Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior? You might have heard this question before, but not quite understood what it meant. You can attend church, and even get baptized without truly having a personal relationship with God.
As a Christian, having a personal relationship with God means that you believe that Christ—the son of God—came to save you from sin and death. As a result, you develop your own prayer life. You find a church that fits your personality and spiritual needs. You confess or say good words over your life. Basically, you do not rely on your parents’ or friends’ prayers. You must maintain your own faith.
If you are sure that you are already a Christian, then great! However, if you know someone who needs to follow the steps to accepting Christ, then please share this information with them. Before God moves in your life through prayers and confessions, you must be a believer in Jesus Christ.
As Jesus says in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (NKJV). Through Jesus Christ, you are made right with God. You are free from sin or the wrong things you do. You are free from shame, guilt, condemnation or feeling bad about yourself.
You are free to live, love and prosper! Jesus came and died to give you abundant life. All you need to do is have faith that the following words you speak will invite the spirit of Christ into your heart and save your soul from sin and death, so that you have access to heaven and all of the good things God wants you to have here on earth. Yes, accepting Christ is easy. But, living the Christian life is difficult, because this world is hard and filled with darkness.
However, there is good news! Through your faith in Christ and the words you speak, you have victory over every bad situation or challenge in your life! God has given us power to conquer any darkness or evil that comes against us in our minds or through other people by our faith in Jesus Christ. After you have accepted Christ, connect with other right-minded, Christian believers to help you keep the faith.
