First, you must understand your need for a personal Savior. The Bible is very clear that we all have a huge problem called sin. Romans 3:23 says it this way, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” This verse simply means that none of us are perfect. Are you willing to admit that?
The problem is this – sin has a high price tag. Romans 6:23a says, “For the wages of sin is death…” In other words, the price for sin is eternal death apart from God in a place called Hell – not a good thing! Because of our sin, none of us can make it into Heaven alone.
Here’s the good news – God sent help! The rest of Romans 6:23 says, “…but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Again in Romans 5:8 God says, “But God demonstrated His love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” This leads us to the second step.
Know that Jesus Christ wants to be your Savior and trust Him alone to save you! Jesus Christ came to earth as God in the flesh, lived a perfect life, and then voluntarily died on a cross because He loves you. In His death, He literally paid for all of your sins. Three days later, He arose from the dead, conquering sin and death. The Bible promises in Romans 10:13, that all those who “call on his name, shall be saved.” You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Humble yourself before God as a needy sinner and turn to Jesus Christ by faith, calling on His name for His free gift of salvation.
Romans 10:9-10, “That if you will confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and will believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
