Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again. – John 3:3
Have you ever wondered what it means to give your life to Christ or how to become born again or what it means to be saved?
Romans 10:9-10 says: “If you declare 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 profess your faith and are saved.”
All you have to do is to ask Jesus Christ to come into your heart and pray this prayer with utmost sincerity:
Almighty God, I am a sinner. Please forgive me of my sins. I confess with my mouth that Jesus Christ shed His blood, died for me and rose again on the third day. From this very moment, I confess that you are my Lord and Savior. Thank you for coming into my life. I ask you to fill me with Your love so that I won’t fall back into my old ways. Please direct me to believers who will help me grow and stay accountable. I ask all of these in the name of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Amen.
If this is your first time saying this kind of prayer, congratulations! You are now born-again. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”
Please find a bible-believing church in your area (a church that teaches the Word of God, no additions or subtractions) and plug into it. It is important that you fellowship with like-believers so that you can grow in the knowledge and application of God’s Word.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. – John 3:16-18 NIV
