Jesus said, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock; if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." (Rev 3:20 KJV ).
"For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him would not perish, but have ever lasting life," (John 3:16).
Jesus lived a sinless life while on this earth. He alone was worthy and Holy enough to die on the cross to pay for your sins.
The decision to be born again is one that only you can make, no one else can do it for you.
But when you do He will be with you to comfort, guide, help, and counsel all your earthly days, and when your life on earth is over, you will spend eternity in Heaven with Him. What a wonderful plan of salvation!
Becoming born again will be a decision you will never regret, a decision that will take you through eternity with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
All it takes is to believe in your heart, and to profess (say) out loud that you believe in God, and that Jesus is God's Son who came here to die for your sins.
"If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."
"For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved" (Rom 10:9-10).
When you believe the Scripture above, and can make the above statements of faith, you can simply ask Jesus to come into your heart, and He will. And you can do that right now.
Sometimes people are overly concerned with using the correct words in their prayer to become born again, but they shouldn't because Jesus already knows what is on their heart.
He knows they want to be born again and to be filled with His Holy Spirit, and that is all that counts. So, the particular words you use are not what is most important.
However, if it will help you feel more secure you can follow the prayer below. If you have previously done this and for any reason feel uncertain about your salvation you can ask Him into your heart again.
"The Sinner's Prayer" is prayed by those who have the desire to be born again.
"Lord Jesus, I believe in God and that you are the Son of God as recorded in Your Word. I realize that I am a sinner, and I believe you died for my sins. I now turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and ask for a new life with you. I ask you to come into my heart and life. I receive you as my Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me, Amen."
If you have prayed the above prayer God now see's you as His own child, totally pure, clean, and white as snow, "free from blame and guilt."
Find a local Church and request to be baptized, and begin to associate with other Christians. Ask the questions you are sure to have about your new life in Christ.
Get your own Bible. There are several good versions, the "King James Version" is my favorite, and the "New King James Version" is easy to understand.
You are now a babe in Christ. When Satan tries to interfere with your new Christian life, remember that God's Holy Spirit is always with you and that His power is much greater than Satan's.
Read your Bible everyday, and learn to listen for the Holy Spirit and allow Him to lead you into all truth. You will grow in your knowledge and understanding of God's Word and will soon become a mature Christian.
Be sure to tell others about your new life in Christ.
"Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” (Luke 15:10
Please stay in touch and ask any questions.
Jesus loves you even more than you can imagine!
