First, I encourage you to read Ephesians 2:1-9. The Apostle Paul does a great job of explaining why we need Christ and what it means to follow him. If you don't have a Bible, use the link below to read it online!
Knowing Christ isn't just about what you "know" in your head, it's about being willing to give you life to him, to talk to him and read his word (the Bible), and to do what he tells us to do. It isn't always easy but it is the most wonderful, powerful, peaceful thing you can ever do! He will forgive all the bad things you've done, he will fill your heart with a love you cannot describe and he will be with you always. The best part is that you don't have to be somewhere special or with specific person, you can ask Christ to come into your life right now, right where you are and have the peace of knowing that regardless of what you've done, you will spend forever with Him!
It's as easy as ABC!
A- Admit that you are a sinner and that you have not lived your life God's way.
B- Believe that Christ died for your sins and that it is only through his death and ressurection that you can enter Heaven and spend enterity with God.
C-Commit your life to following his Word and example.
You can use this prayer or simply speak from your heart, God knows what is there!
Dear Heavenly Father,
I understand that I have not lived my life the way you want me to. I realize I am a sinner and wihout your son's cleansing blood, I cannot truly know you. I believe that you sent your son to die on the cross and that he was ressurected and lives with you now in Heaven. I believe that he is the only way to You. Father, I commit my life to following You and allowing you to lead my steps. Thank you Lord for the peace that you give and for saving me from sins!
In Jesus Name, Amen
