How to Know Jesus

The following steps when taken in faith (a simple show of confidence in the impeccability and immutability of God and His word) would culminate in the NEW BIRTH.

  1. Recognize and acknowledge that you are a sinner because God says so. “As it is written, there is none righteous, No, not one: for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God”. Romans 3:10, 23.
  2. Recognise there is no salvation in any other name or method. “Neither is there salvation in any other; for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved”.  Acts 4:12
  3. Believe that Jesus Christ is the only way. “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me”. John 14:6.
  4. Believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved”. Roman 10:9.
  5. Ultimately, confess Jesus audibly as the Lord over your life. “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth, confession is made unto salvation.” For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved”. Romans 10:13.

A simple model prayer could be something like this:

Heavenly Father, I thank you for the gift of Jesus Christ. I believe I am a sinner and the sacrificial work of Jesus on the cross is for someone like me. Jesus, you who rose from the dead, save me. Please be my Lord and personal saviour. Thank you, Father, for I receive a New Heart and new Spirit by faith and I am Born again in Jesus name, Amen.
