What's wrong with this picture?
You're not going to be a successful fisherman unless your bait is tied on. It does you no good if it isn't connected to your line. You know what? We are like that too. God says in John 15:5, "apart from me you can do nothing". This is why it is really important to know about...
B- Because of sin we are separated from God. (Romans 3:23; 6:23)
A- Accept God's gift of forgiveness. (John 3:16; Ephesians 2:8,9)
I- Invite Jesus into your heart. (Romans 10:9, 13; 1 John 5:12, 13)
T- Turn from your old way of life and trust God. (2 Corinthians 5:17; Proverbs 3:5,6)
How do you do this? Just say this simple prayer. Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I'm a sinner and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe that you died for my sins. I want to turn from my sins. I now invite you to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow you as my personal Lord and Savior. Amen
