- 1. Recognize your condition.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).
No one is good enough to go to Heaven on his own merit. No matter how much good we do, we still fall short.
- 2. Realize the penalty for sin.
For the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23).
Just as there are wages for good, there is punishment for wrong. The penalty for our sin is eternal death in a place called Hell.
- 3. Believe Christ died for you.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).
Christ’s great love for us was shown when He died on the cross to pay our sin debt.
- 4. Trust Christ alone as your Savior.
But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved (Romans 10:13).
Everlasting life is a gift purchased by the blood of Jesus and offered freely to those who call upon Him by faith.
Let us help you word a prayer. (Realize it’s not mere words that save, but your faith in Jesus Christ.)
“Dear Lord Jesus, I know I’m a sinner. Please forgive me for my sins. Jesus, come into my heart and save my soul from Hell. I’m trusting you, and you alone, to take me to Heaven when I die. Thank you for hearing my prayer and saving me. Amen.”
