Have you put your faith in Jesus Christ? God loves you, so He sent His Son, Jesus, to restore your relationship with Him ( John 3:16).
The good news is, the hard part has already been done. Jesus went to the cross to pay the full penalty for your entire life of sin. By believing Jesus completely paid for all that’s wrong with you, you receive all that’s right with Him and enjoy His perfect standing with His Father. It’s a gift purely by grace; you cannot earn it or maintain it by your efforts. As generously as it’s given, it must be wholeheartedly received. If you’re ready to receive the gift of salvation in Jesus Christ, believe in your heart and say,
“Lord God, I am a sinner. I believe You sent Your Son, Jesus Christ, to pay the price for all my sin. I believe He paid my debt in full on the cross and I’m forgiven all forever. Jesus is my Lord and Savior and I can rest in what He’s done for me. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
If you prayed that prayer, I welcome you to the family! I’m so excited for you! There’s nothing like reading God’s word and doing life in the company of other believers. I encourage you to find a church that preaches Jesus and the gracious gospel He came to give us. And please share your good news with me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Grace and peace, Vanessa.
