We must receive Jesus Christ as savior and Lord ; then we can know and experience God’s love and plan for our lives. We must receive Christ John 1:12 We receive Christ through faith Ephesians 2:8-9 We receive Christ by personal invitation Revelation 3:20
Receiving Christ involves turning to God from self (repentance) and trusting Christ to come into our lives to forgive our sins and to make us the kind of people. He wants us to be . Just to agree intellectually that Jesus is the Son of God and that he died on the cross for our sins is not enough. Nor is it enough to have an emotional experiences. We receive Christ by faith, as an act of the will.
You can receive Christ right now by Faith through prayer : “ Lord Jesus, I need you. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive you as my Savior and Lord. Thank you for giving my sins and the eternal life. Take control the throne of my life. Make me the kind of person you want me to be.
