Salvation is God’s free gift to you, through His only Son Jesus Christ. You can not obtain Salvation through any works or by trying to show God how good you are. It is only available by accepting that you are a sinner before making Jesus our Lord and Savior and recognizing that we cannot save ourselves.
You know the condition of your own heart, and Jesus knows. He said, “I know your works.” He’s calling many of you to repent, to change, to turn your life over to Him before it is eternally too late. Before you experience God’s judgment, I would encourage you right now as the Spirit of God is speaking to your heart—if you’re not sure about your salvation, if you’re not sure about your relationship with Jesus, or if you know that you’re not really right with God—I want you to come and have a word of prayer with God. I want you to pray for God to work in your heart and that things will be right between you and Him. You can have assurance that if you would die today, you would be with the Lord. Or if the Lord would come for His church tonight, you’d go with Him to be with Him in His kingdom forever.
Father, I come to you, confessing my sin and asking for your forgiveness. I thank You, Lord, for You have promised that if I will confess my sins, You will be faithful to forgive me and cleanse me from all unrighteousness. I want to turn from my sins, and live in a way that will please You. And so I ask for Your help, Lord. I ask that You give me the power through Your Holy Spirit to live the right way.
I thank You that Jesus Christ died on the cross, paying the price for my sins, and then rose from the dead. I accept Him now as my Savior, my Lord, and my friend.
I also thank You, because You've said that whoever comes to You, You will by no means cast out. Thank You for giving me a new life in Christ. I surrender myself to You. Make me what You want me to be in Jesus' name. Amen.
If you have decided to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior, you are now born again. Here are a few things that will help you to grow as a Christian...

The Bible is like a love letter from God. The more you read it, the more you’ll fall in love with Him. 1 Peter 2:2
You need to have friends who share your beliefs and who can encourage you. This is why it’s so important to find a good, Bible-believing church where you can meet other Christians. Hebrews 10:24-25
Share your faith in Jesus Christ with others. Pray that the Lord will reveal how you should witness and when. Mark 16:15
