If you’ve never made Jesus Christ the Lord of your life:
This is your highest priority right now. It is very simple to do and I want to help you do it. The Bible says that we all must admit that we are sinners and need to be saved from our sins. There is no one other than Jesus Christ that can save you. It took Him dying on the cross and being raised from the dead to purchase our redemption and give us salvation. He has made it a free gift to every person and it is received by faith and by choosing to believe that Jesus did die and was raised again to pay for our sin. Then we are told to confess Him as our Lord and simply ask Him to come into our heart and save us, and He will. Let’s do it right now. Say these things to Jesus right now, out loud, and believe that it takes place immediately, without going by how you feel, but rather by faith.
Jesus, I confess that I am a sinner and I want to be forgiven and go to heaven. I ask you right now to forgive me and I now make you my Lord and Savior. I do believe that you were crucified and died for my salvation. I also believe that God raised you from the dead and that you are now my living Savior. Thank you for coming into my heart to live with me forever. I am now SAVED!
If you have made Jesus Christ the Lord of your life:
God wants you to know that you are now in Covenant with Him and that you have many rights, privileges, and benefits awaiting you. They are all received by faith, but each one will bless and enhance your Christian life. Jesus has not only forgiven you of sin but has redeemed you from the “curse of the law”. He is now, your healer, provider, and deliverer. It is important that you now be baptized in water to publicly attest to receiving new life in Christ and that you be filled with the Holy Ghost, “which will open your life up to the “Teaching Ministry” of the Holy Spirit and allow you to pray in other tongues. Jesus said if we would ask him, that he would baptize us with the Holy Spirit. It is received in just the same way you received Him as Savior, just pray this: Jesus, I ask you to baptize me with the Holy Ghost and I receive Him right now. Thank you for filling me with your Spirit. Once this is done, you can now pray in other tongues. Just begin to speak in prayer to God, but not in your normal language, the Holy Spirit will give you your heavenly language.
For help with any of the above, please contact us. I rejoice with you concerning you decisions today. We would love to hear from you concerning the progress you have made.
