Part 7: How Can I Have A Relationship With Jesus?

Now that you know something about Jesus and realize that He wants to be your Savior and Lord, are you ready to start a new life with Him? It is easy. Remember that because Jesus paid the penalty for our sin when He died on the cross, God is able to offer us eternal life that we did not earn, “the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23b) Since it is a gift, all we have to do is receive it. How do we receive this gift?

The Bible tells us, “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10) It is very simple.

.... 1) Confess you are a sinner and need a Savior from death
.... 2) Believe, that Jesus is Lord (God), that He died for your sin, and was raised from the dead
.... 3) Ask Jesus to forgive your sins and apply His death in your place

That’s all it takes to have your sin forgiven, gain a new life, and begin a relationship with the Lord. After you do that, start reading the Bible and praying each day so your relationship with Jesus can grow. (See the “Where to Start Reading” link)

Just like you have to communicate with people if you want them to be your friends, we need to do the same with Jesus. He communicates with us through the Bible and we communicate with Him by praying. (Don’t worry, prayer is not anything fancy, it is simply telling Jesus what is on your heart. Thank Him for blessings, ask for forgiveness for wrongs, and seek His guidance with decisions.) Start with a few minutes of Bible reading and prayer at a set time each day to get a good habit going consistently. Then, feel free to expand your time.
