Are You Born Again?
Steps to Salvation

ARE YOU GOING TO HEAVEN?

 

 

1.  Every person must be born again to know God and have everlasting life. *John 3:3  (John 3:16)

 

2.  The reason we must be born again is found in *Rom. 3:23.

 

3.  "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Rom. 6:23)

a.    You cannot earn salvation. You cannot do it on your own.

b.    It is God's gift to you. (Eph. 2:8,9)

 

4.   Being saved or born again is receiving Jesus as your Lord (Master), committing yourself to follow His Word (the Bible), and believing that God raised Jesus from the dead. *Rom. 10:9,10  (1 John 2:3)

 

5.  Are you ready to make this life-changing commitment?

 

6.  Pray according to Rom. 10:9,10

"God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I ask You to come into my life. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is my Lord and I believe in my heart that You have raised Him from the dead. I turn my back on sin and I commit to follow You for the rest of my life. I thank You, Father, for saving me!"

 

7.  You are now born again, forgiven and on your way to heaven. You are a new creation (2 Cor. 5:17). Yet this is only the beginning. You need to renew your mind to live a powerful life as a believer. *Rom. 12:1,2

a.  You need to read the Bible regularly in order to grow. (Rom. 10:17)

b.  Getting together with believers on a regular basis is also important. (Heb. 10:25)

 

8.  If doubts or fears come to mind about salvation, reject them and realize that the Bible is what your salvation is based on, not what you think or feel. (Rom. 10:9,10)

 

9.  You will need to be baptized in water as a believer. (Acts 10:48)

 

10. God has also given us the gift of the Holy Spirit. You need this gift to live the Christian life God wants you to live. Let's look at *John 14:26.

 

 

Steps To Recommitment

 

1.  Have you been born again? (Rom. 10:9,10)

2.  God promises His forgiveness if you confess/admit your sin. *1 John 1:9.

3.  Confess their sins silently to God and have them say Amen when they're done doing that. You then pray for them, thanking         God for forgiving them according to 1 John 1:9.

4.  You need to be trained in the Bible in order to grow. *Rom. 12:1,2.

5.  Have you been filled with the Holy Spirit? If not, teach and pray with them. If they are filled, share *Jude 20 and pray with             them for a short time.

Steps To Being Filled With The HolyGhost

1.  Have you been born again? (Rom. 10:9,10)

 

2.  Let's look at Who the Holy Spirit is:

a.  He is your Comforter and Teacher. He wants to help you. *John 14:26

b.  He gives you power to be a strong witness for Jesus. *Acts 1:8

 

3.  What happens when you are filled with the Holy Spirit? You can speak in other tongues. *Acts 2:4

 

4.  The Holy Spirit is already here for every born again person. You don't need to wait or work to receive Him. (Acts 2:38,39)

 

5.  Your mind will not understand or gain anything from tongues. It will sound useless and foolish to the natural mind. You are         speaking mysteries to God, not to yourself or other people. *1 Cor. 14:2

 

6.  Speaking in tongues is an act of your will. God gives you the ability to do it but will not force you or do it for you. *1 Cor. 14:14,15

 

7.  If you ask for the Holy Spirit in faith, the Father will give Him to you. *Luke 11:13

 

8.  Would you like to receive the Holy Spirit today?

 

9.  Pray according to Luke 11:13 , ask God to fill you with the Holy Spirit.

    " Father, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I ask You to fill me with Your Holy Spirit. I receive Him from You and according        to the Bible I can now pray in other tongues. "

 

10. Praying in tongues regularly will build or charge up your spirit man. *Jude 20

 

11. You need to renew your mind according to the Bible to live a powerful life as a believer. (Rom. 12:1,2)

 

12. You need to be baptized in water if you haven 't been. (Acts 10:48)
