Receiving Jesus in your heart as your personal saviour is the best decision a person can make in his entire life.
Besides bringing joy into your life for becoming a Christ follower, there are many other things that happens when you receive the Jesus in your heart. These things will full your life with more and more blessings because they are God’s promises for you.
1- God forgives all your sins
Receiving Jesus in your heart gives you the privilege of becoming a new creature (2 Corinthians 5:17). God forgives all your sins, all the bad things you did in the past, erases them, and brings them into memory no more (Isaiah 43:25). In other words, God gives you a new white sheet of paper for you to start to write new and good things in your lile by living according to God’s will.
2- You become a child of God
The Bible is the written Word of God. There, God says, that when a person receives the gift of salvation through Jesus, immediately that person becomes His child (John 1:12). That means that now you have a Heavenly Father that takes care of you and all your needs. He is the good Father, you can see it in the prayer that Jesus set as an example for us to follow (Matthew 6:9-13 ). God is not like a human father, He is your Father in Heaven, He sees all, He hears all, He is everywhere, He can do everything. What a wonderful news!
3- The Holy Spirit comes to live within you
Since the moment you decide to accept Jesus, The Holy Spirit comes to live inside of you. The Holy Spirit is a very especial person, He is God himself! He is now in your life to to help your new life in Christ. He will guide you to all truth every single day of your life John (16:7-13).
4- You won’t ever be alone
This is a beautiful promess from God. He assures you that since the moment Jesus in in your life, you are no longer alone because He will be with you all the days of your life (Matthew 28:20).
5- You will go to heaven
This is the reason why Jesus came to earth, to be the way for you to go to Heaven. There is no other way to get to heaven, only through Jesus Christ!. He is not only the way, Jesus is also the truth and life…
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me (John 14:6).
For a person to get to the Father must be clean and perfect, humanly speaking, in our sinsul nature, that would be impossible. That’s why we needed Jesus, our savior. He died on the cross for the sins of all people of the world. His perfect sacrify, the blood he shadded, his death and his resurrection made the salvation of our souls possible.
Since the moment you receive Jesus in your life, God doesn’t see you anymore, He sees the perfection of His son Jesus in you. Jesus is who justifies you before the Father and gives you direct access to Him. Jesus makes you perfect!
Enjoy your new life in Christ and all the blessings!
