How to Receive Christ


How to Receive Christ

Within a 3-chapter discussion (Romans 9,10,11), we are told how to personally receive the Lord Jesus Christ:

"If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.  For with the heart one believes to righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made to salvation" (Romans 10:9-10).  We are to BELIEVE in Jesus Christ.

The Bible says in Romans 10:13, "Whoever calls on the Name of the Lord shall be saved."  In coming to Him (truly giving ourselves to Him), we are saved.

Also in that context is Romans 10:17, where it says "Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God." We study the Bible, the Word of God, to learn about Jesus.   

The most famous verse on salvation is John 3:16 -
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."

Salvation is having faith in Jesus Christ.  In a great chapter on faith (Hebrews 11:1 and forward) we learn "Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."  "Faith" itself is evidence that we now belong to Him.  Jesus is the "Author" of our faith (Hebrews 12:3).

Pray this prayer:

Father, I come to you right now, in the Name of Jesus Christ. I need You, Lord.  I am so tired.  I have sinned, Lord, and my sins are before me.  I cannot bear them, and I give myself to You, Who died for my sins and for me.  I am Yours, Lord, and You are mine.  I surrender my life to You, my Savior.  I receive You now into my heart and life.  In Jesus Name.  Amen.

Let us know your decision; tell us the good news.

Jesus Christ is praying for you that the Holy Spirit will fill you and help you.  Jesus said, "I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever, the Spirit of Truth, whom the world it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you" (John 14:16-17).

Study the Bible and pray for understanding: "Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth" (2 Timothy 2:15).
