To become a Christian or to experience salvation is a free gift of God. No one can be right with God or attain righteousness by their own good deeds.
We are made right with God by simply accepting the way that He has made available for all to be saved. It is obtaining God's free gift of salvation - Jesus Christ.
The bible says ‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son so that who ever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life.' John 3:16.
God sent His son Jesus to die for the sins of the whole world. His death paid for every sin.
The bible also makes it clear that ‘All have sinned and fallen short of the glory (standard) of God.' We need to get things right with God to experience peace and eternal life. (Romans, 3:23, Romans 6:23, Romans 10:9-11)
However, we are made right with God by simply accepting the way that He has made available for all to be saved.
Jesus said, I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father but by me. (John 14:6)
Please pray this simple prayer if you want to be saved;
Father, I thank you for sending Jesus Christ to die for my sins. Please forgive me for all my sins. I turn away from them and I accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour. Please Jesus come into my life and make me a new person. Please fill me with your Holy Spirit to help me serve you all my life. Thank you Jesus for saving my soul. Amen.
If you have genuinely prayed this prayer, believe that your sins are forgiven and that your spirit has experienced what we call the New Birth. You are now Born Again.
