How to Begin a Relationship with Jesus Christ

If you have not made a choice to accept Jesus Christ and follow Him, now is the time to do so. Today is the day of salvation. This is the day to decide where you will spend eternity. After all, we are not guaranteed our next breath. Remember to not make a choice, is in itself a choice.

Many people acknowledge that there is a God, but stop short when it comes to accepting that Jesus is the only way to spend eternity with him.

Do these thoughts reflect your feelings? “Why shouldn’t I get to spend eternity in heaven? I’m not so bad, I try to live a good life and help those in need. I attend church. I do not believe that a loving God would send people to hell.”

That is exactly what Satan wants you to believe. God DOES NOT send anyone to hell. Hell or Heaven is YOUR choice. Hell was created for Satan and the angels that rebelled against God, not for us. But if we turn our backs on Jesus Christ, and trust in our own goodness to get us to Heaven then we are being deceived.

Have you made Jesus Lord of your life?

A Personal Letter from God

My Child,

My Son is returning soon. Are you ready? Have you made Jesus Lord of your life? Do you think you have eternal life because you are a good person? I look down from heaven on the entire human race; to see if anyone is truly wise if anyone seeks me. But no, all have turned away; all have become corrupt. No one does good, not a single one! (Psalm 53:2-3) For everyone has sinned; all fall short of my glorious standard. (Romans 3:23)

If you claim you have no sin, you are only fooling yourself and not living in the truth. (1John 1:8) You are calling me a liar and showing that my word has no place in your heart. (1John 1:10) There is no judgment against anyone who believes in Christ Jesus. But anyone who does not believe in Jesus has already been judged for not believing in my one and only Son. (John 3:18)

The day is coming when I, God, through Christ Jesus, will judge everyone’s secret life. (Romans 2:16) All will stand before the judgment seat of God. As surely as I live, every knee will bend to me, and every tongue will confess and give praise to me. Yes, everyone will give a personal account to God. (Romans 14:10-12)  For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus the Lord. (Romans 6:23)

I, God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for your sin, so that you could be made right with me through Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:21) I showed my great love for you by sending Christ to die for you. (Romans 5:8)  For I, God loved the world so much that I gave my one and only Son so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)I know the plans I have for you; they are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11)

Therefore if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that I, the Lord God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with Me, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. Anyone who trusts in me will never be disgraced. Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. (Romans 10:9-10) For if you confess your sins to me, I AM faithful and just to forgive your sins and to cleanse you from all wickedness. (1 John 1:9)

Today is the day of salvation! Love Eternal, God, the Father

It’s Your Choice

Please make The Choice for Jesus. Let us enjoy the presence of the Lord together for all eternity! If you have decided to make the choice to accept Jesus as your Savior, invite Jesus into your heart by praying a prayer like the one below. The prayer must come from your heart and I hope this will help you to invite Jesus into yours. This prayer is here only as a guide. I urge you to pour out your heart to Jesus in your own words.

“Heavenly Father,

Have mercy on me, a sinner. I believe in you and that your word is true. I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God and that he died on the cross so that I may now have forgiveness for my sins and eternal life. I know that without you in my heart my life is meaningless.

I believe in my heart that you, Lord God, raised Him from the dead. Please, Jesus, forgive me, for every sin I have ever committed or done in my heart, please Lord Jesus forgive me and come into my heart as my personal Lord and Savior today. I need you to be my Father and my friend.

I give you my life and ask you to take full control from this moment on; I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ.”

Amen.
