I Need Hope

No matter who you are, what you’ve done, or how bad your circumstances seem, there is always hope. You’re not here by accident. God loves you. He wants you to have a personal relationship with Him through Jesus, His Son. There is just one thing that separates you from God. That one thing is sin.


Trust Jesus Christ today! Here’s what you must do:

1. Admit you are a sinner.

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God;” (Romans 3:23)
“Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned.” (Romans 5:12)
“If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (1 John 1:10)

2. Be willing to turn from sin (repent).

Jesus said: “I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.” (Luke 13:5)
“In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent.” (Acts 17:30)

3. Believe that Jesus Christ died for you, was buried, and rose from the dead.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
“That if you confess with you mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in  your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9)

4. Through prayer invite Jesus into your life to become your personal Savior.

“For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.” (Romans 10:10)
“For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Romans 10:13)

What to pray:Dear God, I am a sinner and need forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ shed His precious blood and died for my sin. I am willing to turn from sin. I now invite Christ to come into my heart and life as my personal Saviour.


“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”
 (John 1:12)
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)

 


 

If you have received Jesus Christ as your Savior, as a Christian you should:

1. Read your Bible every day to get to know Christ better.

“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15)
“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” (Psalms 119:105)

2. Talk to God in prayer every day.

“If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” (Matthew 21:22)
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” (Philippians 4:6)

3. Be baptized, worship, fellowship, and serve with other Christians in a church where Christ is preached and the Bible is the final authority.

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 28:19)
“Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another-and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”(Hebrews 10:25)
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.” (2 Timothy 3:16)

4. Tell others about Christ.

“He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.'” (Mark 16:15)
“I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes, first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.” (Romans 1:16)
