5. Receive the Good News
God Loves You! This is not a trite or a “make you feel good” statement. It is not a fairy tale, fable, or legend. It is indeed simple, but most profound! A holy God loving a sinful people! This is the truth. God said it Himself and sent Jesus Christ to die in your place to prove His love!
God's love is available to everyone, but it is especially available to you because He is a personal God! This information may not be new to you. You may have heard it hundreds of times. It is spoken in millions of churches, broadcast around the world, it is even evident through God's creation. It is available to everyone. But someday God will speak this message to you personally. In that moment His message of love will speak directly to your heart.
Maybe you sense God speaking to you now. Maybe reading these pages has stirred something in your heart.
This is the perfect time to respond.
"God says, “At the right time I heard your prayers. On the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you that the “right time” is now, and the “day of salvation” is now." (2 Corinthians 6:2, NCV).
Use the following prayer as a guide or use your own words to receive God's Gift, Jesus Christ:
Dear Lord Jesus,
I know that I am a sinner and need your forgiveness. Please forgive me of my sins. I believe that you died for my sins and rose from the dead to give me eternal life. I now accept you into my heart and life as my Lord and Savior. I turn from my life of sin to walk in fellowship with you. Thank you for accepting me as you have promised.
If you have just received Jesus into your life, be assured He has accepted you and you've been adopted into His family. He will never leave you or forsake you.
"My sheep recognize my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one will snatch them away from me" (John 10:27-28, NLB).
"Whoever has the Son has life, but whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write this letter to you who believe in the Son of God so you will know you have eternal life" (I John 5:12-13, NCV).
