He stands patiently at your heart and knocks. Let Him In. For the Bible says:
…That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved. …For with the heart man believes unto righteousness and with the mouth, confession is made unto salvation… …For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Romans 10:9, 10, & 13
Read about God’s Salvation Deal. Pray the following prayer, loud enough so that you can hear it:
“Heavenly Father, I acknowledge that you are God, and I am not. I am tired of being my own god, please forgive me. I have been disobedient and I am now sorry for my sins. I believe that Jesus Christ died for me and paid for my evil deeds. Come now into my heart, live inside of me, and be my personal Lord and Savior. I turn away from evil and I choose your will and your life. I believe with my heart and I say with my mouth that you, Jesus Christ, are now my Lord and my Savior. I totally commit myself to obeying you every day, for the rest of my life. Fill me with your Spirit and your power. In Jesus name, it is done! Thank you Jesus.”
Welcome to God’s family. You are now a Christian.

Karen – Don’t worry about losing your salvation. I do believe one can but the requirements are high and the actions required for it are just as huge. The mere fact that you are ‘scared’ tells me that you are Okay. People lose their salvation after rejecting God because they cannot be ‘renewed again unto repentance.’ Your fear means that you are open to conviction and repentance. A lost person would be cold about the whole thing. Jesus is still in your heart and you have a relationship with Him. You just need to reconnect the fellowship.
Repent sincerely and turn away from what you were doing. If you have to make changes in your life, do it. Do it with the expectation of God’s future acceptance and blessing, then go on. The feelings mean nothing but they will come back. Don’t let the Devil speak to you and condemn you with guilt. That is what he does best.
Read and the Bible, these articles, and confess the confessions and scripture lists. Do it without feelings. There is great reward in it. Most people get stuck because they think the feelings come first. They usually come last. That is faith.
