How Do I Receive Christ?
First, you must acknowledge your sin to God. You admit to God that you have broken His laws and failed to live in the way that He has commanded in His word.
Second, you must believe that Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty for your sin and rose on the third day from the grave. Since our sin is against a holy eternal God, a holy eternal sacrifice is required to pay the penalty. Jesus is that sacrifice. The fact that He rose from the grave proved God the Father accepted the payment.
Third, because you believe this, you make the choice to turn from your life of sin and rejection of Jesus, ask for forgiveness of your sin and make a commitment to trust in Jesus Christ as your savior.
You are saved by God’s grace and it is received through faith. God does the saving, we do the receiving by believing.
