Jesus Christ is the Divine Son of God. God allowed Jesus to come to earth to accomplish something that would help us now and save us eternally. Because every one of us have sinned in our lives, we deserve the punishment that comes with doing wrong. Because God is a just God, He is obligated to punish our sin. But, out of His love for us and to save us from the punishment that we deserve - Hell, He allowed Jesus to come to the earth as a man without sin and die for our sin.
The punishment we deserve was laid upon Jesus. You could say, that He took our punishment for us. The Bible tells us that He did this as a gift. We can't earn it - like all gifts - it's free. We receive it as a gift, by faith through believing. When we believe what Jesus did for us and receive this gift by faith, we are forgiven of our sins and promised eternal life immediately. All our sins become washed away - past, present and future. Of course we should try to live our life after God's ways, but He knows that will make mistakes. Jesus allows us to come directly to Him continuously, for forgiveness of sins when we blow it. The Bible says He will be faithful to continually cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Praise the Lord!
This is a gift to each individual. To receive it, you must confess Jesus as your Savior and Lord. You simply pray and ask Him to be your Lord and Savior. When you do and mean it from your heart, the Bible says the miracle of forgiveness happens and you are reborn or born again into the family of God. God places His Holy Spirit in you and you will never be the same. You will sense God with you and in you.
If you would like to ask Jesus into your heart now, simply pray this prayer to God and mean if from your heart. A miracle will happen as you pray. You will be forgiven and brought into the family of God. Pray this Prayer:
Heavenly Father, I do believe that Jesus is your Son. That He came to earth to die for my sins. That He rose again from the dead. Jesus please come into my heart. Please forgive me of all my sins. Please wash them all away. Please come and live in my heart. Please teach my your ways. Please help me to learn and understand your Word. Please give me Christian friends that love you and can help me grow in your Word. Please help me find a church that will teach me the Bible and help me grow in knowing you. I thank you now in Jesus name, Amen.
If you prayed that prayer, please read Fresh Manna. It will help you. Also please find a church that teaches the Bible. Pray by just talking to God honestly from your heart. He will help you and teach you of Himself. Ask God to help you develop Christian friends. Read your Bible and before each time that you do, ask the Holy Spirit to help you understand what you are reading. You will be surprised how real God is to you and how He can speak to you through His Word - the Bible.
