"For God loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosever believeth in him
should not perish, but has everlasting life."
(KJV) John 14:6:
"Jesus saith unto
him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the father, but by me."
everyone is a Sinner:
(KJV) Romans 3:23:
"For all have sinned and come short
of the glory of God."
Third, ask Jesus Christ's forgiveness and repent of your sin:
(KJV) Romans 10:13:
"For whosever shall call upon the name
of the Lord shall be saved."
that sin has a price that must be paid:
(KJV) Romans 6:23:
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord."
Fifth, realize that Jesus Christ died
to pay your price:
(KJV) Romans 5:8:
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
Sixth, become a child of God by receiving Christ:
(KJV) John 1:12:
"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become sons of God, even to them that believe in his name."
Seventh, confess that Jesus is
(KJV) Romans 10:9:
if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."
Finally, if you want to receive salvation and believe in Jesus Christ was raised from the dead. And truly believe Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life: and no man cometh unto his father, but by him." Than recite the
"Sinner's Prayer" with true conviction.
