Isaiah 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
II. BELIEVE THE GOSPEL

Acts 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

Isaiah 55:7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.
IV. RECEIVE CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOUR
John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name:
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

V. CONFESS HIM AS YOUR LORD

Mark 8:37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
Mark 8:38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
In a simple act of faith and humility, why not get onto your knees and talk to God, just like you would to me or anyone near you. God’s not into show business, but the broken heart business.
Here’s some steps to take in your new journey:
Admit you are a sinner - not as easy as it sounds;
Be willing to turn from sin (repent, give it up);
Believe that Jesus Christ died for you, was buried, and rose from the dead;
Invite Jesus into your life to be your personal Savior!
If you have not done so, Here’s a simple prayer:
"Dear God I know I’m a sinner, I know I am not where I want to be, and I want your forgiveness! I believe that Jesus died on the cross to pay the price for my sins. Please wash me clean from all sin, shame, and guilt and come into my life to be my Lord and Savior. I ask and receive this in Jesus name, Amen!"
God bless you and yours.
