How can you know beyond doubt that Jesus Christ really is the Son of God, the way to salvation? The answer is simple: Try Him! Simply humble yourself and sincerely ask Him to reveal Himself to you. Ask Him to come into your heart, forgive you for your sins, and fill your life with His love, peace, and joy.
Jesus is real and He loves you. So much so that He suffered for your sins and died in your place so that you wouldn’t have to, if you’ll just receive Him and His forgiveness and His free gift of eternal life. But He can’t save you unless you want Him to. His love is all-powerful, but He won’t force His way into your life.
Jesus says, “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me” (Revelation 3:20). He gently knocks at the door of your heart. He doesn’t break it down or force His way in. He stands there meekly, lovingly, patiently, waiting for you to open your life and ask Him in.
Will you receive Him? If so, He will be your closest friend and companion, who will be with you always. He came for love and lived in love and died for love, that we might live and love forever!
You can receive Jesus into your heart right now by sincerely praying this simple prayer:
“Dear Jesus, please forgive me for all the wrongs I’ve done. I believe that You are the Son of God and that You died for me. I open the door to my heart to You. Please come in, Jesus, and give me eternal life. Then help me to share Your love and truth with others. Amen.”
God has promised to answer your prayer, so you are now His child. He will never leave you (Hebrews 13:5). He loves you that much!
About the Author
David Brandt Berg (1919-1994) was so committed to Jesus and Christian service that God was able to use him to start a worldwide Christian missionary movement.
Berg’s parents were both active pastors and evangelists, and his early years were spent traveling with them in evangelistic work. Shortly after being drafted into the U.S. Army in 1941, he nearly died of double pneumonia. After determining to rededicate his life to Christian service, he experienced a miraculous healing.
For most of the next 27 years, he worked as a pastor and in various evangelistic endeavors until, in 1968, he received God’s call to take the Gospel to the hippies of southern California. There he and his then teen-aged children began a ministry to the youth that grew and eventually became known as The Family. Today, members of The Family engage in missionary and humanitarian work in over 100 countries worldwide.
Berg called on his followers to devote their full time to spreading the message of Christ’s love and salvation as far and wide as possible, unfettered by convention or tradition, and to teach others to do the same.
Berg also decried the de-Christianization and decay in moral values of Western society. He viewed the trend towards a New World Order as setting the stage for the rise of the Antichrist, a godless world dictator whom the Bible predicts will rule the world in the last days before Christ’s return.
Berg’s lively, down-to-earth and sometimes unconventional approach to heavenly matters makes his writings a unique contribution to Christian literature. He once said that the greatest thing one Christian can teach another is how to follow God and hear from Him fresh every day. Through his writings, he did just that.
