Step 2: Forgiveness and a New Life in the Lord Jesus

I cannot imagine God Himself coming down to pay my punishment for all my sins! I remember my sinful life – all the wrong thoughts I have ever had in my heart. All the wrong things I have ever said and done against God’s moral laws. They are like a heavy burden on my back! They have left a dark stain on my heart! My heart breaks. I am so sorry for all my sins for which the Lord Jesus had to die! I repent in tears. I humbly ask the Lord Jesus to forgive me for all my sins. He sees my broken heart and gladly forgives me.

The Bible tells us: “If we confess our sins, the Lord Jesus is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and will make us pure.” 1 John 1:9. Joy fills my heart. God has forgiven me! My mountain of sins is gone forever! I am washed clean! I am a new person!  I do not want to sin anymore!  I want to live for the Lord Jesus. I gladly give my life to Jesus, my Lord, and Savior. I have a new life! I have left my old sinful life. I have turned away from all the gods and all the material things I used to worship. None of them can save me from my sins. Only the Lord Jesus can.

Now I want to worship and follow only the Lord Jesus. He promises me that when I die I will go to heaven to live with Him forever – because my sins are gone and I am clean and pure in His sight!

Prayer: “Thank You, Lord Jesus, for saving me and for giving me a new life! I want to live for You, Lord.”
