Prayer of Salvation
If you do not know Jesus as your Savior and Lord, simply pray the following prayer in faith, and Jesus will be your Lord!
Heavenly Father, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. Your Word says, "Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Acts 2:21). I am calling on You. I pray and ask Jesus to come into my heart and be Lord over my life according to Romans 10:9-10: "If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God has raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." I do that now. I confess that Jesus is Lord, and I believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead.
I am now reborn! I am a Christian—a child of Almighty God! I am saved! You also said in Your Word, "If ye then being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: HOW MUCH MORE shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?" (Luke 11:13). I’m also asking You to fill me with the Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit, rise up within me as I praise God. I fully expect to speak with other tongues as You give me the utterance (Acts 2:4). In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
8 Scriptures That Celebrate Your New Life in Christ
It’s time to celebrate your new life in Christ! Think about it: By accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you joined God’s family. You became one of His kids, and that adoption afforded you many privileges. Just look at what the Word has to say about your new life in Christ!
1. You enjoy freedom, not condemnation!
Romans 8:1-2: “So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death.”
2. You have been made right with God.
2 Corinthians 5:21: “For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.”
3. Resurrection power is yours!
Ephesians 1:19-23: “I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come. God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself.”
4. The Holy Spirit lives in you!
Romans 8:11: “The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.”
4. God has good plans for your life!
Jeremiah 29:11: “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord. ‘They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.’”
5. God honors you!
1 Samuel 2:30: “I will honor those who honor me.”
6. God lifts you out of every kind of lack!
Psalm 113:6-8: “He stoops to look down on heaven and on earth. He lifts the poor from the dust and the needy from the garbage dump. He sets them among princes, even the princes of his own people!”
7. You are united with Jesus!
Ephesians 2:6: “For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus.”
Begin standing in faith on these scriptures. Read them. Memorize them. Ask the Lord to reveal their truth to you. Then thank Him for all the good things you now have access to as a result of your new life in Christ!
Understanding My Salvation
Congratulations on your Salvation! Have you ever loved someone so much that you had the thought, I would give my life for him (or her)? A spouse? A child? A country? It is the greatest expression of love—to die so that someone else can live (John 15:13). That’s what Jesus did for you and every other human being. He took the blame for every sin—each wrong decision, each hateful thought, each horrific act. Jesus became our substitution. Jesus became your substitution. Just look at what that means for you:
HIS SUBSTITUTION.....YOUR IDENTIFICATION
Jesus died….to make you alive.
He was made sin with your sinfulness….to make you righteous with His righteousness.
He became weak….to make you strong.
He suffered shame….to give you glory.
He went to hell….to take you to heaven.
He was condemned….justify you and set you free.
He was made sick with your sickness…. so may be healed and live in divine health.
He was cast out of the presence of God….to make you welcome there.
Think about these truths right now. Begin meditating on what Jesus’ sacrifice means to your life. Take time to thank Him for all that He has done. You can pray this prayer: Jesus, I thank You that You are my Lord and Savior. I thank You that You died, so I could live. I thank You that You were made sin so I could be made righteous. I recognize that You became weak, suffered shame and were condemned, so I could live strong, justified, free and healed. I understand that You went to hell, so I could enjoy the presence of God. I’m so thankful, Jesus, for all You have done for me. I know I could never earn any of it, and so I give You the glory for all that You’ve done, for all that I have, and for all that I am. I love and praise You.
As you meditate on and study all that Jesus means to you, we at Victory pray that God, in His faithfulness, will reveal what it means to have Jesus as your substitution. May you embrace the fullness of His mercy, His grace, His faithfulness and His love. God bless you!
