How does a person enter into a relationship with Jesus Christ?

Acts 3:19 says: "Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord." Repent literally means "a change of mind that results in a change of action." To repent, then, means to admit you are a sinner. You change your mind to agree with God that you are a sinner. The resulting "change in action" is, of course, the turning away from sin. Believe Jesus Christ died on the cross to save you from your sins and give you eternal life.
John 3:16 says: "For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life." Believing in Jesus is also a part of repenting. You change your mind from unbelief to belief, which results in a change of action. Come to Him by faith.
In John 14:6 Jesus said: "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me."
Faith in Jesus Christ is a change of mind that results in a change of action, coming to Him. You may pray a simple prayer to God. You may want to make your response to God a prayer. Prayer is simply communicating with God. Pray using your own words. There is no special formula. Just pray from your heart to God, and believe that He has saved you.
Don't doubt. Salvation is by grace, through faith. There's nothing you did, or ever can do, to deserve it. It's a free gift from God. All you have to do is receive it. Eph. 2:8 says: "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God."Tell someone about your decision. Romans 10:9-10 says, "If you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified.

Jesus is not "my father from above"...
Report as
well he is to me. Maybe not to you, but to me he is

there is nothing wrong with that. I'm just answering the way I want just like anyone else can, and I'm sorry if you don't like it.

I respect your opinion however, I do not appreciate you forcing your beliefs on me. And, if I wasn't being accurate, you would not have edited your answer as you did which is now more appropriate.

I edited my answer so I could move on from this question. Sorry you didn't like the answer..I changed it now...Its over.
Report as
I apologize that you feel you have to attack a member. I typed that I respected your opinion on your first answer, gave you a star on your edited answer, have no reason to reiterate my comments because apparently it is not important to you and you feel it better to misconstrue what another member is typing. All I was trying to enlighten you with is not everyone is born with Jesus as their "father from above". I will move on too. Enjoy your evening.

Im sorry if I have been rude to you. I didn't mean to be or act that way. The thing that made me say it was when you and kali were saying how wrong my answer was. Im not saying that my answer is ment for everyone. morely just for myself so anyway have a good night/evening

Ask Christ into your life, repent your sins to Him, make right things you wronged, read the bible, pray to God in the name of Christ thanking and just talking to Him. Pray to Jesus, keep repenting from sins and put Him first in everything.

You know how passionate a deep love relationship between a man and a woman can be? They would do ANYTHING for each other... they would even DIE for each other... their love is so strong that NOTHING can keep them apart! That kind of a love relationship doesn't begin to describe how deep and powerful and passionate our love relationship with God is supposed to be!

ABANDON REASON, give your ethics up, attain unmatched arrogance and refuse to consider you may be wrong. Deal only in absolutes, obey without question, forsake future generations for delusions of end times, deny the atrociousness of the doctrine you subscribe to, stifle science, hate without hesitation, be willing to go to war over a religion, demean those who disagree, attack the person not the idea and even if you are wrong- never ever lose an argument if it means slandering or even killing in the defense of your faith. Only then will your path to the dark side.. ER.. relationship with jesus begin.

The Bible says that God can see inside the hearts of all of His people. And it is written that "without faith it is impossible to please God". So God is looking inside of our hearts for faith. During His earthly ministry and Before the death of Jesus, eternal salvation with God came thru faith in WHO Jesus was. But after His death, burial, and Resurrection, the way to salvation became faith in WHAT He did. So God is looking inside of our hearts for faith in Christ's death, burial, and Resurrection. And the minute that He sees that faith in our hearts, we become His!!! He deposits the Holy Spirit IN us, ON us, and ALL AROUND us!!! From that minute on, we will never walk alone! He will be our Teacher, our Counselor, our Reminder, our Comforter, and our Hope!! And we can never lose it, and it can never be taken away from us! He will place His protective eye on us, and will pay especially close attention to our prayers. The Bible says now that Christ has risen, He is sitting at the right hand of God the Father in the throneroom of Heaven, and He's listening to and working out our prayers with The Father! you can think of Him there in the Throneroom or there in the room next to you, but DO think of Him often! That's why we are to pray in the mighty Name of Jesus! He is aware of our needs, and the things we want , He is always with us.We can have confidence that He cares about the things that we care about, and that He'll answer our prayers in the way that He knows what's best for us! Aren't we Blessed Indeed!!! There is profit in serving The Lord, He is Love! Thank you for your question, I would love to talk again some time, bye!

This how. You repent all your sins with your heart, be true and honest and have the right motives and not the wrong. Turn and surrender to Jesus and have faith. Believe in God so he can reach to you. You are Gods child and we all are his children. He wants to save all his beloved children. But how can he save his children if his children's heart are misguided, sinning, and corrupted by evil? He can save you if his children repent to him, believe in him, trust in his faith and timing to answer prayers. To form a relationship with God- be true in your heart when you repent, believe in God and his son Jesus and when you trust in him and his timing, he will help you. God loves us all. I'm a Christian. Have true faith in your heart. watch the movie on YouTube or Netflix, it's called "Passion of the Christ". you'll understand god and his son. I was once a Muslim but turned into Christianity by my girlfriend on dec 25th. friends around me who are Christian have told me of their miracle stories and were changed and saved by God.
