SURRENDERING YOUR LIFE TO JESUS

LEADING SOMEONE TO SALVATION

Seeing people surrender their lives to Christ is one of the greatest joys of serving with Women of Faith — in fact, ultimately it’s why we do what we do!  As you serve, you may encounter people who are ready to make this life-changing decision. Check out this guide for a few tips on leading someone through a salvation prayer.

FAITH

We hope you will choose to know God better through His Son Jesus Christ, and it is your decision to accept him into your heart. We will continue to love you either way. Our Voices and leaders are Biblically based teachers who share truths found in the scriptures. Some share their own unvarnished faith stories with courage and transparency. 
 

BEFORE PRAYING

Use Scripture to explain the Gospel:

  • All of us have sinned and fallen short of God’s standards. (Romans 3:23)
  • The just punishment for our sin is eternal separation from God in hell. (Romans 6:23)
  • There’s no way we can ever earn our way into heaven. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
  • Jesus, the Son of God, lived a sinless human life among us. (Hebrews 4:14-15)
  • He died on the cross then rose again, defeating sin forever. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)
  • Because of Jesus’ perfect sacrifice, we can be reconciled with God and spend eternity with Him in heaven. (John 14:6, Galatians 3:26, John 3:16)
  • Salvation is God’s free gift to us, but we must accept it. (Romans 10:9-10)

GOD LOVES US ALL

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:16

He created each of us by hand, and each one of us is unique. Jesus came to seek and to save the lost, so we feel compelled to do the same. All of this wonderful diversity means we hold a variety of views. At Women of Faith we focus on what unites us. We choose to love and to offer grace to one another.
We are here to laugh with you, cry with you, and walk beside you on your faith journey. By having a relationship with God, we choose to encourage you to deepen your spiritual walk with Him. If you are in a different place right now, we choose to introduce you to a community who loves you more than you know.  
The bottom line is this:  God loves us.  All of us.  And He chooses for us all to love one another.

 

PRAYING TOGETHER

Emphasize that there are no magical words to pray—it’s more about the condition of your heart. Some important components can be remembered with ABC:

Admit that you’re a sinner in need of a Savior
Believe that Jesus died for you and rose again
Commit to live the rest of your life for Him

Here’s one example:

“Heavenly Father, forgive me of all my sins. Make me brand new. I believe Jesus died for me and rose again so I could live for you. Fill me with your Spirit so I could know you, serve you, and follow you the rest of my life. My life is not my own—today I give it to you. Thank you for new life! In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.”

CONGRATULATIONS!
