to make sure I stay clean and righteous for God so I can live that dream when the time comes. I pray for family and friends everyday, repent, and I thank Him for what He does in my life because He has been the best blessing in my life. Thank you for putting this up. I’ll be sure to save this and share with friends. God bless you!
