At the heart of all Pastor Luke Weaver’s messages is the message of salvation. He would like to share with you how you how you, too, can come to a right relationship with God through the following steps.
- All Have Sinned.
All human beings are born with a sinful nature “All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned everyone to our own way.” and Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
- Jesus Died for You.
I Corinthians 15:3b & 4, “Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, and He was buried and that He rose again the third day.”
Acts 3:18, “God before had shown by all the prophets, that Christ should suffer, He has so fulfilled.”
John 3:16:, “For God so loved
the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
I John 1:7, “. . .the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all unrighteousness.
- Open your Heart and Mind to Jesus
Revelation 3:20, “Behold I stand at the door and knock. If any man will open the door, I will come in and sup with him and he with Me.”
Matthew 11:28-30, “Come unto me all that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and you shall find rest unto your soul. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
- Jesus said, ‘You Must be Born Again.’
The New Birth, as defined in John 3:3 and 5, is a spiritual birth. When we were born as babies we had a natural birth when we entered into this world.
So now as you ask Jesus into your heart, you will experience a spiritual birth, known as being “born again”.
Romans 10:8-10, “What saith it, the Word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is the word of faith which we preach, that if thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus Christ and shall believe in thine heart that God has raised him from the dead, thou shall be saved. For with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” See Luke 24:47 concerning repentance and remission of sin.”
- Pray to Accept Christ as
Pray this prayer with an open mind and heart:
Dear Lord Jesus, Son of the Living God, I’m sorry for all my sins. Please forgive me of all my sins. (Take time to mention the sins by name as they come to your mind.)
Lord Jesus, I know that you died for me to take away my sins. I confess with my mouth the Lord Jesus, and I believe in my heart that God has raised Him (Jesus) from the dead so I can be saved.
Come into my heart and save me now. By your help I will turn from my wrong ways, and I want to serve you all the days of my life. Thank you Lord for hearing my prayer
Now thank the Lord for receiving you, and thank Him for writing your name in the Lamb’s. book of life (Luke 10).
6) Now Tell Someone that You Asked Jesus to Come into Your Heart
Tell someone what you’ve done-that you’ve accepted Jesus into your life and that you are now a new Christian. Jesus said, “Go, tell what great things God has done for you.”
7) Start Reading Your Bible on a Daily Basis.
Develop a daily reading of the Bible, starting in the Gospel of Matthew. Each morning get down on your knees and thank God for rest, thank Him for keeping you, and ask the Lord to guide you through the day. At night, thank God again for His goodness to you and develop a prayer life with Jesus as you go through the day.
8) Find a Bible-Believing Church
Find a good Bible-believing, Bible-preaching church that believes in the power of God and the Holy Spirit.
