Embracing God’s Plan for Your Life
God’s plan for you to have eternal life and to be in a right relationship with Him is as simple as ABC:
- Admit you have sinned against God — done things that are wrong. The penalty for sin is spiritual death — separation from God.
- Believe that Jesus died to pay the penalty for your sin by dying on the cross in your place.
- Confess that Jesus is Lord by asking Him to forgive you of your sin and take complete control of your life and run it.
Jesus has already done all the heavy lifting to bring you into a relationship with God. All you need to do is accept Jesus’ work on your behalf by placing your faith in Him and asking Him to be the boss over your life.
If you are willing, you can pray this prayer:
I realize that I am a sinner and I have sinned against you.
I know that the penalty for my sin is death – eternal separation from your presence.
I believe that Jesus Christ has paid the penalty that I could not pay by dying on a cross instead of me, then rose again because God accepted the penalty He paid.
I ask you to forgive me for my sin. I surrender everything I am and everything I have to your control. Come in and take control of my life.
Thank you for your free gift of new life ― a relationship with you that extends to eternity!
