Do you know Him? 

“And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” John 17:3.
God loves you and he wants you to know him. 

HOW TO BE SAVED AND REALLY KNOW HIM!

(WALK THROUGH THE FOLLOWING STEPS)

1. We have a serious problem.

The condition of every person is that “we have a sinful heart”, but God is Holy.
“As it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one;” Romans 3:10.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23.
Now that we know a sinful heart is our problem, what is the consequence if we ignore the sin in our life? It will be Death! (Eternal separation from God).
“For the wages of sin is death…” Romans 6:23a.
But there is hope for salvation through Jesus Christ.
“…but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23b.

2. Yes, there is hope for us, but only through Jesus Christ.

God loves us and sent Jesus to die for our sins.
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this; While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8.

3. What must we do?

We need to be saved by declaring him “Lord” and by faith (believing) in his resurrection.
“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. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.” Romans 10:9-10.
Can I be saved too? Yes you can.
“For, ‘Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’” Romans 10:13.

4. The Results of Salvation.

There are two positive results after we have confessed that “Jesus Christ is Lord.” and believe in our heart that God raised him from the dead.

First, we are justified. (We were guilty but are now innocent and at peace with God.)
“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand.” Romans 5:1

Secondly, we can now rejoice that our salvation is real, that we are now saved!
Before faith in Christ, we were condemned to death. But now with faith in Christ, there is no condemnation towards us and we now have eternal life!
“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,” Romans 8:1.
“…but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23b.

God’s plan of salvation is possible for you! This requires a personal faith in Jesus Christ and believe that his blood shed on the cross can wash your sins away.

PRAY NOW TO BE SAVED.
Dear Lord Jesus,  I believe you died for my sins on the cross, and that you were buried, and arose from the grave on the third day. I believe these words are true, and Lord Jesus, “I invite you into my heart right now, I repent, please forgive me of all my sins. Thank you Lord for forgiving me, for washing my sins away, and saving me for all eternity,  Amen.

(Since praying, Do you now know that you’re a new person? Perhaps you have just been born of the Spirit). 
What is BEING BORN OF THE SPIRIT?: “The making alive of those who are dead in their sin” and this is by the work of the Holy Spirit of God: for, “That which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” (John 3:6)
