STEP 1 - ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE SINNED
"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:" - Romans 3:10
STEP 2 - REALIZE THERE IS A PENALTY FOR SIN
"For the wages of sin is death..." - Romans 6:23a
The word "DEATH" means separation. The death referred to here means eternal separation from God in the lake of fire as stated in Revelation 21:8: "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."
STEP 3 -ACCEPT THAT CHRIST PAID THE PENALTY OF SIN FOR YOU
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." - Romans 5:8
STEP 4 - KNOW THAT CHRIST WANTS TO GIVE YOU THE FREE GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN
"...but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." - Romans 6:23b
STEP 5 - BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST AND ASK HIM TO FORGIVE YOUR SIN AND BE YOUR PERSONAL LORD AND SAVIOR.
"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." - Romans 10:9-10
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." - Romans 10:13
Right now, right where you are, you can ask Jesus to forgive you of your sins and to be your Lord and Savior. I John 1:9 says, "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." You can pray something like this to God, "Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and that my sin separates me from You. I am sorry for my sin. Please forgive me of all the wrong I've done. From this moment forward my life is Yours. I will follow You and Your commands from now on. I am putting my faith and trust in You now, in Jesus' name, amen!"
