to be "born again" . . .
What must I Do?
. . . Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved. . .
. . . 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.
In Other Words . . .
Acknowledge: your need — as a sinner, before God (see also — Romans 3:23, II Corinthians 5:14,15)
Accept: His agonizing work on the cross — to be your Savior, and risen Lord.
Confess: your acceptance of His lordship over you
LIVE for Him in your new life (II Corinthians 5:17)!
Pray something like this . . .
Lord Jesus, I am truly sorry for doing what was wrong in Your sight, by sinning.
Thank You for dying on the Cross for me, so that I can be forgiven.
Please do forgive me now,
save my soul,
and help me to live for You, now,
and forever, in Heaven. Amen.
. . . For the scripture says, "Whoever believes on Him will not be ashamed." . .
