How To Give Your Life To God

Salvation is the only way to have true peace with God. You will never be right with God by doing good things, you will never be right with God by going to church, and you will never be right with God by simply believing in Jesus Christ as a “good teacher.”

How To Give Your Life To God

Understand that you are a sinner.

Remember that sin is a violation of God’s law. Sin is rebellion against God. Think about this: When you have a relationship with someone, you naturally want to please them. When they’re upset at something you did, it is not good for the relationship and can even lead to its end.

The same is true in our relationship with Jesus Christ—we want to please Him because we love Him so much! We know He loves us and wants what’s best for us in life (Matthew 7:7). Sinning means we are missing the mark—falling short of what God expects from us (Romans 3:23). It is also an act of rebellion against His authority over our lives (Romans 6:16-20).

Understand that God sent His son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place.

  • God sent His son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place. Jesus is the only way to God. When you believe in Him and receive Him into your life as Lord, He becomes your substitute and takes the punishment for all of your sins that are against God’s law (the Ten Commandments).
  • When you ask Jesus Christ to forgive all of your sins and give up control of your life by trusting Him completely with everything you do from now on—you will never have another bad thought or desire ever again. You will be set free from sin when you invite Him into your heart and mind (Romans 10:9-10; John 3:16).
  • Since He died for our sins then rose again on the third day, we have peace with God through faith in Him alone because now we know He has forgiven us fully so we no longer have anything holding us back from walking with Him daily as a child should walk close beside their parents!

Repent of your sins, turn away from them and turn towards God.

Repentance is a change of mind, a change of heart, and a change of life. It’s not just saying “I’m sorry” or feeling bad about something you’ve done. Repentance is a decision to turn away from your sins and towards God. You can repent right now! Just ask Him to forgive you for your wrongs (and believe that He will), then commit yourself to living differently in the future.

To repent means:

  • Turning away from sin and turning towards God

Ask Jesus to forgive you and save you from the power and consequence of sin.

Ask Jesus to forgive you and save you from the power and consequence of sin.

The power of sin is not just that it leads us away from God, but that it actually separates us from Him. The Bible says in Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death.” It’s like being on an island with no boat or bridge to get back home.

Sin also has consequences for our lives here on earth: sickness, disease and death; as well as loss of friendship with God and others because we have turned away from them in our stubbornness or ignorance. Sin has a way of making us feel alone even when surrounded by people who love us dearly!

Jesus died so that all those who believe in Him may be forgiven by His grace (His undeserved favor) through faith (believing). He defeated death so that those who believe in Him may live life abundantly—freely given eternal life through His sacrifice which was once for all time but will never end because He lives forevermore!

Ask Jesus to come into your heart and life as Lord and Savior.

Ask Jesus to come into your heart and life as Lord and Savior.

You can pray this prayer: “Dear God, I know that I’m a sinner and I need to ask for forgiveness. Thank you that through Jesus Christ, you have made a way for me to be forgiven of my sins by what he did on the cross. Right now, in front of other people who also believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, I want to ask him into my heart as Lord of my life. Thank you God!”

Salvation is the only way to have true peace with God.

  • Salvation is the only way to have true peace with God.
  • Salvation is not a ticket to heaven. It’s the gift of God, which He offers freely and out of love (John 3:16).
  • Salvation is a free gift that can’t be earned or deserved by any means—it’s an act of grace (Romans 3:23; Titus 3:5).

Conclusion

Hopefully, you now know that God loves you and wants you to have a relationship with Him. It doesn’t matter what your past is like, or the mistakes that you have made. God sent His son Jesus (John 3:16) to die in your place so that you could be forgiven of all the wrong things you did. In return for this forgiveness, it is expected of us that we follow Christ as Lord and Savior (Romans 10:9). Salvation is a free gift offered by God. You don’t earn it; all it takes is a simple decision to give your life over to Him!
