I often think back
to the time when my life
was filled with nothing but sin,
And the day I couldn't go on
.. didn't want to go on,
I cried for days..
so alone in this place,
carrying such an awful load.
but I knew in my heart..
that there had to be more.
It was then I called out your name,
Oh God, if you're there.. Help Me..
And I'll never forget that summer day..
That was the day.. you came into my heart,
me on my knees.. you took my hand..
lifted me, then led me out of that terrible sin
and filled my heart with a new Love.
I felt so unworthy, but now I'm reborn.
And now I know that your blood
on the cross was shed for me.
That's why.. Now I walk in Faith.
And there is nothing that can seperate me from that faith.

God grant me the serenity to accept
the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can
and the wisdom to know the difference.
Salvation is a free gift
through the shed blood of Jesus Christ.
No man can buy his way into Heaven,
but Jesus came down to Earth in His own free will
to give us Eternal Life.
All we have to do is trust Him
by Faith and accept Him into your heart
as your Personal Lord and Savior.
He has bought our ticket on the cross,
but it is up to you to claim it.
Here is how you can receive Christ if you haven't already:
1. Admit your need (I am a sinner).
2. Be willing to turn from your sins (repent).
3. Believe that Jesus died for you on the Cross and rose from the grave.
4. Through prayer, invite Jesus Christ to come into your heart
and life through the Holy Spirit.
(Receive Him as Lord and Savior.)
Just pray a pray similar to this one:
Dear Lord Jesus,
I know that I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness.
I believe that You died for my sins.
I want to turn from my sins.
I now invite You to come into my heart and life.
I want to trust & follow You as my Lord & Savior.
I know now that I have a ticket to get into Heaven.
In Jesus name. Amen.
If you prayed this prayer,
the Bible declares in Romans 10:13
"Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved"
Your sins are forgiven as it declares in Isaiah 1:18
"Come now, let us reason together," says the LORD.
"Though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red as crimson,
they shall be like wool."
You are a new creature in Christ Jesus
as it declares in 2 Corinthians 5:17
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ,
he is a new creation;
old things have passed away;
behold, all things have become new."
This is just the beginning of a wonderful new life in Christ.
To deepen this relationship you should:
1. Read your Bible everyday to know Christ better.
Start with the Gospel of John. 2.
Talk to God in prayer every day.
Bring all your troubles and worries to the Lord.
3. Tell others about Christ.
Sharing the good news of the Lord
is needed now more than ever
in this world full of trouble.
5. Be Baptized.
Baptism is an outward expression of what the Lord
has done on the inside.
Baptism symbolizes the death,
burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
(Colossians 2:10-13) (Acts 2:38)
May the Lord bless you in your life with Him.
