Salvation is a free gift from God. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can we be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into one’s life by faith.
See Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6; John 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26.
If you know that you have sinned, that this sin has caused a separation between you and God, and you are ready to turn from this sin and begin a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, you are ready for salavation. If so, talk to God now! In your own heart talk to God and say something like this:
"God, I know that I have sinned, and my sin has separated me from you. Today I am making a decision to walk away from that sin, and turn to you. Will you forgive my sin, come into my life and be my Savior. I choose to live for you from this day forward. In Jesus Name, Amen."
