Dear friend, please say this simple prayer to begin a new relationship with your best friend Jesus Christ.
Lord Jesus Christ, I thank you for the opportunity you’ve given me to begin a new relationship with you today. I have come to understand that I have sinned against God in one way or the other, knowingly or unknowingly. I want to say that I am truly sorry for ignoring you and your true love for me all my life and doing things my own way. I thank you from the depths of my heart for being so patient with me and for your unconditional love which you showed by dying on the cross of calvary for my sins that I may be saved from my sins and begin a new life in you and have eternal life in you forevermore and not perish forever in hell.
Please look away from my ignorance and forgive me my sins. I want to make right with you again today, so that you can become my Lord and personal saviour. I (please say your name), today confess with my mouth that Jesus Christ is LORD, and I believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead. I want to say from my heart that I love you Jesus and a big thank you for loving me unconditionally forever.
Dear friend, now you’ve said the prayer, you’re now a born again believer and a follower of Jesus Christ.
A big congratulations on your bold step of faith in becoming a follower of Jesus Christ! You’ve now made the greatest decision of your life, and your eternal destiny in God’s Kingdom is now assured forevermore so long as you continue to remain in Jesus Christ all the days of your life.
As a new believer and friend of Jesus, you need to know him better in order for you to grow and mature in your newly found faith in Jesus, so as to withstand the challenges of life and any fear, opposition and discouragement that may come your way as a result of your new faith in Jesus. To do so, you need to join and fellowship regularly with other born again believers in a bible believing church, where you will be fed the authentic Word of God.
Following Jesus Christ all the days of your life on this earth, is the greatest good you can do to yourself and to others around you. Please get yourself a Bible today so that you can have a personal study of the Word of God and mediate on God’s Word daily in order to know Jesus better. You’ve taken the right step and may God bless you and be with you daily and forevermore, Amen!
Dear friend, there’s a great price to pay to follow Jesus Christ all the days of your life on this earth.
You need to be aware that when people hear the message about Jesus and the kingdom of God and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart. Some people hear the message about Jesus and the kingdom of God and at once receive it with joy but since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes their way because of their newly found faith in Jesus Christ, they quickly fall away.
Also, some people hear the message about Jesus and the kingdom of God, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the Word of God in their life, making it unfruitful.
However, there are people who hear the message about Jesus and the kingdom of God and they understand it by God’s Special Grace. These are the people who grow and mature in their newly found faith in Jesus Christ their Lord and Saviour. Such people live their lives forever to honour Jesus, and they go about telling their family, friends and others about their newly found faith in Jesus Christ their Lord and Saviour, and about the wonderful things Jesus has done in their lives, and how He can do the same for them if they’ll let Him into their lives.
