THE WAY TO GOD

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

John 14:6

I have got one hope of going to Heaven. It’s only one. Jesus died for me. But the good news is Jesus died for you. But it  doesn’t mean you are going to go to Heaven until you come to the place that you accept God’s plan for your life. And accept that you have sinned, and realise your only hope is what Jesus did for you. I would urge you to pray this prayer, wherever you are. Pray it right now.

Lord Jesus, I need you. I want you. I know I’m a sinner. I am sorry for my sins. Wash my sins away by Jesus’ blood. I welcome your Holy Spirit into my heart. As best as I know how, I give you my life.

If you prayed that prayer and meant it, you’re ready, you’re saved. Don’t be ashamed. Tell someone that you’ve prayed that prayer. And know this is the way you go to Heaven. And if you’ve just prayed that prayer for the first time that means you’ve just been born again. Happy Birthday.

 

Did you pray this prayer?
Hello and congratulations on becoming part of the family of God.  We, at Kensington Temple, are so excited to connect with you to take you forward in your new journey.

The good news of salvation for all who believe that Jesus brought to the world is quite straightforward, but can often be lost in all the noise and the busyness of life today.

In fact, it is as simple as ABC!

A – There is something for you to Admit.
  • First, you have to admit your need for God and his forgiveness.
    The Bible tells us, “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23)That means every one of us face the consequences of our sin, “The wages of sin is death…” until we receive the gift of eternal life, “but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23)

    Once we know the true condition of our heart we understand our need for a Saviour.

B – There is something for you to Believe.
  • Second, you need to believe in Jesus Christ and put your trust in him as your Lord and Saviour.
    “God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8)Jesus took our place on the cross and the death that was due to us came to him, so that we could receive the eternal life that he offers.

    We need to acknowledge that Jesus died for us – that he paid the penalty for our sin, that he is raised from the dead, and is Lord of all. Once we do this we can transfer our trust from ourselves to Jesus.

    “… if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9).

C – There is something for you to Commit.
  • Third, commit your life to Jesus Christ with a simple, but sincere prayer.
    God calls you to commit your life to Christ. How do you do this?Basically, it means that you transfer your trust from yourself to Christ. You stop trusting in anything that you can do and receive the free gift of eternal life Jesus has made available to you.

    For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast (Ephesians 2:8-9).

    From this moment onwards, the rest of your life can begin. You will begin walking in the power and energy of the eternal life that he gives you.

    Now, we can add another element to the ABC of the gospel, and this is…

D – There is something for you to become – a Disciple of Jesus Christ.
  • Being a disciple means becoming a follower of Jesus Christ. You make it your primary goal in life to become like him, to learn from him and to allow him to form his character in you. This is a life-long adventure and you do not have to go it alone. The church is the community of those who are committed to helping one an another to become like Jesus. Jesus give us his Holy Spirit to help us and give us the ability to live for him.

Now that you have committed your life to Christ, here are a few ‘healthy lifestyle’ tips that will help you grow as a Christian.

Eat good food – by reading the Bible.

The Bible is where we find the truth about God and what it means for us to be in relationship with him. The Bible is like bread for your soul.

If you are new to the Christian faith, then a good place to start is by reading the Bible. A good place to start is with the Gospel of Mark, because it gives you a good introduction to the life of Jesus. We can also send you Every Day with Jesus for New Christians. This booklet gives you a short passage to read every day, along with a brief explanation. To get your copy, please subscribe to our Way to God email list (see below).

Drink plenty – by praying to God.

Prayer is talking to God and listening for his responses. It is as natural and refreshing as drinking water.

You can talk to God anytime, anywhere and about anything, but it is important that you set aside time each day to read your Bible and speak with God. So plan that in your daily routine.

Breathe fresh air – by enjoying the atmosphere of worship in church.

So much of our world tries to ignore God, so it is important that you spend time focussing on him alone. That’s what we do when we gather in our churches on Sunday, both physically and online.

Join us in Kensington Temple (or online) every Sunday. We have services at times to suit everyone: 9am, 11am, 2.30pm and 5.30pm (UK time).

Relax with others – in the company of God’s family.

All Christian believers are part of God’s family. As brothers and sisters in Christ we encourage, strengthen and challenge one another to live as God intends. In Kensington Temple we meet in small ‘cell groups’ midweek for that purpose. You can also join an online cell group.

Take exercise – by stepping out and telling someone about your decision

You can tell us by subscribing to the THE WAY TO GOD email (see form below). One of our team can contact you and help you take your next steps.

Don’t forget to include your email address if you would like us to send you some more helpful material for new Christians.
