To be saved is to surrender to God and His plan and purpose for our lives. It means turning from our old ways and turning to Jesus, to ask Him for forgiveness from our sins and to give us new life in Him.
“If you declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
Salvation is God’s free gift to us. It is acceptance into the family of God, where He gives you the ability to live a life of purpose, meaning, and one that reflects His love to others. Whether you’ve never known Jesus before or it’s just been a while since you have felt close to Him, you can choose today to invite Him in your life by praying this simple prayer
Dear Jesus, I’m praying this prayer because I know that I have done wrong by living without You. I ask for Your forgiveness and I choose to accept the love and grace You have given to me. I know that I need You in my life, so help me to trust You and walk with You each day. I want to know Your love so that it changes me, from the inside out. Thank You for accepting me just as I am. Use me to show others this same freedom I have found. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
