HOW TO KNOW GOD
IT'S EASY AS ABC
ADMIT - BELIEVE - CONFESS
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. — Jn 3:16
"God proved His love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, "I love you.'" -Dr. Billy Graham
Friends, God loves you like crazy! He loves you so much that He sent His one and only Son to die in your place. That's sacrificial love. It's agape love. Agape love is the highest form of love there is. Agape love is a selfless and unconditional love. It's often associated with God's love for humanity. Agape love is exemplified in Jesus Christ, who willingly sacrificed himself on the cross as an atoning sacrifice for our sins, demonstrating the ultimate act of selfless love. There is no greater love! "Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends (John 15:13). That's agape love!
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16 NIV). Jesus suffered and died for you, in your place. "He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world" (1 John 2:2 NIV).
"And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me." (John 12:32 KJV)
If you would like to know God on a personal level and know for sure you're on your way to heaven. Follow these steps. Easy as ABC:
(A) Admit you are a sinner.
"There is none righteous, no, not one . . . for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:10, 23).
(See also Romans 5:8; 6:23.)
(B) Believe in Jesus (put your trust in Him) as your only hope of salvation.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16).
(See also John 14:6.)
You Become a Child of God by Putting Your Trust in Christ.
"Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God" (John 1:12 NIV).
(See also Revelation 3:20.)
(C) Confess that Jesus is your Lord.
"If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved" (Romans 10:9 NIV). (See also Romans 10:10 NIV)
With every head bowed, and every eye closed, maybe you're here today, and you don't know God. Maybe you're not a Christian, or maybe you once was, but deep inside, you know you're no longer following Christ. Friends, this is a very serious moment. Perhaps you've never invited Jesus into your heart, for the very first time. Do you know how to be saved? Do you know how to go to heaven? Christ has already done all the work for you, on the cross. He rose again, and He's alive today. He's willing to come into your heart right now, and make you a new person. But what do you have to do? By faith, you have to receive Him. You have to be willing to repent of your sins, and receive Him, as Savior. And if you're willing to do that, then please, pray this prayer with me. THE MOST IMPORTANT DECISION, we make in this life, is where we'll spend our eternal life. I'm asking you right now to make that decision, to receive Him, as Lord and Savior. Today is the moment! You can become a Christian today. We can't come to Christ anytime we want to. You can only come to Christ, when the Spirit draws you. Is He drawing you today? If you answered yes, then bow your head, close your eyes, and pray this prayer with me.
Lord Jesus, I know that I have sinned. I believe that You died for my sins and rose again. I repent of my sins (which means to go in the opposite direction of sin). Please forgive me. I now accept You as my personal Savior. I will leave behind my sinful life. I know that Your grace and power will enable me to live for You. Thank You Jesus, for saving me and for giving me a new life. In Jesus Name, Amen.
