First you have to admit you have a problem that your a sinner. The bible says that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Secondly, you need to realize that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you. Jesus came to earth to pay a debt He did not owe because we owed a debt we couldn’t pay. The bible says that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us. Next, you have to repent of your sin and turn from it.
‘Well if I become a Christian do I have to give up anything?’ The answer is yes you do. You have to give up guilt, misery, and the fear of death and replace it with forgiveness and a life with purpose and absolute certainty that you’ll go to heaven when you die. You might call it God’s trade in deal. You don’t have to change to come to Jesus but you have to let Jesus change you. And yes you have to repent the bible says to repent and be converted that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord (Acts 3:19). Then you need to Receive Jesus Christ into your life. Being a Christian isn’t rules or regulations, but simply put, its having a relationship with God. To as many as that received, the bible says, to them gave he power to become the sons of God (John 1:12). Its a friendship and a relationship that starts as you answer the knock at the door of you heart and let Jesus Christ inside of you and to live His life through you. If you would like to you have your sin forgiven, your guilt removed and know that you’ll go to heaven when you die.

‘Lord Jesus I know that I am a sinner. But I believe that you died on the cross for me and rose from the dead. Now I turn from my sin ask you to come into my life and be my savior, my Lord, my God, and my friend. I chose to follow you from this moment forward.
In Jesus name, Amen.’
You just prayed this prayer God’s word promises that Christ Himself has come to live inside of you.
