How Can I Be Saved or Be Born Again?
What does it mean to receive salvation and be born again? John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever shall believe on Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.”
Being saved is God’s will for your life; He loves you and wants you to have eternal life with Him in heaven! You may tell people “Well, I’m going to heaven because I’m a good person,” John 3:3 says “Jesus answered and said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
“What do I do to be born again?” you ask. The answer is so simple. Romans 10:9-10 tells us, “That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart, you believe unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” Matthew 7:8 tells us “If you ask, you shall receive…”
There are three simple steps to being saved:
- Acknowledge in your heart that Jesus is the Son of God.
2. Confess with your mouth that Jesus is the Son of God.
3. Believe that Jesus died for your sins and that God raised Him from the dead.
If you agree with those steps you are ready to pray for your salvation.
Speak to God from your heart and repeat this prayer:
“Dear God, I know that I have sinned against you and am deserving of punishment. But Jesus Christ took the punishment that I deserve so that through faith in Him I could be forgiven. With your help, I turn away from my sin and place my trust in You for salvation. Thank You for Your wonderful grace and forgiveness. In Jesus name, Amen!”
