Do you know Jesus? I'm not asking if you know about Jesus; I want to know if you know Him! There's a difference! Years ago, I came to the knowledge of Jesus after watching a minister on television share God's love—and it completely changed my life.

I grew up all my life hearing about God, but after that experience, I could say, "I know Him. He has come into my life and changed my heart." The experience showed me that anybody, no matter how bad, can be changed by the power of God.

If you've come here and you're looking for a change, I want you to know that God is ready and willing to help you—right now, wherever you are. It doesn't matter what you've done in your life—it's forgivable. It's even forgettable.

God loves you and He made a plan to absolve you of all guilt and shame—to wash away your sins and give you a life worth living.

God knows about everything that has brought you to this very moment, and He loves you. He understands your feelings and wants to help you to live a better life, but He isn't pushy. He won't force Himself upon you.

God is waiting for you to be at the place where you are willing to recognize His plan, call out to Him and invite Him into your life.

What Is God's Plan?
God's plan was to redeem mankind from sin through the sacrificial life and death of His only Son, Jesus. John 3:16 says, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever shall believe on Him shall not perish but have everlasting life."

God loved us so much; He wanted to give us His best. That's why He sent Jesus. Jesus died on the cross for the sins of the world. There was no greater sacrifice to the Father God than to give up His only Son.

Through Jesus' sacrificial death on the cross and resurrection from the grave, mankind was given an opportunity to be redeemed from sin.

God tells us in His Word that sin must be paid for, and the only payment acceptable in His eyes is the blood of Jesus.

When we accept Jesus, we are accepting God's plan and God can then start working with us. Our simple faith in His plan opens the door for our heart to change, and then our life can start changing too.

God gave His best when He gave us Jesus Christ, and now there is nothing else we can do to earn His grace. Jesus earned it for us. He took our blame and our sins. He died and rose again so that we might be free and clear in God's sight.

Now, all we have to do is realize our need for God and accept that Jesus Christ's death and resurrection is His plan for our redemption—and go to Him in prayer.

Romans 10 tells us:
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath 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.
(vv. 9-10)
Sometimes people make this difficult, but God has made it very simple. All He asks is that you believe that Jesus took your sins in your heart and confess it with your mouth. Together, these things bring about redemption. Together, they open the doorway so that you can be redeemed.

Are you ready to pray to God right now? If so, take a moment to talk to God from your heart. Let him know that you want Him to be a part of your life and you believe that Jesus came to die for your sins too.

Just be sincere, and you will receive salvation. If you need help, here is a simple prayer that you can use as a guide:
"Lord Jesus, I know that I need You. I've done things my own way up until now, and I realize that I need your love and forgiveness in my life. I believe that You died for my sins on the cross, and I ask you to forgive me of my sins.

"I don't want to live the way I have been living. I want to turn away from this old life and live right before You.

"I am trusting You and I am making a decision to follow You, Jesus. So, I ask You to come into my life and make a change in my heart right now. Thank you, Jesus. Thank you for dying for me and for being there, right now, for me.

"I accept You as my Lord and Savior! I accept that your Word is true and I will begin to follow you from this moment forward! Thank you for coming into my life. Thank you for receiving me into your family, God! In Jesus' name I pray, Amen."
If you just prayed this prayer with your heart and confessed it with your mouth, you've done what the Bible says and you have been redeemed. You're saved. You've been adopted into the family of God. You can be confident that you will live eternally with God.

Starting from this very moment, you have changed. You may not feel anything, but that doesn't change the fact that God has accepted you because you've accepted His Son.

Salvation is not a matter of feeling; it's a matter of faith. If you've made the decision to serve Christ, now you can be assured that no matter what you've done in your life your sin has been completely washed away. You've got a clean slate now.

Ephesians 2:8-9 puts it this way, "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast."
