Giving Your Life to Jesus
Come to Jesus:
I'm glad you want to give your life to Jesus and so I want you to know
that God loves you very dearly. Put your name in the dotted
spaces in the verse from John 3:16 below, and say it out loud:
"For God so loved ( your name ......... ),
that He gave His one and
only Son, Jesus Christ,
that if ( ........ ) believes in Him,
( ........ ) will not perish,
but have eternal life in Heaven."
Realise You have Sinned:
God wants you to turn away from your sin and do things His way. Sin
is disobeying God and doing wrong things. You need to realise that
unless you give your life to Jesus, you will be separated from God
forever when you die. Romas 3:23 says:
"For ALL have sinned and have not lived up to the goodness of God."
"For the wages of sin is death (separated from God forever)"
Believe Jesus Died for You:
Do you believe that Jesus died on the Cross to forgive your sins, and
that He rose again, proving that He is the Son of God? If
you do, you will realise that only Jesus can forgive your sins and that
He is the way to Heaven. We read in the Bible that:
"While we were still sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8).
"I am the Way, the Truth and the Life;
No one comes to the Father
except through Me" (John 14:6).
Accept Jesus as Saviour:
If you decide to give your life to Jesus, then you need to tell Jesus
that you have sinned, and ask Him to wash your sins away and make you
"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive our sins,
and to cleanse us from all wrong" (1 John 1:9).
"But the gift of God is Eternal Life through Christ Jesus our Lord"
Pray to Jesus:
Now ask Jesus come into your life as your Saviour by saying this prayer
I know I have done wrong things. Please forgive all my sins and
make me clean inside. Come into my life and be my Saviour, Best
Friend and Lord. Change me into a child of God, and make me
into the kind of person You want me to be. I know that when
I die, I will live forever with You in Heaven. Help me to read
the Bible and talk to You every day, so that I can please You in all
I do. I receive this now in Jesus Name, Amen.
Believe and know that Jesus has come to live in your heart. Trust
God to do what He has promised in the Bible. Say out loud,
"Jesus has forgiven my sins and made me clean inside, and now I'm a
child of God, and have a place reserved for me in Heaven".
"For it is by grace (God's loving kindness) that you are saved through
It is the gift of God, not by what you do" (Ephesians 2:8-9).
Make sure you serve Jesus and please Him every day. Grow as a
Christian by talking to God each day in prayer, reading your Bible
(start in Luke's Gospel), and going to a Sunday School or Children's
Church each week. Don't forget to tell your friends about Jesus
and what He has done for you!
