This book was written primarily to people who have a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ, who is their Lord and Savior. If you do not, the following information will tell you how you may come to know him and be certain about your eternal salvation.
Salvation was very costly and difficult for God to accomplish but he has made it very simple and easy for us to receive. It is a free gift that we receive by faith. God has offered it to anyone who will accept it.
Jesus died on the cross for our sin, he was buried, and he rose again on the third day. His shed blood paid the price for our complete forgiveness and salvation. He ascended up into heaven and is seated at the Father's right hand, where he lives to be our Savior.
If you would like to be spiritually reborn and enter a personal relationship with God, with him as your father and you as his child, you can do that right now. If you are not sure if you have a relationship with God and would like to be certain, you can settle that question in your heart.
Just believe and make a decision of your will. The expression of your heart is the issue, not the specific words that you pray. But here is an example that you may follow if you would like to have an idea of what to say:
Dear Lord Jesus, I believe that you died on the cross for my sin, that you were buried, that you rose again on the third day, and that you are now seated at the Father's right hand in heaven. I accept your free gift of salvation and I give myself to you. Please come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior. I receive you now. Thank you. I believe that I am now born again and saved to live with you in heaven forever. Please teach me how to live in the new relationship that I now have with you and the Heavenly Father and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
If you have just accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart and life we would love to hear about it. Please send us a letter or an e-mail.
