Got Jesus?

How to receive Jesus

crossThe greatest decision you can ever make in your life is accepting Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour! Sounds so simple.

Many run helter skelter trying to please God. They give alms to the poor, travel to some Holy Land, sacrifice, and engage in all sort of religious activities. The good news is that Jesus already paid the price. All you need to do is to accept His offer and let the journey of a new life begin.

1) The love of God.

God loves you more than you can imagine. He is ever waiting for you to come to Him and can enjoy all that He has for you. (John 3:16; Romans 5:8)

2) The deceitfulness of sin.

All have sinned and come short of the glory of God. A lifetime of sin will lead to an eternity of sorrow. The pain of the consequences of sin is not work any seeming gain it may offer. (Romans 6:23; Romans 3:23)

3) The promise of life.

With sin comes everything Satan has to offer. For this reason, Jesus came to offer us life, a life of bliss and freedom from Satan, sicknesses, oppression and whatever God does not intend for man. (John 10:10; I John 3:8)

4) The inadequacy of man's efforts.

The work of man's effort is like filthy rags in the presence of God. The best of man is useless for salvation. Resolutions cannot result in salvation. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Isaiah 64:4)

5) The finished work of Christ.

Do you know the good news? Jesus paid the debt you could not pay. He made the way to bring us back to God. Now, you can get into a true relationship with God where He is your Father and you are His son/daughter! Jesus sacrificed His life to make that happen. (1 Peter 2:24; Romans 5:8; 2 Corinthians 5:19)

6) The potency of faith.

For Christ to come into your life, faith must be involved. Faith is simply trusting that the finished work of Christ is sufficient for your salvation. It is believing that what God has promised He is able to do. It is agreeing with God that you are who God says you are. (Acts 16:30-31; Romans 10:9-10)

7) The prayer of repentance unto salvation.

Acknowledge your sinfulness to the Lord. Have a change of mind about sin and repent. Ask the Lord for forgiveness and accept His offer of pardon.
