Deciding to place your faith in Jesus is a big deal. Jesus resets our relationship with God as completely forgiven – a new start; and gives us his Spirit to help us live as a believer – a new life. Jesus becomes your Lord and Saviour.
To remind us of the good news Jesus brings, below are two summaries of the what Jesus has achieved for you, then a prayer you can pray to become a Christian. If you aren’t already connected on campus, find other Christians at your uni to encourage you in your first steps as a new believer.
THE TOMB CHANGES EVERYTHING.
If Jesus has risen from the dead then what he claimed was true: his death was not a meaningless tragedy, it was the price he willingly paid to set us free from the consequences of our sin and to heal his broken world. At the very beginning, Jesus invited those who heard him to rethink their beliefs and priorities and to accept for themselves this good news that changes everything. The invitation still stands.
We’ve been seeing for ourselves who Jesus is and what he has done through the gospel of Mark. We’ve seen his miracles, his forgiveness, his deity, his compassion and his death and resurrection.
Two Ways to Live is another summary of the gospel. It starts at creation, and shows how Jesus’ death and resurrection is the good news we must trust in for eternal life.
If you would like to accept God’s invitation to surrender your life and place your faith in Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, here is the prayer you can pray to become a Christian.
Dear Father, I’m sorry I’ve been living my life without you as my God. I admit I deserve your judgement, and I cannot fix this myself. Please forgive me.
Thank you for sending Jesus to die in my place. Thank you that Jesus rose from the dead and is alive today. Please help me now to live with Jesus as my Saviour and Lord.
If you have decided to follow Jesus, that’s a fantastic and life-changing decision. Like all big decisions we usually need a little help getting started well.
We encourage you to tell a Christian friend at uni.
You may have questions. You may be excited. You may be unsure about what to do next. Someone from your campus would love to help as you get started following Jesus!
