A single-minded dedication of a person to make Christ as Lord, is an act that honours God. Personal dedication is a decision of the heart to believe and trust Him for Eternal Purposes. It is a decision to depend upon God for help with spiritual and physical needs, which arise out of an awareness of human helplessness.
A confession of belief in Christ, acknowledging both His Divinity and Lordship is necessary for Salvation. Under the New Covenant that Christ instigated, salvation is impossible without such a belief.
God guides people through His Word and His intervention in daily life by circumstances to humble themselves before Him so that they can arrive at a decision for their eternal destiny. It is God's Will that His created people choose to be saved from His wrath by The Way of Redemption that he has provided, to have abundant life now and eternally through mankind's Saviour Jesus Christ, His Son.
The Scripture warns about rebellion. Both 2Corinthians 6:1-3 and Hebrews 4:7 explain that now is the Day of Salvation and to not have hardened hearts.
I come to You in the Name of Jesus Christ, Your Son.
Your Word says if I confess my sins to You, You will forgive me and remember them no more.
You are able to do this because your Son Jesus Christ died for my sins so that I might have eternal life as a gift to show me how much You love me.
I now ask You to forgive me for I am sorry that I have not always done what is right in thought, word or deed.
Your word says that if I come to Your Son Jesus, I will never be rejected, for if I am sincere to you I will have your protection forever.
I ask Jesus Christ to come into my heart and be Lord of my life.
I thank Him for dying on the cross for me, for He took my punishment for me. I believe that Jesus Christ is Your Son
and that you raised Him from the dead and
I confess that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Saviour.
I am now brought back to You through what Jesus did for me.
I believe that You are the Creator of all things and ask for
Your Holy Spirit and Wisdom.
I thank You for loving me and giving me Your gift of Eternal Life.
Lead me and Guide me through the rest of my life.
Thank You that now I am a member of Your Family, a Child of Your Kingdom, that continues forever,
and that my name is written in the Lamb's (Jesus) Book of Life.
