Step 1 – Understand God’s Purpose for your life
God loves you and wants you to experience peace and life, Abundant and Eternal.
"We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ." Romans 5:1
"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." John 3:16
Step 2 – Understand We Are Separated from God
We choose to disobey God and go our own way. We still make this choice today. This results in separation from God.
"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23
Step 3 – Understand that the Cure is the Cross
Jesus Christ is the only answer to this problem "But God demonstrated His own love for us in this: while we were sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
God has provided the way; we still must make the choice!
Step 4 – Understand we must receive Jesus Christ to be Saved
We trust Jesus Christ and receive Him by our personal invitation.
"But as many as received Him, to them He gave the power to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name." St. John 1:12
... And Finally: Step 5 – Understand and pray the Prayer of Salvation:
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 my Lord and Savior.
In Jesus name, Amen
