RECEIVING THE LORD

To receive Jesus you could say a prayer like this:

Dear God, I know my lifestyle has not been acceptable to you. I realise I have committed sins that really are against you.

Please forgive me.

I change my mind about my life. I turn my back on my self-centred ways.

I believe Christ died for my sins - that He was buried - that He rose again on the third day - and that He sets me free from sin and self-centredness.

Thank you Father for forgiving me.

Jesus, come into my life - I receive you now as my Lord.

Thank you, for coming into my life and bringing eternal life.

From now on I will follow you and learn of you, firstly in the New Testament and then in the whole Bible.
