Here's how to start your journey with the Master Trainer, Jesus
your sin against God's holiness, purity and goodness to receive His forgiveness.
"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
"The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord."
No one has or can live the perfect life God requires. God wants you to admit you need to be rescured from this condition called sin.
"Come to me all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens and I will give you rest."Matthew 11:28
You must believe on the Lord Jesus Christ in your heart.
"God so love the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life."John 3:16
You must confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and Savior.
"That if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses resulting in salvation." Romans 10:9-10
"We become right with God not by doing what the law commands, but by faith in Jesus Christ." Galatians 2:16
Believe Jesus died on the cross to rescue you from sin and to restore your broken relationship with God. Now God invites you to:
"Believe on the Lord Jesus and you will be saved." Acts 16:31
"For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God." Ephesians 2:8
Here's Gods'promise to you:
Änyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."Romans 10:13
"In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace. "Ephesians 1: 7
God wants you to receive his gifts of pardon and peace, thanking him for his rescue in Jesus.
All you have to do is ask and receive. Pray something like the prayer below.
PRAY A PRAYER OF FAITH:
Lord Jesus , I have never come to you to enter into a relationship based on faith. I pray my first prayer of faith by recognizing that I am a sinner, and unable to do anything to save myself according to Romans 3:10. By faith I chose to believe that salvation is a gift and I can do nothing to earn it. I believe that you paid the price for my sins on the Cross of Calvary, and ask your forgiveness through your shed blood according to Ephesians 1:7.
I receive Jesus Christ into my heart to save me, and cleanse me. I pray that you would fill me with the Holy Spirit, according to John 1:12. Empower me with faith to live by your word and commandments. I trust you to lead me daily in my life, by making you Lord of my life. Now take the reins of my life and I will allow you to train me as only a Master Trainer can. Thank you Lord Jesus for saving my soul.
In Jesus name, Amen
Congratulations you are now in the family of God. He knew you were coming. Before he created the universe, God had you on his heart. He wanted you to enjoy a perfect, endless life with him.
It says in Ephesians 1:4-6 " Just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him, in love. He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. "
Now I encourage you to talk with a Christian friend or pastor about all the many other wonderful things God in love wants for you. Read the Bible, asking God to speak to you. He will! (You might start in the book of John or Romans.)
I hope you will attend one of our Spirit Horse Retreats so that you can grow even more in your faith.
May God bless you on your new journey with the Master Trainer.
Hang on it will be the ride of a lifetime filled with joy and peace even when the trials of life come your way.
Remember heaven is real and you are on your way there now. It will be awesome to celebrate the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ forever and ever.
