Some of us will miss heaven by about twelve inches. That’s the approximate distance between our head and our heart. Oh, we go to church, take note of the sermon and sing choruses with gusto, but we never make the decision to have a personal relationship with Jesus.
It’s not hard. All we have to do is ask!
We’re counting on your promise Lord, in Romans 10:9. You said that if we acknowledge and confess with our lips that Jesus is Lord and in our heart believe (adhere to, trust in, and rely on the truth) that you, God, raised Him from the dead, we will be saved.
Dear God, I admit that I am a sinner. Please forgive my sins. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that he was raised from the dead and is alive right now. Thank you for forgiving my sins and sending your Holy Spirit to live in me. AMEN!
