ABC

Here are the ABCs of accepting Jesus as your Savior:

A. Acknowledge
Acknowledge and repent of your sin, realizing sin separates us from a holy and righteous God.

B. Believe
Believe in your heart that Jesus died in your place, taking the punishment you deserve, and that His death and resurrection can deliver you from the penalty of your sin. Our good works cannot deliver us. As the prophet Isaiah said, “We are all like an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags” (Isa. 64:6).

C. Confess
Confess that Jesus, the Messiah of Israel, is your Savior. The apostle Paul wrote, “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Rom. 10:9–10).

If you have never asked the Lord Jesus to be your personal Savior and deliver you from the penalty of your sin, why not pray this prayer from your heart right now? Saying this prayer will not save you. The key to eternal life is believing it.

God, I confess I have sinned against You. I believe Jesus is God, who died for my sins and arose from the grave and who has the power to forgive me, transform me, and make a home for me with Him for eternity. Please forgive me of my sin and come into my life. Thank you for taking away my sin and giving me Your peace. Please help me now to grow in the knowledge and grace of the Lord. Amen.
