How You Can Receive Christ into Your Life
If your heart is open and you want to know and receive Christ and the Holy Spirit into your life, do the following:
- Acknowledge Jesus Christ is God;
- Confess your past life of sin; and
- Admit you're ready to trust Christ as your Savior and Lord.
Pray the following for Jesus to come into your heart and live through you:
"Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen."
