1. Realize and acknowledge:
“...all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” Romans 3:23.
Yes, you too have fallen short of Heaven because of your sin. You may be better than many others, but compared to Jesus”...there is none that doeth good,...” Romans 3:12.
2. Realize and acknowledge:
“...the wages of sin is death;...” Romans 6:23.
There are two kinds of death, physical and spiritual. We inherited both types of death from Adam. Adam’s sin brought physical and spiritual death to all. So, because of sin, we must die a second death eternally in Hell, unless we find another way to pay for our sin. Revelation 21:8 tells of “...the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”
3. Realize and acknowledge:
"...Christ died for our sins..." 1 Corinthians 15:3.
Jesus paid the entire price for you by His death on the cross. A Holy and Just God set the price on sin, and then in love, paid the price for sin Himself in the person of Christ.
4. Realize and acknowledge:
"...the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23.
He bought eternal life for all. Jesus owns and freely gives eternal life. In fact, He promises that: "I ... him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out." John 6:37.
We are saved from the second death by a living Saviour! Christ is alive today! Romans 6:9 wonderfully says: "Knowing that Christ being raised form the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him."
He has power and victory over death and sin and thereby offers the same to you as a gift, not a reward.
5. Realize and acknowledge:
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:13.
This is a promise. The word "whosoever" means you. Not ... whosoever is a church member, or is baptized, or is confirmed, or takes communion, or does the best he can; but whosoever shall call believing in Jesus. He died, was buried, and rose again so that you may believe when John 1:12 says: "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."
6. Confess and ask:
Lord Jesus, I believe You died, were buried and rose again to pay for my sins. I am sorry for my sins. Please be merciful to me a sinner and save me from Hell. Thank you, Lord, for saving me today.
