It's true [John 3:16]. He died as a ransom for sin to pay the price that we couldn't pay [Romans 3:23]. Because the penalty for sin is death [eternal punishment], but the gift of God, His Son, is everlasting life [Romans 6:23]. The Bible says that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved [Romans 10:9-10] [1 Corinthians 15:3-4]. But we cannot earn this gift in any way, it's by God's grace that we receive it[Ephesians 2:8-9]. If you believe these things, that you are a sinner, in need of a Savior. That Jesus Christ came to earth and shed His blood by dying on a Cross for your forgiveness, and has been raised again. Then you must repent, God died for you, just confess your sins and have faith in Jesus and receive the gift of salvation.
God, I know I'm a sinner in need of a Savior. I know that I could never repay the debts for my sins, and that you died on the cross and rose again as my atonement for sins. Please forgive me. I give up my life to you. Please cleanse my heart. I ask that you come into my life and be my Lord and Savior. In Jesus name, Amen.
If you truly believed what you just said then you are now born again [2 Corinthians 5:17]. You are now a new creation in Christ, bought by His blood, but, now what?
