Know Christ Personally
To know Christ personally means to get to know Him as you would a friend. In a friendship you spend time with the other person, and you have vulnerable conversations. Talking regularly is an important part of a relationship. To know Jesus is not just to read about Him educationally, but also to spend time understanding who He is. First John 5:20 says, “And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true; and we are in him who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.” We should pray for understanding so that we can know Jesus and, consequently, know God.
Knowing Jesus begins with believing that He is our Savior who defeated death. “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). Knowing God is also believing that He died to save us from our sin. “He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed” (1 Peter 2:24).
Accept Christ Today
If you believe that Jesus is who He said He is and want to accept His offer to be your Savior, you can pray a prayer something like this: “Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and apart from you deserve only judgment. I believe that Jesus Christ is God’s Son who came to earth to live the perfect life that I couldn’t. He died on the cross to pay the penalty for my sin. Then He rose again after three days, proving He is true, and offering salvation and eternal life to all who put their faith in Him. Please forgive me for my sins and help me live for you. I want to know Jesus personally. Thank you for accepting me and giving me eternal life.”
