Contrary to popular belief, God is a truly loving God. But when sin entered the world, our relationship with Him is broken. Because God is both loving and just, he sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross to take the penalty of our sins so we could be forgiven.
“For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
Eternal life is a gift to those who believe in Jesus Christ. If you want this gift, all you need to do is say a simple prayer (like one below) and believe in Jesus Christ as your Saviour. If you mean it, God will honour his promise to forgive ALL your sins (past, present, and yes, even future) and give you the gift of eternal life:
Father God, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and I need your forgiveness.
Thank you for Jesus Christ who died on the cross to pay for my sins. I want to put my trust in Him as my one and only saviour. I receive your free gift of eternal life. I believe that I will spend eternity with you, not because I’m good, but because Christ has totally forgiven me. Help me to honour you and be a faithful Christ’s follower for the rest of my life. Amen.
If you prayed this prayer and meant it, CONGRATULATIONS! We rejoice with you, and we would like to know about it so we could support you in your new journey of faith. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. God bless you!
