Contrary to popular belief, God is a truly loving God. But our relationship with Him is broken because of sin. Because of His love for us, God became man in the person of Jesus Christ. He died on the cross for us and rose again victorious thus defeating Satan’s stronghold. Through Jesus’ death, God has taken away your sins; your sin has been forgiven.
“For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
Eternal life is not something we deserve or can work for through good works or fulfilling religious duties. Eternal life is a gift to those who simply believe in Jesus Christ. All you need to do is to acknowledge that you’re a sinner and put your faith in Jesus Christ as your Saviour. You can say a simple prayer (like one below) to express that faith:
Father God, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and I need your forgiveness. Thank you for Jesus Christ who died on the cross because of my sins. I want to put my trust in Jesus as my one and only saviour. I receive your free gift of eternal life. I believe that I will spend eternity with you, not because I’m good, but because Christ has totally forgiven me. Help me to honour you and be a faithful Christ’s follower for the rest of my life. Amen.
If you prayed this prayer and meant it, CONGRATULATIONS! God will honour his promise to forgive ALL your sins (past, present, and yes, even future) and give you the gift of eternal life. We rejoice with you, and we would like to know about it so we could support you in your new journey of faith. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or get in touch with us below. God bless you!
