If you have never met Jesus Christ, you can know Him today. God loves you and wants to help you in every area of your life. That is why He sent Jesus to die for you. You can make your life right with God this very moment and make heaven your eternal home.
Pray this prayer now:
God, I ask you to forgive me of my sins. I believe Jesus is the Son of God and that He died on the cross for me. I receive Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior. I confess Him as Lord of my life and I give my life to Him. Thank you, Lord, for saving me and for making me new. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
Welcome to the family!
If you prayed that prayer and meant it, you’re now part of the family of God.You’re different. You’ve changed. Yes, you still look the same on the outside, but a big change has taken place on the inside. God has now moved into your life.
“Anyone who confesses (acknowledges, owns) that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides (lives, makes His home) in him and he [abides, lives, makes his home] in God.” 1 John 4:15 (AMP)
You can’t get any closer to God than that. You now have a relationship with Him that nobody can take away from you, and I encourage you to make the most of it.
You see, the choice you just made isn’t the end-it’s just the beginning. You’ll find that God has some very exciting things in store for you as you grow in your relationship with Him.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
You have a great future and a good life ahead of you in God. Go for it!
Be Filled with the Spirit
God’s will is for every believer to be filled with His Spirit. His desire is that you be continually overflowing with His Spirit. Remember, Jesus commanded the disciples not to leave Jerusalem until they had been endued with power (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4). He also said those who believe on Him should receive the Holy Spirit (John 7:39).
Ask and You Shall Receive
Knowing that it is God’s will for you to be filled with the Holy Spirit gives you confidence in asking Him to baptize you with the Holy Spirit. Jesus said your heavenly Father would give the Holy Spirit to those who would ask Him. You ask the Father to give you the Holy Spirit and have confidence you shall receive (Luke 11:9-13).
Pray this prayer to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit:
I am now reborn! I am a Christian—a child of Almighty God! I am saved! You also said in Your Word, ‘If ye then being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: HOW MUCH MORE shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?’ (Luke 11:13). I’m also asking You to fill me with the Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit, rise up within me as I praise God. I fully expect to speak with other tongues as You give me the utterance(Acts 2:4) In Jesus’ Name. Amen!”
Begin to praise God for filling you with the Holy Spirit. Speak those words and syllables you receive—not in your own language, but the language given to you by the Holy Spirit. You have to use your own voice. God will not force you to speak. Don’t be concerned with how it sounds. It is a heavenly language!
Continue with the blessing God has given you and pray in tongues each day. You are a born-again, Spirit-filled believer. You’ll never be the same!
