HOW CAN I BEGIN MY FRIENDSHIP WITH JESUS?
Becoming friends with Jesus is as simple as A, B, C! There is no right or wrong way. Talk to Him!
He loves you so much and wants you to accept His friendship!
A - Admit
B - Believe
C - Choose
ADMIT you have made mistakes (the Bible calls this sin). These are the wrong things we have thought, said, and done. Romans 3:23 says, All people have sinned and are not good enough for God’s glory.
BELIEVE that Jesus died on the cross to take the punishment for your sin. John 3:16 says, For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son. God gave his Son so that whoever believes in him may not be lost, but have eternal life.
CHOOSE to accept His gift of forgiveness and friendship with God! Romans 6:23 says,
The payment for sin is death. But God gives us the free gift of life forever in Christ Jesus our Lord.
You might like to pray this simple prayer:
Sorry for my sin. I admit that I've made mistakes.
Thank you for dying on the cross to take the punishment for my sin. I believe in you.
Please forgive me and be my friend. I choose to accept your gift of eternal life and be with you forever.
It's as simple as that! If you're not sure you're really saved, read Romans 10:9.
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and if you believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from death, then you will be saved.
If you know someone who is a friend of Jesus, talk to them about it. Ask them to help you pray to Him, read the Bible and find a church to attend so you can meet other Christians and grow in your faith!
