Jesus' Sacred Heart

Knowing Jesus Christ as your Savior

 

This is the most incredible moment of your life.

  Our "free will" was a gift from El Shadi our God.  It was given to each of us at the beginning of time. 

Abba (God... our Father in Heaven) knew us... He designed us...

He gifted us with a desire (a longing) to return to Him and all He has to give. 

Abba is loving, He is kind, He is always diligent in His watch over us. 

Abba gave us a manual in which we can live a life fulfilled (Bible). 

Abba provides all of our needs... including His son!

A prayer of Salvation is from your heart.  You are sensing a "tugging" deep within.  There is a desire that nothing and no one can fill.  You might be at the "end" of your rope.  Maybe you are in such fear that you don't feel safe.  You could be suffering to the point of despair.  Maybe you have just read, seen, or heard someone teaching or praising our Lord.  How ever your search brought you to the decision to be saved, know...

 

 Jesus Christ suffered, died, was buried, and arose again for you... your sins are forgiven through His passionate love

 

 Asking Jesus for forgiveness means you are set free from all sin and your past


 You are not alone... from this point on you are a son/daughter of God... who is ever faithful and diligent in His watch over you

 

 You have the Word of God (Bible) as your promise, your shield, and your manual for living each and every day

 

 You have been given a comforter, a guide, a prayer partner through the Holy Spirit

 

A Salvation prayer can be as simple as asking:

Jesus, I need you.

I'm not sure how to do this, but you do.

Forgive me, I know that I am a sinner.

Save me, I give you my life.

Show me the way.

"Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you.

I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you.

Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again.

I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer.

I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward.

Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life.

In Jesus' name I pray, Amen."

Once you have asked Jesus Christ to be the Lord of your life, you are a new creation in Him (2 Corinthians 5:17):

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. 

 

  • Now you walk by faith, that means that you trust in Jesus as your Savior
  • You learn what God has said about you, for you and your life by reading the Bible daily (begin with 10 minutes, start with the book of Psalms in the old testament)
  • You ask someone you know (someone you know is a believer) to help you and pray for you
  • Begin looking for a church that is "grounded" in the word of God (scripture is read, taught, and discussed)... the Holy Spirit will let you know which church is the right one... you will know a peaceful acceptance once church begins
  • If you have not been baptized... ask those around you, those at church, check out what baptism means and why you should make this commitment (Matthew 28:19, 20)
  • If you can, look for a daily devotional booklet/book... scripture passages are always listed with a brief teaching and/or words to think about during your day (I read mine in the morning and before I turn out the light at night)
  • Begin searching, watching, listening, and reading stories about other believer's (their life's struggles and joys)... find a Christian channel for your radio in your car, on your phone, or at home... watch a Christian TV station (CBN, EWTN, TBN) trust Jesus, He will let you know what to watch (always check what you hear with the Word of God... I kept a piece of paper in my bible and wrote down the passage they were talking about)... check to see if the church or someone you know attends a Bible study
  • Open your mind, let your heart be filled with His goodness, begin your new life in Christ with joy...
