The Plan of Salvation
Salvation from sin is a GIFT from God. You accept it on condition that you will let Christ deliver you from your sin and to control your life!
That you have transgressed God's laws and have fallen short of God's will.
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23).
That God loves you and offers you His mercy which is the salvation work of His Son, Jesus Christ.
"But God commendeth His Love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8).
Christ's death and resurrection as God's provision for your forgiveness. Acknowledge your acceptance of Christ by praying sincerely:
"Lord Jesus, I am a sinner, I accept you as my Savior and Lord of my life. Make me an obedient child of God. I want to KNOW you personally. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life to you and ask You to come in as my Savior and Lord. Take control of my life. Thank you for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. I accept what you have done for me and will cooperate with what You want to do in and through me."
"But as many as received Him, to them gave He power To become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name" (John 1:12). Choose you this day whom ye will serve!
In newness of life. When a person actually becomes a child of God, it will change the way he thinks, the way he talks, and the way he acts.
"Like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life... Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye your
members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves "under God," as those that are alive from the dead and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God" (Romans 6:4, 12, 13).
Yours In His Service,
