Your response includes four elements:
1. Acknowledge that you are a sinner and cannot save yourself.
2. Acknowledge that Jesus is the Son of God and only HE can save you.
3. Believe that HE was crucified for your personal sins and that HIS death was for you.
4. Acknowledge Jesus as your Lord and Savior.
Christ provides the only entrance to the freedom and serene joy in the midst of life’s challenges and turmoil. Be sure to know HE is able.
The Spirit's law of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.
