 HOW TO KNOW CHRIST PERSONALLY

Have you ever wondered?
Why do you get up in the morning? What are you looking for in life? How will you handle the really tough times? Hard questions don’t have easy answers, but they do have an answer. That answer is ultimately found in the God who created the universe and loves you unconditionally. How do you find that God? How do you reach Him? This is the Good News: God has come looking for you! He has reached out to you! Saying “Yes” to God begins with your desire to respond to His gracious Gift of Jesus Christ. Here are some ways to help you do just that. Discover for yourself life the way it was meant to be. Accept God’s Gift today!

Accepting God’s Free Gift of Salvation:
1. Realize that God loves you and wants you to live with Him in heaven! John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” That you are a sinner. Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” That there are consequences of sin. Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
2. Repent from sin and self then turn to Jesus for forgiveness of your sin. Luke 13:5 Jesus said, “I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”
3. RECEIVE Him and Believe that Jesus died, was buried, and arose again. 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 “For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.” Confess the Lord. Romans 10:9 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Invite Jesus to be your Savior and Lord. Romans 10:13 “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Pray and invite Jesus to come into your heart to be your Savior and Lord. He will save you from the eternal punishment of sin.

Pray this prayer by faith to Him:
Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness. I believe by faith that You died on the cross for me. I now turn from my sins and ask You to forgive me. I invite You into my heart and life to save my soul. I trust You as Savior and will follow You as Lord. Thank You for saving me. Amen.

Praise the Lord, you are now a child of God! A Christian. That means a ‘little Christ.’ You were created to be His hands and feet, to live out His purposes. You have an exciting journey ahead. Please contact us immediately and let us know that you have asked Jesus to be your Savior and Lord! church@sullivanbaptist.org We would love to send you some helpful information to begin your walk with Christ.
