How to Commit Your Life to Christ

 

 1.  ADMIT THAT I AM A SINNER.

 “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from every wrong.”  1 John 1:9

 2.  BELIEVE THAT JESUS DIED TO PAY FOR MY SINS AND THAT HE ROSE AGAIN, AND IS ALIVE TODAY.

“If you confess that Jesus is your Lord, and you believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”  Romans 10:9

 “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name (Jesus) by which we must be saved.”  Acts 4:12

3.  COMMIT  MY LIFE TO CHRIST.

  “To all who received him, to those who believed in His name, he gave the right to become children of God. John 1:12

 “Jesus says, ‘Listen!  I stand at the door and knock.  If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in…’”  Revelation 3:30

  YOU CAN TAKE THESE STEPS BY PRAYING A SIMPLE PRAYER OF COMMITMENT TO CHRIST LIKE THIS…

  “Dear Jesus, thank you for making me and loving me, even when I’ve ignored you and gone my own way.  I realize I need you in my life and I’m sorry for my sins.  I ask you to forgive me. Thank you for dying on the cross for me.  Please help me to understand it more.  As much as I know how, I want to follow you from now on.  Please come into my life and make me a new person inside.  I accept your gift of salvation.  Please help me to grow now as your follower.”

 If you prayed a prayer like this, you have committed your life to Christ.  Congratulations!   You have made the most important decision in your life: 

  •  It Forgives Your Past.
  • Secures Your Future
  • Makes Your Present Manageable With God’s Help.

   “Whoever calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved.”  Romans 10:13
