"....Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and
with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength:
this is the first commandment." Mark 12:30
Counting the Cost
Repentance: Since you have recognized your need for Jesus as your Savior,
The next step is called repentance. That means to be so very sorry
for your sin that you are willing to turn totally away from it. (This kind
of sorrow comes from realizing that your sin has offended God - not just
because you "got caught" in a bad circumstance!)
True repentance means that you stop going your own way -
and doing your own thing, and begin to follow God's way.
That is making Jesus your Lord as well as your Savior.
If your repentance is REAL - Here is the Good News!
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins,
and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9)
If you are truly willing to change,
God will empower that change in you through the working of His Holy Spirit.
Receive: This is it!
If you are ready to make a serious commitment to Jesus Christ,
".... with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with
all thy strength...." Mark 12:30
If you are willing to stop going your own way and begin to live God's way.
If you are ready to confess before others that Jesus Christ is your Lord,
"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.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth
confession is made unto salvation." (Romans 10:9-10)
then pray a prayer like this one:
Dear Father in Heaven, Thank you for sending the Lord Jesus Christ to die
on the cross for MY sin. Please forgive me of all I have ever said or done that
you have called "sin". I take you at Your Word that you will forgive all who ask.
I believe that Jesus died for me, that He was buried and that you raised Him
from the dead. I ask Jesus to be my Lord, as well as my Savior. I surrender
myself to Him, totally. Thank you Lord that I am now saved, and can call myself,
your child. Amen.
