How To Accept Jesus As Savior
This page is for those who want to give their life to the Lord and to have him come into your heart and be your Savior. Before saying the prayer and asking Him into your life, here are some scriptures of assurance.
Romans 10:9 – 9That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
1 Peter 3:18 – 18For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God.
Romans 5:8 – 8But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
John 1:12 – 12Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—
To accept the Lord is just a matter of starting with a sinners prayer.
I know that I am a sinner and you died for me. I accept your sacrifice, please forgive me. I want you to come into my life and be my Savior and Lord.
In your precious name Lord Jesus, Amen.
Next, I think it’s very important that you read the Parable of the Sower. So many people accept Jesus and then fall away. Here is the parable.
Matthew 13:1-9 – 1That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake. 2Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore. 3Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. 5Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. 6But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. 7Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. 8Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. 9He who has ears, let him hear.”
Mathew 13:18-23 – 18“Listen then to what the parable of the sower means: 19When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is the seed sown along the path. 20The one who received the seed that fell on rocky places is the man who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. 21But since he has no root, he lasts only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, he quickly falls away. 22The one who received the seed that fell among the thorns is the man who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke it, making it unfruitful. 23But the one who received the seed that fell on good soil is the man who hears the word and understands it. He produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.”
As you can see, many people have fallen into the first three categories of the parable of the sower.
Make it a goal right now to read the Word of God. I encourage you to get a One Year Bible and make it a priority to get through it as soon as you can. Tell God, I am not going to stand in front of you without reading the Bible from front to back at least once in my life. Also NOTHING will get you closer to God and make you more knowledgeable than reading His Word. The more you learn, the more you will be able to share with others.
Also pray to God and Jesus like they are your best friends (they are, even if one doesn’t recognize it). Talk to them in prayer unceasingly. Give thanks to them for everything.
If you did give your life to the Lord after reading this page, Please share a comment and let me know.
