Do you hear Jesus calling you? Do you hear His invitation to come to Him?
You have a choice where you can spend eternity. That choice is to accept Jesus as your personal Savior and spend eternity in heaven.
Or choose to live your life as it is now without the gift of salvation through the protection of the Lord and spend eternity in hell.
So I ask: Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? Not sure what this means or who He is? Are you asking?
Who is Jesus and what does He mean to you and what does it mean to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior?
To properly understand these questions, you must first understand the terms “Jesus Christ,” “personal,” and “Savior.”
Who is Jesus Christ? Jesus Christ as a faithful and obedient man; a great man, teacher, and prophet of God. This is the reality of who Jesus is; on the other hand they do not fully define who He truly is. The Bible tells us that Jesus is God in the flesh, God in human form (see John 1:1,14). God came to earth lead us, heal us, teach us, forgive us—and die for us that we may have life everlasting! Jesus Christ is God, the Creator, and our sovereign Lord. Accepting this Jesus seals our salvation forever, have you accepted life over death with this Jesus?
What is a Savior, and why do we need a Savior? God sent His son, Jesus to redeem us from the sin sick world that is our lives. The Bible tells us that we have all sinned; we have all committed evil acts (Romans 3:10-18). As a result of our sin, we deserve God's anger and judgment. But the love He has for us gave the greatest sacrifice ever; Jesus the Lamb of God and our Savior. The only just punishment for sins committed against an infinite and eternal God is an infinite punishment in hell (Romans 6:23;Revelation 20:11-15). That is why we need a Savior; and our Savior is Jesus!
Jesus Christ came to earth and died in our place. Jesus' death was the ultimate sacrificial payment for our sins (2 Corinthians 5:21). Jesus died to pay the penalty for our sins (Romans 5:8). Jesus paid this great price so that we would not have to. Jesus' resurrection from the dead proved that His death was sufficient to pay the penalty for our sins. That is why Jesus is the one and only Savior (John 14:6;Acts 4:12)! He is our deliverer, our conqueror and our redeemer. You can trust in Jesus for He is your Savior. Do you Trust Him?
Is Jesus your “personal” Savior? Many people view Christianity as attending church, performing rituals, and/or not committing certain sins. That is not Christianity. True Christianity is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Accepting Jesus as your personal Savior means placing your own personal faith and trust in Him. No one is saved by the faith of others. No one is forgiven by doing certain deeds. The only way to be saved is to personally accept Jesus as your Savior, trusting in His death as the payment for your sins and His resurrection as your guarantee of eternal life (John 3:16). Is Jesus personally your Savior?
If you want to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, say the following words to God. Remember, only trusting and believing in Jesus Christ and His finished work on the cross for you can save you from sin.
It is a simple prayer that expresses to God your faith in Him and offers sincere thanks Him to Him for providing salvation for you. “God, I know that I have sinned against You and deserve punishment. But I believe Jesus Christ took the punishment I deserve so that through faith in Him I could be forgiven. I receive Your offer of forgiveness and place my trust in You for salvation. I accept Jesus as my personal Savior! I Thank You for Your wonderful grace and forgiveness. I thank you for the gift of eternal life Your sacrifice has provided. I need you to come into my life today and forevermore! Amen!”
