I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the
life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave
himself for me.
Pray: Lord Jesus, thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I believe God raised You from the dead. I ask You to come into my life and be my Lord and Savior forever. Amen.
If you just prayed that prayer and really meant it, Jesus Christ has now taken residence
in your heart! Not only that, but he has forgiven you of all your sin. The Bible tells us,
"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from
all unrighteousness" (1 John 1:9). God also promises, "As far as the east is from the west,
so far has He removed our transgressions from us" (Psalms 103:12).
Your decision to receive Christ also means that you are now going to Heaven one day.
That's a lot to be thankful for! You need to take some practical steps to grow strong
spiritually: read the Bible, pray, and go to church.
