Turn from sin, confess sin, and turn from yourself to God with all of your heart, soul, mind, and strength.
2 Chronicles 7:14
“If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
Faith is transferring your trust from your own efforts to the efforts of Christ. You were relying on other things to make you acceptable, but now you consciously begin relying on what Jesus did for your acceptance with God
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”
"I see I am more flawed and sinful than I ever dared believe, but that I am even more loved and accepted than I ever dared hope. I turn from my old life of living for myself. I have nothing in my record to merit Your approval, but I now rest in what Jesus did on the cross by dying for my sin in my place, and I ask to be accepted into God's family for His sake."
“For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
1. Your accounts are cleared, your sins are wiped out permanently, and you are adopted legally into God's family. We have peace with God (Romans 5:1) and Eternal Life (John 5:24).
2. The Holy Spirit enters your heart and begins to change you into the character of Jesus by conforming us to the image of Jesus (Romans 8:28).
