|How Do I Become Saved?
Romans 10:9-10 "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. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved."
God loves you very much. He loves you so much that he sent His son Jesus to die on the Cross for your sins. Sins are the things that we do that are wrong. Sin began when Adam and Eve decided to disobey God.
Genesis 1:27 "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them."
Adam and Eve disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden. They were told that they could eat of every tree in the Garden, but not from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Satan came to Eve as a serpent to tempt her. He told Eve that she would be like God if she ate the fruit. Satan told her that God didn't want her to know what God knows. She gave in and ate. She gave the fruit to Adam and he also ate. They instantly knew they had done something wrong. Adam and Eve hid from God. God asked them why they were hiding. After God confronted them, he sent the out of the Garden clothed in animal skins. This was the first death.
Genesis 3:21 "The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them."
Those animals that were sacrificed were the first for the covering of sin. God was still with them, but didn't commune with them in the same way. Jesus became the bridge between you and God.
John 14:6 "Jesus answered: "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
If you are ready to take Jesus as your Savior and Lord, say this prayer to yourself.
Jesus, I believe that I am a sinner. My sin has made me follow a path of unrighteousness. I believe you died on the Cross for forgiveness of all my sin, past, present and future. You rose again and are now in Heaven preparing a place for me. I give my life to you. Come into my heart and live with me forever. Amen.
If you prayed that prayer, you will be in heaven when you die. If you are alive when Jesus comes back for the saved, your body will instantly be transformed to dwell in Heaven. You have so much to look forward to in Paradise. Congratulations!
