If you’re ready to follow Jesus, simply use your own words to do the following:
- Tell God that you are sorry for your sins – the ways you have hurt or ignored Him.
- Acknowledge that Jesus lived and died to pay the consequences of your selfishness.
- Rejoice that Jesus rose from the dead to enter eternal life and to offer it to you too!
- Finally, ask Jesus to take control of your life and to fill you in your hunger so that you can go and love others.
