Salvation through Christ
John 1:12-13 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
John 17:3 And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.
John 3:16-18; Romans 10:8-13; 2 Peter 1:2-8
Father in heaven, I thank You that by receiving You I have been given the right to be Your child. It is by Your will and no other that we are born again to eternal life through believing in Your name and who You are: Creator, Redeemer, Savior, Lord, God. Thank You, Father, for providing everything I need to have eternal life: to know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, Your only begotten Son, whom You sent to be our Savior. Thank you, Jesus for coming to show us the Father’s love, and not only living a perfect life but being the perfect sacrifice to take away the sins of the whole world, including my sins. And not only did You die, but You were buried and raised up and exalted to the highest place at the right hand of the throne of God as Lord of all.
*As Lord of my life, Jesus, I yield to Your authority over every area of my life, and I submit to Your control. Show me areas in my life that I need to submit to you: _________ (listen and obey!) I repent and turn from all my sins and want to be obedient to all You have commanded. And as I do, I thank You, that You give me Your Spirit to empower me to do it. Live in me in the fullest way possible so that Your life may be seen in me and that others are drawn to know and trust You also. Use me Lord in Your Kingdom, however You choose. I am Yours. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
