How can I know I'm ready for Jesus to come?

Cindy Tutsch

This may be the most important
question ever asked!
Here’s how you can know you’re ready:

  1. Recognize that you are a sinner and that the results of sin are death. (Romans 6:23)
  2. Believe that Jesus died on the cross to take the punishment for your sins. (Galatians 3:13; Acts 13:38-39)
  3. Ask Jesus to be Savior and Lord of your life, and to give you strength to turn away from your sins and live for Him. (Acts 3:19; Acts 16:31)

Complete surrender

If you pray, “Dear Jesus, I’m sorry for my sins. I want you to be Savior and Lord of my life. Help me to live for You,” then He accepts you into His family right then. You can KNOW you are saved (I John 5:13). Jesus feels bad when we worry about whether or not we are saved, after we have given our lives to Him. He wants us to believe that He loves us with all of His heart, and He wants us to TRUST Him with all of our hearts. Since we are part of His family, He wants to spend time with us. On this earth we spend time with Jesus through prayer (talking to Jesus like we would a friend) and through reading the Bible, which contains loving messages from God to us. Since we are part of God’s family, He wants us to be His representatives on earth, and help others as He did when He was living here.

Our salvation is a gift from God. We can never, ever earn it or deserve it. Are you thankful for salvation? Show Jesus your thanks! (John 14:15)
