Our Response: Receive Christ
We must trust Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and receive Him by personal invitation.
The Bible says...
"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door,
I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." Revelation 3:20
"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:" John 1:12
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine
heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." Romans 10:9
Where are you?
Will you receive Jesus Christ right now?
Here is how you can receive Christ:
1.Admit your need (I am a sinner).
2.Be willing to turn from your sins (repent).
3.Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the Cross and rose from the grave.
4.Through prayer, invite Jesus Christ to come in and control your life through the
Holy Spirit. (Receive Him as Lord and Savior.)
How to Pray:
Pray in your own words
Dear Lord Jesus,
I know that I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness. I believe that You died for my sins.
I want to turn from my sins. I now invite You to come into my heart and life. I want
to trust and follow You as Lord and Savior.
In Jesus' name. Amen.
God's Assurance: His Word
If you prayed this prayer,
The Bible says...
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:13
Did you sincerely ask Jesus Christ to come into your life? Where is He right now?
What has He given you?
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast." Ephesians 2:8,9
Receiving Christ, we are born into God's family through the supernatural work of the
Holy Spirit who indwells every believer. This is called regeneration, or the "new birth."
This is just the beginning of a wonderful new life in Christ. To deepen this relationship you should:
1. Read your Bible everyday to know Christ better.
2. Talk to God in prayer every day.
3. Tell others about Christ.
4. Worship, fellowship, and serve with other Christians in a church where Christ is preached.
5. As Christ's representative in a needy world, demonstrate your new life by your love and concern for others.
