If Jesus Is the Only Way to God, How Should You Respond?

If you desire to live forever in heaven with Jesus Christ, the only true Savior, we would encourage you to pray the following prayer:

Lord Jesus Christ, I humbly acknowledge that I have sinned in my thinking, speaking and acting, that I am guilty of deliberate wrongdoing, that my sins have separated me from Your holy presence, and that I am helpless to commend myself to You.
I firmly believe that You died on the cross for my sins, bearing them in Your own body and suffering in my place the condemnation they deserved.
I have thoughtfully counted the cost of following You. I sincerely repent, turning away from my past sins. I am willing to surrender to You as my Lord and Master. Help me not to be ashamed of You.
So now I come to You. I believe that for a long time You have been patiently standing outside the door knocking. I now open the door. Come in. Lord Jesus, and be my Savior and my Lord forever. Amen.[1]

He is there. He hears, and He answers.

If you have prayed this prayer we encourage you to write us directly at The John Ankerberg Show (P.O. Box 8977, Chattanooga, TN 37414). We want to help your growth as a Christian. Next, we suggest that you read a modern, easy to read translation of the Bible such as the New International Version, New Living Translation, or New American Standard Bible. Start with the New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs and then proceed to the rest of the Scriptures. Also, find a quality church where people honor the Bible and God’s Word and Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. Tell someone of your decision to follow Christ and begin to grow in your new relationship with God by talking to Him daily in prayer.
