1. Sin keeps you from real life.
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God – Romans 3:23
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord – Romans 6:23
2. Know that sin can be forgiven
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were sinners, Christ died for us – Romans 5:8
For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life – John 3:16
3. Know salvation must come through Jesus only.
Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners – 1 Timothy 1:15
Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved – Acts 4:12
4. Pray for forgiveness and ask Jesus into your life. (pray something like this from your heart)
Dear father in heaven, I’m a sinner and I’m sorry for my sins. Please forgive me and help me to be a new person. I believe Jesus died on the cross for me. I now ask Jesus to come into my life and take over. I surrender completely to you. Jesus, be my Lord and savior. I love you. Thank you for forgiving me and thank you for real life. Amen.
5. Know your sins are forgiven and you have real life.
He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. For whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. – Romans 10:13
