Without knowing Jesus Christ as your personal savior, you are separated from God. Your sin has caused this separation. The Bible explains that without Christ a person is spiritually dead and hopeless in this world and eternity. Salvation is God's remedy for your sin.
God sent His only Son to this earth. Jesus lived a perfect life. He died an excruciating death on a cross to pay for the sin you and I committed. He was raised from dead three days later proving that the sacrifice was sufficient to cover the debt you and I owed God. Your sin has been paid for but you have to receive the gift of salvation. Then, God breathes in you true life.
You are saved by admitting to God that you need salvation, believing that Jesus died for you and rose again, and surrendering your life to live for Jesus.
If you want Jesus as your Lord and Savior, pray something like this from your heart:
“Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. I know that I have done things wrong in my life. But today I come to you and ask you to forgive me of my sin, to come into my life, and be my Lord and Savior. I turn from my sinful life and ask You to put Your Spirit in me. Today I place all my faith and all my trust in you. Come into my life, change me, and make me a brand new person. Amen.”
