God's Invitation

 
1. To accept God's full pardon without charge
2. To re-commit your life to God to serve Him more fully See No. 2 Below
   
1. YES, I want to Know God and accept Jesus Christ's invitation to accept him into my heart and life as personal Lord and Savior and, in so doing, receive God's full and free pardon for all my my sins. Praying the following prayer sincerely will help you do this:

"Dear God, I confess that I am a sinner and am sorry for all the wrongs that I have done and the sins that I have committed. I believe that your Son, Jesus Christ, died on the cross for my sins. Please forgive me and I invite you, Jesus, to come into my heart and life as my personal Lord and Savior. I commit and trust my life and way to you. Please forgive me, and give me the desire to be what you want me to be and the will to do what you want me to do. Thank for the greatest gift anyone could ever receive; that is for coming to earth and dying on the cross in my place to pay the just penalty for all my sins. Thank you, too, for your forgiveness and free pardon, for the gift of eternal life, and for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully in Jesus' name, amen."

When you pray to receive Christ into your life, you have a brand new spiritual life. This life needs care and nurturing just as your physical life does.

Here's Great Assurance

If you genuinely prayed to invite Jesus Christ into your heart and life, you are now a true Christian and have the gift of a new spiritual life as well as eternal life. You are also a child of God and a member of his family.1 God promised this. Choose to accept this by faith and not feelings. Feelings change but God's Word never does.

God's Word says, "And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son [Jesus Christ]. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life."2

2. To Re-commit Your Life to God to Serve Him More Fully


YES, I have already accepted Jesus as my Savior, but in appreciation for all He and God have done for me, I want to serve God more fully and today am recommitting my life to God. The following prayer, prayed sincerely will help you to do this:

Dear God, because of your great love for me in giving your Son, Jesus, to pay the penalty for all my sins, and Dear Jesus, because you gave your life to die for me, today I re-commit my life and way to you. Please help me every day to put you first in my life, to serve you faithfully, and help me to be 'as Jesus' in some way to every life I touch. Please make me usable and use me to be a part of what you are doing in the world today. Also, please help me to so live that when I meet you face to face, I will hear your welcome words, 'Well done, good and faithful servant. Enter into the Joy of your Lord.' So help me God. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus' name, amen"
