Giving our heart to Jesus is the most important decision any of us will ever make. There are three things we need to do in order to give our heart to Jesus:
A – Acknowledge
First we need to admit to Jesus that we are a sinner. We are all sinners and that sin separates us from God. Romans 3:23 states, “for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”.
C – Confess
Second, we need to confess our sin. Romans 10:9-10 tells us, “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” When we confess our sin, we are agreeing with God that we are a sinner and that only He can save us.
T – Trust
Third is to trust in Jesus by faith to save us. The word “trust” is a wonderful word. It means that we accept what God has said and believe in our heart that God raised Jesus from the dead after He died on the cross for our sins.
The Bible says that when we trust Jesus as our savior He takes upon himself the sin of the world. That is exactly what happened when God presented Jesus on the cross to us. Jesus took upon Himself my sin and your sin, and when He died, the sin of the world died with Him. When you say, “Lord Jesus, I repent of my sin. By faith, I accept you into my heart,” you receive what Jesus has already done for you upon the cross, and you receive complete and absolute forgiveness.
Do you know Him?
If you would like to accept Jesus as your Savior, you can pray a prayer similar to this:
Dear Lord Jesus, I believe that you died on the cross just for me. I know that you love me very much. I admit to you that I am a sinner and confess my sin to you. Please come into my heart and save me as I repent of my sin. I confess that you alone are Lord and I believe that God raised you from the dead. I trust in you by faith. Now, based on the Bible, I thank you for coming into my heart. I believe that you have saved me and written my name in God’s book in Heaven. From this moment on I will never doubt your Word. In Jesus name, Amen.
