Getting to know Jesus
A relationship with Jesus and the gift of eternal life is something that God freely offers to everyone.
To receive this gift is an act of faith.
In the Bible, the gospel of John says it like this:
‘God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life’
To receive this gift of eternal life, starts with a simple prayer that says three things to God:
Thank youWe believe that Jesus died for us on the cross and that Him dying is Him offering the free gift of forgiveness, freedom and His Spirit. Take a moment to thank Him.
SorryAsk God to forgive you for all the things you have done wrong and turn from everything which you know is wrong in your life. This is what the Bible means by ‘repentance’.
PleaseGod never forces His way into our lives. You need to accept His gift and invite Him to come and live within you by His Spirit.
A prayer to pray
If you would like to have a relationship with God and you are ready to say these three things, then here is a simple prayer you can pray:
I know that I have done wrong and that my sin has separated me from you, but I want to live my life your way from now on. I ask for and receive your forgiveness. Thank you Lord. I believe in Jesus- that He died for my sins and was resurrected to give us eternal life and relationship. By faith I receive your gift of freedom. I say yes to you. I am ready to trust you as my Lord and Saviour and give you my heart, my thoughts, my words and my life from this day forward.
So, what now?
