How can God change my life?
No matter who you are or what you’ve done, God will receive you into His family. He will make you complete. The Bible says, “The Spirit of the Lord will come upon you in power, … and you will be changed into a different person” (1 Samue10:6).
Your life can be changed starting now:
The Bible says, “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, [Jesus Christ], that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16).Jesus said, “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly”—a complete life full of purpose (John 10:10).But here’s the problem: We have all done, thought or said bad things, which the Bible calls “sin.” The Bible says, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).The result of sin is death, spiritual separation from God (Romans 6:23).The good news?Jesus died in our place so we could have a relationship with God and be with Him forever.“God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).But it didn’t end with His death on the cross. He rose again and still lives!“Christ died for our sins.… He was buried.… He was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).Jesus is the only way to God. Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me” (John 14:6).We can’t earn salvation; we are saved by God’s grace when we have faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. All you have to do is believe you are a sinner, that Christ died for your sins, and ask His forgiveness. Then turn from your sins—that’s called repentance. Jesus Christ knows you and loves you. What matters to Him is the attitude of your heart, your honesty.
You can say the following prayer to accept Christ as your Savior:
I know I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness.
I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life.
I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will.
I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.”
