Questions and Prayer Concerning Salvation
Why do we have to be born again?
Adam sinned thus making us sinful by nature, Roman 5:12, Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all have sinned.
Can I obtain salvation and inherit eternal life by good works and deeds?
Titus 3:5, Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy he saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit. Romans 3:23, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Ephesians 2:8, For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.
How can I be born again?
First admit that you’re a sinner in need of a Savior, and that you’re separated from God by sin. Next receive Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior. John 1:12, But as many as received him, to them, He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name. Romans 10:9-10, 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.
If you have decided to receive Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior then why not pray this prayer:
“Lord God thank you sending your Son Jesus to die for me, I invite you Jesus into my life as my personal Lord and Savior, I now realize without you I would have been lost forever. Lord Jesus baptize me with the Holy Spirit so that I can live for you, I also need your help in finding a church home where I can grow in grace. Now take full and complete control of my life in Jesus name, Amen!
