Think of the shortness of this life. After death there will be no more opportunities to turn to Christ. It will be too late. Think of Jesus Christ knocking now, asking to come into your life. You want him to come into your life, or perhaps you want to make sure he has come into your life.It might help you to say this prayer, phrase by phrase, quietly, thoughtfully, thinking carefully what you are saying, and what you are doing.
"Lord Jesus Christ, I know I have sinned in my thoughts, words and actions. There are so many good things I have not done. There are so many sinful things I have done. I am sorry for my sins and turn from everything I know to be wrong." "You gave your life upon the cross for me. Gratefully I give my life back to you. Now I ask you to come into my life. Come in as my Savior to cleanse me. Come in as my Lord to control me. Come in as my Friend to be with me. And I will serve you all the remaining years of my life in complete obedience." Amen
