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.
