God created the world and everything in it…including you. He created it all and declared that it was good. Then, through disobedience, sin entered the world and everything changed. From that moment, God's plan was to redeem you so that you might have a renewed relationship with Him. The Bible says, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23) And that the “wages of sin is death.” (Romans 6:23)
Because of your sin, you are separated from God. But God sent Jesus into the world to live a sinless life and die for you as a sacrifice to pay for your sin. “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8) But it didn’t end with His death on the cross. He rose again and still lives! “Christ died for our sins. … He was buried. … He was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). Jesus is the only way to God. Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me” (John 14:6).
There's no way for you to earn salvation and restore your relationship with God. You can ONLY:
The following prayer is your FIRST STEP into a relationship with God. Make the prayer your own and let it be fueled by your own desire to be right with God. Your prayer should be something like this:
“Dear God, I know I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness.
I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son.
I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life.
I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward.
Guide my life and help me to do your will.
I pray this in the name of Jesus.
