JESUS
ACCEPTING JESUS AS YOUR SAVIOR AND LORD
In the book of John Jesus says that: “unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (John 3:3 NKJV)  What Jesus was talking about here was a spiritual rebirth, not a physical one.  The Bible makes it clear that this spiritual rebirth takes place in us when we repent* of our sin and put our sincere trust and faith in Jesus Christ as our redeemer and Savior, for He said Himself: “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die.” (John 11:25 NKJV)
*Repent means to change direction. Instead of running from God we run to God. Instead of continuing in sin we renounce sin and turn from it with the intent and desire to never sin again.
If you have decided to put you trust in Christ alone for the salvation of your soul then today is a glorious day!  Pray this prayer below in faith and accept God’s free gift ( see Ephesians 2:8) of eternal life through Jesus Christ.  If your repentance is sincere  and your faith in Christ genuine, God’s Word promises that you will be made a new creation, with the life of Christ living on the inside of you; your name will be written in the book of life, and you will be empowered to live the life God desires for you to have here on earth!
Heavenly Father, I come to you in the name of Jesus:
I here and now repent for my sins, and believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
I believe that Christ died for me, as my substitute, and rose from the dead according to the Scriptures.
Thank you God, for sending Your Son, and paying my debt in full.
Even though I was separated from You by my sins, You saw me helpless, and fallen, and loved me enough to die for me.
I believe that Jesus suffered the penalty of my sins, and paid the full price to clear my debt.
Your Word declares that His Precious Blood, sinless and Divine, pays for all of my sins.
Because He suffered my penalty, I am now free.
No sin remains to condemn me. I’m no longer guilty before You.
I believe the good news of the Cross, and Your promise that
“Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Acts 2:21)
I ask Your forgiveness, and I now receive Jesus Christ into my life as my Savior.  Jesus meets Mary
Today, I accept Your gift of love, mercy, peace and eternal life.
I declare by faith that Jesus Christ now lives in me.
I am a new creation in Christ, born of God with the life of Jesus in me.
According to Your Word, I am now forgiven, I am now saved. By His grace I can now live a victorious life over sin and continually be made into the likeness of Christ.
Amen.

Scriptures of Assurance of Salvation
1 John 5:11-13 NKJV
11 And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. 13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.
 
Rom 8:1 NKJV
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit
