God’s love is not based on our goodness or how we perform but rather on who we are and we are all God’s children when we accept His son, Jesus Christ, who gave His life for all of us. Receiving the love of Jesus and living in his love everyday, is the first and most essential step in having a love worth giving. Jesus gave His life for you so give your life to Him.

We are all born with a sin nature. Because of our sin, we are unable to have a relationship with God without forgiveness.

For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Romans 3:23 NLT

We can’t earn God’s forgiveness – it must be given. Jesus gave His life as a sacrifice so that we could be forgiven.

But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. Romans 5:8 NLT
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23 NLT

We must accept this free gift from God by committing our lives and heart to Jesus.

If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9 NLT

PRAY THIS PRAYER

I acknowledge that you, Jesus, are the Son of God. I believe that you died on the cross, that your blood was shed for my sins and that you arose form the grave and conquered death. I understand that I was born a sinner and that I have sinned by disobeying your commandments. I ask you to forgive me for these sins. Please change my heart to be like yours - loving and full of forgiveness. Help me to obey your teachings as recorded in the Bible. Bring people who can help me on this new path. Be my Savior.

GROW YOUR FAITH

When you pray and ask Jesus into your heart as your Lord and Savior, get “saved” or are “born again,” you take the first step on the Way of Salvation.

Salvation is not merely a one-time experience. It is an experience which places you on the Christian faith journey – the Way of Salvation. Accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior is your first step on the trip. As you read your Bible you will grow spiritually. God speaks to you through His word. Find some good Christian people to associate with. Begin to attend a Bible believing church. Learn how to witness to others telling them about your new relationship with Jesus. The goal of the Christian life is not getting into Heaven; that is the reward. The goal is to continually become more like Jesus Christ and for your personal relationship with Him to grow deeper.

It is important to spend time reading the Bible. The Bible feeds the spirit inside of you and will give you the strength to grow in your new faith. I suggest that you begin in the New Testament with the book of John.

You can listen to the Bible and you can also read from the Bible. Click here to read or listen to the book of John now.
