Last year my friend presented me with several handmade gift tags. Technically they were a gift to me but the only way I can use them is by giving them away on a present to someone else.
So this year I am using my own version of a gift tag to give to you… I give you today for your best Christmas ever, the gift of Salvation.
The Bible says:
“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” (Romans 10:9, NIV)
“Jesus answered and said to him, ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God'” (John 3:3, NIV)
All you have to do is pray this prayer.
Dear Lord Jesus, I do believe that you are the Son of God—-and that you died on the cross –to pay the price for my sin.
I believe that you rose from the dead —-and that you’re alive right now.
Please come into my life. Forgive my sin. — Make me a member of your family.
I now turn from going my own way. I want you to be the center of my life.
Thank you for your gift of eternal life—and for your Holy Spirit —–who has come to live in me. — Amen
Now you will want to tell someone that you prayed this prayer. That is how you confess with your mouth.
Prayer- Lord, as people pray this prayer today, let their hearts never turn from you, from following you for the rest of their time here on earth and into heaven. Amen.
