Yes you do, we all do! Jesus Christ is Lord & Saviour, King of Kings, there is no other name given under Heaven where by we must be saved (Acts 4).
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”. (John 14:6)
Sin will lead us to death, Hell, and eternal separation from God, but Jesus will lead us to reconciliation with God and Heaven. It is by His Mercy & Grace that God offers you salvation through the death & resurrection of Jesus Christ. Only Jesus has paid the price for sin – our transgression of His commands such as: lying, stealing, sexual immorality, unrighteous anger, unforgivness, coveting and greed, idolatry, misusing His holy name, worshipping other things in place of God, selfishness, pride etc. He paid the just price on the cross. That price was death, in order that we may be set free from the righteous judgment and punishment we deserve.
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23)
“Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (John 3,3)
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”. (John 3:16-17)
“As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” (John 1,12-13)
He loves you, and calls you to deep repentance from sin and total surrender to His Lordship. Listen to a testimony of what it means to totally surrender – Face to face encounter with Jesus Christ
Surrender your life to God, believe in your heart Jesus died on the cross for you for your sins, that God raise Him from the dead, confess Him as your Lord (Roms 10,10), ask for forgiveness and repent of all your sins. True faith is sincerely believing, repenting & surrendering yourself to Him. If you are ready, come to Him now with a prayer something like this:
Dear God, I confess that I am a sinner and separated from You because of my sins. I am truly sorry & deserve Hell, and now want to repent & forsake my sinful life and all the idols that I have been living for. Forgive me, I also forgive all who have sinned against me. I believe that your son, Jesus, died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, and is alive. I confess Jesus as my Lord and Saviour, and invite Him to reign in my heart from this day forward. Thank you Jesus, for dying for my sins and giving me Eternal Life. I will now follow you all my days. In Jesus name Amen.
The next steps
Read the bible and obey what God commands. Go to a Bible believing church, spend time in prayer and worship. Get baptised in water and in the power of the Holy Spirit. Remove personal sin from your life & grow in His grace to live holy, for God is holy. Seek to really know Him in genuine relationship. Seek to serve Him and spread His gospel to others.
“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God” (1Cor6,9-11)
I recommend you start reading the Bible by reading Jesus’s major sermon for his disciples – the sermon on the mount ( Matthew Chapters 5, 6 & 7) and with the grace of God grow in faith, hope, love & holiness, He will help you to change & grow in His likeness. He will never leave you or forsake you, He loves you! Those who have truly surrendered are His Sons, disciples, and servants. Follow him & dont look back, because you are not in heaven yet and can still choose to fall away. Once saved is not always saved, its He who endures to the end that shall be saved. (Matt 24, 13). Set your face like flint and follow Him in obedience and faith abiding in His word, full of His Spirit and grace.
