Receive Jesus 

Pray this simple prayer today:

In my heart I believe that Jesus truly is Your Son and that He died for my sins and rose from the dead. I repent for every time I have sinned. I accept Jesus into my life right now, to lead and guide me as my Lord. Thank You for saving me, and thank You that You have a great plan for my life!



The Scriptures teach that we have all sinned and fallen short of God’s glorious plan for our lives (Romans 3:23). Because of sin, there was a forfeiture or a disruption of the wonderful primary purpose God had for people. The Bible says in 1 John 4:16 that God is love. Love is not an isolated element — it must find a connection and it must have expression. God made humanity so He could have someone with whom to share His love. He loved the world so dearly, that when it turned away from Him, He sent His only Son to win it back.

Jesus Became Part of the Human Race.
Jesus, God’s very own Son, became part of the human race, taking upon Himself the form of sinful man; yet He was without sin. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin, which enabled His blood to be completely pure and untainted by the sin that was initiated through Adam. Jesus is the unique Being of the universe, one hundred percent God and one hundred percent man.

Jesus Came to Save the World.
God did not send Jesus into the world to judge or condemn it, but to save it. Whoever believes in Jesus will not perish but will have everlasting life (John 3:16-17). There is salvation in no one else! Under all heaven there is no other name for men to call upon to save them (Acts 4:12). And one day, at the name of Jesus, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that He is Lord (Philippians 2:10-11).

Call on Him.
Our response to God’s provision of Jesus Christ is to accept Him just like we would receive a precious gift. For as many as receive Him, to them He gives the right and power to become the children of God (John 1:12). Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved (Romans 10:13).

Receive Jesus.
Jesus did not come to establish just another religion. He is not just one of many holy men. He is God’s Son and He is alive today! When we respond to Him and receive Him, something magnificent takes place. We are transferred out of darkness and ushered into His Kingdom (Colossians 1:13). We escape the tyranny of the devil, and our destiny changes. We’re no longer destined for hell — a Christ-less eternity separated from God — but we’re destined for a forever connection with God, filled with favor, acceptance, and love.

And even though we still must face the challenges and difficulties of life, we have a relationship with the Mighty God who upholds, strengthens, leads and guides us through all of life’s harshness.


Once you’ve taken the step of receiving Jesus, walk with Him by faith. Faith comes by hearing the Word of God (Romans 10:17). Give attention to His Word, the Bible, so that there will be a reservoir of knowledge on your lips (Proverbs 5:2). The entrance of His Word gives light and understanding (Psalm 119:130). When we receive the Word with a humble spirit, it’s able to transform and renew our minds. It shifts our lives into even greater harmony with God as we grow in our new relationship with Him. 


It is vitally important to read, meditate on, and study God’s Word. Get a Bible. Try the Scriptures in a modern version, such as the New King James Version, the New International Version or the New Living Translation. These are all great to read, and they will help you gain a good understanding of the Lord. There are Scripture references listed throughout this website. Looking them up is a good way to get started.  


Prayer is simply communicating with God. Jesus prayed all the time. If He prayed, how much more do we need to pray?! We’re certainly not above our Master. Prayer is having a conversation with a listening Father. You may have experienced frustration in prayer before you received Jesus, but now you have an open door and fellowship with God because His ear is inclined to your prayers (Psalm 10:17). Now you have access to the Father. Spend time pouring out your heart to the Lord. Go to a quiet place where you can be alone with God and regularly spend time with Him.


The Bible says that we are not to forsake the assembling together as is the habit of some (Hebrews 10:25). While it’s true that you can get to Heaven without attending church, it is equally true that you are a part of God’s family — a family of believers. As individuals, we’re meant to not only receive but also share our unique gifts, personalities, and abilities in order to strengthen and encourage each other and to accomplish much. 

Psalm 133:1 says that it’s good and pleasant when people dwell together in unity. It’s great to be around like-minded individuals who have a sincere devotion to the Lord. It reinforces our faith, bolsters our confidence, and helps us to see that God has raised up people all over the world who love Him and are not ashamed of Him. Find a good Bible-believing church and make a commitment to consistently attend.  


Water Baptism
Baptism is a significant moment in the life of a believer. Being baptized in water is an outward expression of the inward change of new life in Jesus (Galatians 3:27). The old person you once were has passed away and the new person you are in Christ is alive and well!

Water baptism is a way to demonstrate that you have aligned yourself with Jesus. For a believer, going under that water symbolizes the death of the old person before salvation. Coming up out of the water symbolizes rising up into new life in Jesus (Romans 6:4). Jesus died for us publicly. We are to live for Him outwardly, before the world.

Baptism in the Holy Spirit
Jesus promised that after He died and rose again He would send us another Helper — the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Trinity. This promise of the Holy Spirit is for every person when he or she receives Jesus as Savior. When we are born again, He comes to live within us. He comforts, guides, and teaches us and He helps us understand God’s Word and will (John 14:26; John 16:13; 1 Corinthians 2:13).

According to the Bible, the baptism in the Holy Spirit is a separate event that happens after a person has become a Christian (John 20:22; Acts 1:5). It is a baptism of power and fullness (Acts 1:8). It gives us the ability to receive and function in the gifts of the Holy Spirit so that we can benefit the global Church — the Body of Christ — and carry the message of Jesus Christ to the world (Luke 24:49; Mark 16:17). One of those abilities is speaking or praying in tongues — speaking a language that you don’t know so that you can communicate directly from your spirit to God.

The baptism in the Holy Spirit is for every believer today! God is good, and He wants you to have all the good things He has provided for you — including the Holy Spirit (Luke 11:13). Read Acts 2 to learn more about the Holy Spirit and His purpose and power.


Serving is fun! Being a giving, caring person is part of who you are as a Christian — just like Jesus. You honor God when you help people (Matthew 5:16). There’s something special about going out of your way to give your time and actively do good. It’s great for you and for those being helped. Using your unique gifts and abilities for the benefit of others is much of the reason you have them.

God so loved the world that He gave Jesus. Jesus gave His life for us. The Holy Spirit gives us wisdom and understanding. Since we are made in the image of God, we are also called to be givers like He is — liberal and generous. Giving is a meaningful expression of our love for Jesus, our trust in God, and our valuing His kingdom and the work there is to do on earth. Here are a couple of types of giving in the Bible:

  • Tithes
    The word “tithe” means “ten percent.” This giving from your income is a contribution to the work of the church you attend. To tithe is a duty, and it’s holy to the Lord. This is the one area where God says we can test His faithfulness to us (Leviticus 27:30; Malachi 3:10).
  • Offerings
    Giving in addition to your tithe is an offering, which includes giving of money or goods to the poor (Proverbs 28:27).

When you give, it remedies greed and self-centeredness. It’s better to give than receive, but we do also receive! We reap when we sow. It’s a win-win situation.


Paul the Apostle said, “I am not ashamed of the Gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile” (Romans 1:16). Jesus told us to go into all the world and preach the Gospel (Mark 16:15). It’s so important that we tell others about Jesus. When we do, what we speak gets deeply implanted in people’s hearts and lives. Look what happened to you! You heard the Gospel of Jesus in a credible way and the Holy Spirit amplified it and touched your heart.

This message of Jesus Christ is good news, but like any news, there must be newscasters to convey it. Begin to tell others what Jesus has done for you. He has restored you in a relationship with Him! He loves you and He’s going to bring great blessing in and through your life.
