There is a hymn we sing at church He Keeps Me Singing. The chorus is this:
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus
Sweetest Name I know
Fills my every longing
Keeps me singing as I go.
When ever I have been through a hard time in life -JESUS- is the one that keeps the smile on my face. He continues to mold me and make me better. I am more loving, caring and kind because of HIS goodness.
Do you know Jesus? When I was sixteen years old I asked Jesus to save me. That is when my personal relationship started with him.
How did I do all this?
First I acknowledged that I was a sinner:
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God - Romans 3:23
There is a price to pay for sin:
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. - Romans 6:23
Jesus paid that price and all we have to do is believe on Him:
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. - Romans 5:8
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. - John 3:16
God only requires that you accept Jesus as your personal Savior.
It is as simple as saying a prayer:
I know I am a sinner and don't deserve Heaven. Please forgive me for my sin, and come into my heart. Thank you for saving my soul! Amen!
