To be a son or daughter of God forever, it’s important to ask Jesus to forgive you of all your sins and tell Him that you believe that He is the Son of God. God’s original plan was for all people to be with Him forever. But we messed it up because of sin. Your sin (your disobedience to God) separates you from God. The punishment for sin is death. Jesus Christ (God’s Son) never sinned. When He willingly gave up His life by death on a cross, He took the punishment for our sins. “But God shows His own love in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8 After Jesus died, He rose from the dead showing God’s power over all. When Jesus died on the cross, He made a bridge to God. Now you can have a relationship with God. It starts when you believe that Jesus Christ is God’s Son who took the punishment for your sins. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father [God] except through Me.” John 14:8 Ask Jesus Christ to be your God. And ask Him to forgive you of all your sins! “But if we confess our sins to Him, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.” 1 John 1:9 That’s the start! Ask, Believe, Confess! Prayer is just talking to Jesus. Tell Him about what you just read. A little nervous? Don’t be. Here’s an example of what you might say… Dear Jesus, I believe you are God’s Son and that you died for my sins. Please forgive me. Thank you. I’m going to need your help and want you to be in charge. Help me today. Amen.
