QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT STARTING A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD
- I’ve not been good enough to know God. What hope do I have?
- I’m not a bad person, so I should be okay coming to Him in my own way, right?
- Can I do anything to make up for the sin in my life?
- Are there consequences for my sin?
- How do I start a relationship with God through Jesus?
First, you must admit that you’re a sinner. Then, you must choose to accept God’s way of salvation, His Son, Jesus Christ.
Romans 10:9-10 tells us that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
A simple sincere prayer is the way we initiate our connection with God. Just tie your heart around these words and pray:
God, I thank You for the gift of salvation through Your Son, Jesus Christ. I recognize that I have sinned. I proclaim Jesus as the Lord of my life. I choose to do things Your way. I believe He died on the cross and was raised from the dead to pay the penalty for my sin.
Jesus, thank you for paying the price to save me and give me eternal life. I invite You into my heart, into my life. I ask you to change me on the inside. Help me to live this life in a way that would honor You. In Jesus name, Amen.\r\n\r\n
