Jesus Christ is the only way to God

"Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
- John 14:5-6
The first followers of Jesus called themselves followers of "the way," (Acts 9:2, 24:14) which refers to the Jesus's statement that he is the only true way to have eternal life with God the Father.

"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God"
- Romans 3:23
In order to live with God when you die, you must live up to his standards. But we have all failed at one time or another to do what is right, which causes us to be separated from him...

"For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord"
- Romans 6:23
When we sin against God by doing what is wrong, we are deserving of the punishment of death. However, God has given us his son, Christ Jesus, as the way to eternal life, and there is nothing we can to do earn that. It is his free gift.

"But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
- Romans 5:8
God has always loved all people, even while they were doing wrong. So, to give everyone a second chance to live with him, God sent his only son, Jesus, to die the death we all deserved...

"because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved... for everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved."
- Romans 10:9, 13
This is the wonderfully good news of Christianity. You do not have to ask God or Jesus to do anything for you. The work is already finished. The bible says that when Jesus died, he was thinking about the joy of spending eternity with every person in the future who would come to the Father through him. If you are reading this and considering coming to Jesus, know that God loves you and that no matter how little you value yourself or your life, He values you so much that he gave his son over to death on your behalf so that you would never have to truly die.

But the condition stands that you must confess Jesus as your personal Lord and that you must believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead. It isn't a belief that has to start in your head, though there are plenty of great resources that speak to the evidence of the resurrection...

But the truth that Jesus is alive must reach your heart. He is not as distant as you may want to think, in fact, the scripture says that God cares about each of us individually so much that he knows how many hairs are on each of our heads...

If God is speaking to you, pray with me now and confess your need of a savior, rest in the assurance that Jesus death provides, and rejoice in the new life that we look forward to because Jesus is alive!

Prayer is simply talking to God

There's no magic formula, there's no tricks or gimmicks. God is real and he loves you and wants you to talk to Him. He is listening even now. If you want to enter into salvation today, then you may want to tell him something like this:

"God, you created everything. And you are perfect. I am not. I don't deserve to be talking to you or to even have you listening to me. But I believe in your love for me. I believe that you sent Jesus to die for me. I believe that you raised him from the dead to prove that you would give me new life, too. I can't promise that I will never doubt your love for me, but I promise to follow you all of my days. I give you my heart and I give you my life. God, thank you for creating me, thank you for hearing me, and thank you for Jesus. I turn away from my sin, my pride, and my shame, and I choose to follow you. Please show me how to live for you and help me to love everyone the way Jesus loves me."

He hears you and he loves you
