Knowing Jesus

If you have read one or more of the stories on this website of how Jesus has made a difference in people’s lives, you may want to take the step of making Him Lord of your own life.

This is not something to take lightly or enter into without realising what it is you are doing. But if you are ready to do so, you can make today the day that you acknowledge your sin, repenting from leaving God out of your life, asking for and accepting His forgiveness and choosing to trust Him with your life – making Him Lord over every aspect of it. He is completely faithful and trustworthy – so you are in good hands!

You can do this by praying the following prayer:

Lord Jesus Christ, here I am, I can come no other way, so take me as I am. Thank you for loving me even though I haven’t loved you. You know the things I have done which are not great and have not been pleasing in your eyes. I ask that you forgive me for all the selfish and sinful things that I have done of which some are still in my life. Thank you for forgiving me and coming into my life. Help me now as I start over again, but this time with you at the centre. No longer am I going to go my own way. Today I am deciding to follow you by asking you to be my saviour and Lord. Lord Jesus, send your Holy Spirit, to help me know without doubt that you have come into my life. Amen.

If you have said this prayer and meant it I would like to say you have just made one of the best decisions you will ever make in your life time – Congratulations!

But, that’s not the end of it. God wants you to get to know Him more and to reveal more of who He is to you. By praying the above prayer, you’re not simply getting a ticket to Heaven, but you’re choosing from this moment on to put God first in your life and giving Him control. It’s really important to get along to a local church and have someone help you along in your new journey with God.
