I read that verse over and over until I suddenly realized that if God had raised Jesus from the dead 2,000 years ago, that means He was still living right now! And somehow I knew that was true! It explained why I had the urge to pray to a God I did not know. I then realized I had fulfilled step one – I believed! Now I needed to complete step two – speak the name of Jesus, calling Him “Lord”. So I opened my mouth and called out His name “Lord Jesus, Lord Jesus!” I felt as if a heavy lead hat had been lifted off my head! I was ecstatic, happy, as if walking on air. I knew that I had been saved! No more fear of hell, no more fear of sliding off icy highways, no more visions of a lake burning with fire and brimstone. God accepted me and I had received Him. I was born again!
TWO SIMPLE STEPS
Dear reader, you may have heard that God is a God of love. And that He is! He desires that all men be saved. He loved us so much that He gave His only Son to die on our behalf, to suffer God’s wrath on our behalf. God’s Son Jesus suffered on our behalf so we do not have to suffer nor be cast into that lake of hellish fire. That fiery, terrible place does not need to be your eternal destiny. You simply need to open, receive and accept the work that Jesus accomplished on the cross for you. Just follow these two simple steps: 1) open your heart to believe that God has raised Jesus from the dead (that He is living now to save you) and 2) open your mouth to confess his name “Lord Jesus!”. Now, please pray this prayer:
“Lord Jesus, I open to you. I thank you that you love me and died for me. I do not want to spend eternity in a fiery hell. I accept the work you did for me on the cross by taking the punishment that I deserved. I believe you are resurrected and are living now to enter into me. I confess you are the Lord, my Lord. Lord Jesus, I open to you! Save me! Fill me!
